@Horizon122 12.50 on a 7" lol you got everyone beat so far! and to think i was hesitant by putting a 12.50 on a 8"
The way i understand it is that if the rim is too narrow for the tire, then the tire will distort sideways while cornering. and if you have a too wide rim on an narrow tire, then you will have a harsh ride bc the side walls dont have enough curvature to flex over bumps or potholes.

It's all about air pressure! Iv'e been running these for 3 years now at 50psi and have no wear issues or handling issues. Iv'e ran up to 100mph in Mexico numerous times and truck is straight as an arrow, same with high speed cornering and maneuvering.

Results may vary based on tire choice, if it is 65 or 80 psi tire, wheel size and the CONDITION OF YOUR FRONT END COMPONENTS/ALIGNMENT.

35/12.50R20 or 295/65R20???

I went with a General X3 295 because the load rating is 4080 lbs/up to 80 psi and the 35” is 3198 lbs up to 65psi . The 295 is a little taller and a little narrower than the 35. I like the taller tire on the factory 20” rims.
The 295 spec is a 8-10” wide rim.
The 35” spec is a 8.5-11” wide rim.

Here is a pic before the leveling kit.

@Sevans16 looks good! I realy wanted to use my stock 20s but ended up going with the Falkens 325/65R18 on a 18x9.5 rim.
really impressed with this tire so far, no road noise and cant wait to test it in the rain and snow.
