Isn't that the truth.
ok well i just oreder 3 inches for the front an 2 inches for the back. im going to have to get the money for the wheels and tires but its a good start to fitting on my 35x12.50 for sure.

Do you know if these specs will work for 20" wheels as well? I recently purchased a 2006 FX4 and the previous owner opted for the 20" wheels. Will I be able to run 35x12.50 on these stock 20' wheels?

Yes they will work. Those wheels are an inch wider than the other stock wheels but you'll be fine.

This is a great guide but please allow me to make everyone laugh when I ask this question:

I have a stock 05 4x4 and I'm putting on a 2 1/2 level. Going off of:
Quote:
On a leveled truck(2" kit and larger) you can run 35X12.5" tires on a 4WD and 33X12.5" tires on a 2WD truck, using the stock wheels.
When you look up tires you see: 295/75/16 Load "D" O/D 33.3 as shown on http://www.rimzoneonline.com/nittoterragrappler.htm

Can someone educate me on the conversion for 35X12.5" on stock 17 rims?

A 35x12.5x17 is close to a 315x70x17. You can run these on stock 7 1/2" wheels but you may get some slight rubbing on the control arm when making a hard turn. This is on a leveled 4x4.

Going off what you said I don't see that selection here:
http://www.rimzoneonline.com/nittoterragrappler.htm#17

However I do see "305/70/17 Load "E" O/D 33.8" - Is this the same but smaller?

And what does Load E and O/D mean?

Question Replacing the stock tires

I've been reading these threads for months. Let me try to get this clear once and for all: I can put a 33x12.5 or a 35x12.5 on my stock 08 4x4 20" rims and there will be NO RUBBING? I talked to the tire stores and they always wanna sell me something in stock and push the 285/60r20 on me. I really want a nice beefy tire that wont rub and i don't have to cut anything and keep my stock rims. Any help much appreciated. Thanks guys!

do you have a leveling kit? the perfect tire for a leveled truck with no rubbing is a 285/65/20 it's like a 35x11 tire and will fit perfect and look damn good. BFG makes a tire that size and it looks sexy as hell on the stock 20's
this truck had a 2" leveling kit and 285/65/20's
