Is 12.50 too wide?

Is a 35/12.50/20 in either the Toyo AT 2 or MT too wide for the stock 8.5" wheel? I know there is another thread but it's 18 pages so this is quicker, hopefully.

The other size 295/65/20 is a little narrower I know but I might be able to trade my stock tire for the AT2's in the 35/12.50/20 with only a small difference. But, I don't want to do something that isn't going to work. Besides, the metric size is about 25 bucks a tire more when bought new, why is that? Tire prices are ridiculous these days...... Just saying but I know you all know this.

Thanks for your inputs.

Steve

I ran 35/12.5/20 on my stock wheel and loved it

You will need to play with your psi to not wear out the centers before the outers touch the pavement. I run my 315s on a 10" wheel at 40 psi. I ran about 50 in my 285s on the same wheel.

I figured I might have to play with the psi a little. Will they look like they are rounded on the sides or look like the wheel is too narrow?

There won't be any sidewall bulge, it will look like a fat tire on a skinny rim.

I think there is a 285/75/20 thats still the 35" height but only like 11" wide. . I guess it depends on what you want. Im old school from when lifted trucks had 15" wheels with TSL 38" Boggers on them. They were all tire, but some guys like the big wheel rubberband look.

These are 37"X13.50"X18's.

Both are 315/75-16s. The red truck is mine with a 10 inch wheel, the other is on a stock wheel. In the picture of my tire you can see how pinched the other sidewall is compared to mine.
