Default Need Help With Tire Size

I blew out a tire on the highway on my 2007 Quad Cab 4x4 and im ready for all 4 new tires. i do not want to get stock tires i want to upgrade now. my question is can i fit 35 x 12.5 x 20 on the stock 20's rims with my 3" body lift? do i need wheel spacers on front? any help would be great because i need to buy soon! thanks. this is what it looks like now with my current tires

I'm pretty sure that the width on the 20''s is around 11, so I would be careful about going wider.

i bought 1/4" spacers on summit racing for the front.. just wondering if the 35" tire will fit. everyones saying you need a leveling kit. isnt the 3" body lift basically adding the height i need anyways? it just lifted the back too. just need to know if the body lift will be fine! thanks

The body lift is sufficient for clearing the tire height for sure, but you said you had 1/4'' spacers, so they should be good. I feel like there might be a rub, but only at full crank.

I have installed a leveling kit, and P295 60R20 Nitto Terra Grapplers, that by their chart meansures 34.4 height, with NO clearance problem. Yes they do rub at full lock, but how many times do you actually get to full lock?

thats cool. im looking at a set of 295/65-20 trail grapplers im wondering if they will fit with my 3 inch body lift and 1/4" spacers but without the bilsteins for now? i brought my truck into the shop and the guy didnt take it apart yet because he wasnt sure if the stock spring seat was welded onto the stock strut, or if it slides off and u put them on the new strut. any help would be great before i tell him to take it apart! thanks
