Default Deciding between 2 tire sizes?

Debating between Mickey Thompson ATZ3's, 275/65/20 or 35x12.5x20?

I have platinum 4x4, looking to install 2.5 AS LEVEL with 3'' rear block. Which tire will best fit this setup without having rubbing issues or having to do any trimming or mods?

If you have stock wheels the 275/65R20 will give you the best chance to fit without rubbing.

The 35x12.50R20 will fit your rim, but what I have found is the 8.5" wide rim with +44mm offset sits to close to the control arm and this wide of a tire mounted on that rim will rub the control arm.

The 295/60s are extremely close to rubbing my control arm on my truck, and rubs the sway bar on full lock. Unless youre running spacers, I wouldnt go wider than that
