Nitto's and Fuel Maverick Installed! Setup and Pics

After a lot of research and uncertain on what setup to get, I ordered my new wheels.

Truck Setup:

100% stock. I didn't want to level or lift the truck. Besides being my daily driver, I use it mainly for towing my 5th wheel. I wanted to do as little as I could to affect the towing capabilities of the truck. I have a 2012 Crew Cab Lariat FX4. Stock 20" wheels and the only mod I had was adding airbags.

Rim Setup:

I knew I was set on a 20x9 rim but was unsure about offset. I decided on the Fuel Maverick 20x9 Black/Machined with +20mm offset.

Tire Setup:

The plan was either Toyo or Nitto 35x12.5. I ended up going with the Nitto Trail Grappler M/T 295/65 R20. Reason being I could only run 65 max psi in the 35x12.5 where with these I can run 80 psi and they have a higher load rating. I felt more comfortable with this setup for towing my 5th wheel. The tires are close in size to the 35x12.5. I think they are just slightly narrower in width.

Fit:

I am really pleased with the way they came out. Slightly wider stance and no rubbing at all even at full lock on a turn. I only have ridden on the twice but so far so good. I'm running 65 psi when not towing. I will be towing on June 1st with them and will be able to give more info after that trip.

Pics are below. First is truck when stock, then the other pics are the new setup.
Any questions let me know.

night and day. Those are the tires that I want to run on the stock 16" dually rims. Good to know they run a little narrower.

Looks good man. I only run 45 in my nittos. E-rated. gives a bit nicer ride. two sets of trails and two sets of muds. They wore nice for me at that psi.

Isnt 80 the MAX....so while towing it will increase, correct? just something to check out, id hate to blow a tire

Great looking wheel tire combo

80 is the max. But from what I understand that psi gives you the max load rating. 4000lbs at 80psi. Not sure if it increases whole towing.

looks good, any issues with tire light? or engine light?
my buddy just went up in tire size and engine light came on for axle ratio discrepancy.
thanks!

No engine light. Tire pressure light stays on. I need it reset and using the manual it doesn't work. Next time I'm at my dealer I will ask.

You should fit them without a problem on stock rims from what I read. Honestly I was worried about the ride and I have to say at 65 psi I'd be willing to say they ride better than my stock Michelins. A little more cushiony. I did run 80 psi on the stock tires though.

As far as noise I did expect some but it's way better than I expected. You'll know they are there but my wife can't tell the difference. It's just a slight hum. Nothing like the mud grapplers I've ridden on. So far I love them.
