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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
