315/75/16 on stock 16" rims? Does it work?

Hey y'all I'm lookin to see if mt's that are 315/75/16 which is basically a 35x12.5 tire would fit on my stock 16x7 rims on my '99? On the tires websites they say it wont fit but I've heard of guys doin' it. Any opinions or pictures appreciated!

'99 F250 7.3l

- Diamond Eye 5" Exhaust
- Riffraff Air Intake

i started a thread because I couldn't decide what size to go with, and if you go wider than 11" you need to adjust the tire pressure so the tire isn't ballooned
here's the link: tire question
I don't wanna go 315 but i was debating between 285 and 305

We would recommend that you look at the tire manufacturers web site for their approved rim width. They have approved rim widths for safety reasons.

Here is a link to Nitto's web site showing their specs:

i wouldn't do it. the tire will be ballooned like crazy and trust me you will fill it. every time you yank the steering or hit a bump in a curve you will fill the rear end sway. i had them on MT classic 16x10s and they were still ballooned. i could be wrong but i don't even think that the 315/75r16s are quite as big as the 35x12.50. i think they are 34x11 something. someone correct me if I'm wrong

They are close enough for comparison. 315mm = 12.50 inches. A 315 is also 34.6 inches tall, about what you would expect from a 35.

As far as using a 7 inch rim goes: I wouldn't mount anything bigger than a 255 on a 7 inch wheel. Hell, I really liked my 285s on 10 inch wheels. I run my 315s at no more than 40 psi to not run them bald in the center on 10 inch wheels.

The red truck is my 315 on a 10" wheel. The goldish truck is a 315 on a stock wheel.

On my truck, you can clearly see that the wheel is much closer to the tread width. The other wheel being so much thinner than the tread width is why the tire looks sucked in so much.
