Pics of tires with factory 20s <----Click that.

And where are you seeing tires that are 305s wide that are 36.8 tall? They only say the 37X13.50s are that tall. The only 305 they list has an aspect ratio of 55 which is nowhere near a 36.8...

Thanks for the link....ok, say i get 35's do you think 35x13.5 r20 on stock rim would be too wide? will it rub really bad on radius arm? should i stick with the 12.50?

what about 37's with just a level kit?
would i rub up my quarter panel on the bottom side pretty bad?

All I know is my 325/65/20 Terra Grapplers rubbed the Radius arm, but it didn't cause a single problem. It would only rub at full lock, which I made it a point to only turn that sharp if I had to. If I remember right the width on those is somewhere around 13.0, and the height is almost 36''. That being said, I had enough room for 37s. The extra half inch would only take 1/4 of an inch from the turning radius at most, which wouldn't matter and you'd get the stuffed look.

Technically, no. But that guy in the link I sent you is doing it so it can be done. The Terra Grapplers and most 12.50s say they aren't supposed to work but do, and wear fine from what I've seen.

I have a 2011 F350 and ran the 325/60/20 on my stock rims with no lift and they did great. I put a Ready lift 3.5 on and aftermarket wheels with -12 backspace and they rubbed a little.
