    Just had the opportunity to view numerous pics of your truck. I have a silver 2010 Lariat 4x4 and am unhappy with the 275x70x18's I put on it. Now that I have seen your truck, I'm really unhappy. Great job, it looks awesome. Now I know what size tire I want and how it will look.

    i choose to go with the 305/55/20 because i only wanted to go to a 33" tall tire - i was worried the larger I went the more effects I would feel from the change (gas mileage, drop in acceleration, handling, etc.) and I also did not want any rubbing issues. I can report that there is no rub with the setup I have. After having them, i do not think there would have been much if any difference in the issues I had concerns about if i had choose to go to a larger diameter tire.

    also, from the pictures i saw, i just liked to look too. I didn't want the ENTIRE wheel well filled up with tires that looked to big to fit in there, and the 33" height did that for me. I wanted as wide as i could get regardless, as that is the look I was after and the performance of the wide tires offroad is amazing

    hope this helps!

    Hi KGSloan,

    I think your setup looks absolutely perfect; really love the Nitto Trails!

    I'm new to forum and been doing research all month. I have 2011 FX4/3.73/stock 20" wheels. I'm adding a 2" AS level next week and want to do tires, too. Choices are BFG ATKO or Nitto Trails (like you). Is there a reason you chose the 305/55/20 over, say, 285/65/20 or 295/60/20? Do you like the width more than the height or is there a rubbing issue you think I might have with a taller tire?

    Thanks for any advice/help you can offer!

    love the new wheels looking to do the same to my tuxedo black Fx4. How much Did you pay for them if you don't mind me asking?

    No issues other then being real close on the inside to the upper control arm. No rubbing though with the Terra Grapplers. I ran at stock height with the 305's for about 6k miles so they will work on a 4x4 in stock form. Thank's for the comment on this old guy's ride! Don
