Default Nitto Terra Grapplers in 295/65r20??

Hey y'all,

Newer guy here that has been doing a lot of research on a level and/or lift and have a question(s) about the Terra Grapplers. I'll preface this by saying that initially, I'm looking to just install the Bilstein 5100's at either 2.1" or 2.8" and possibly a rear coil spacer. Does anyone know if these come in a 35" size? It seems that the I have only found these tires in 295/60r20, which if I'm not mistaken, is more of a 34.5" tire? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I know a lot of guys here are running M/T's, but I'm just curious if maybe an A/T tire would look pretty good with a level and possibly new wheels. Also, would an A/T be lighter than an M/T and potentially mitigate some of that power loss that comes with lifting the truck? Or does the sheer size/weight of any 34-35" tire have more to do with that as opposed to the tire type/tread pattern? Sorry for the newb questions, but I'm still trying to learn and haven't done any suspension mods to trucks I've owned in the past. Thanks in advance for the help.

Nitto doesn't make the Terra Grappler in a full 35x12.5 but a 295/60/20 will be the same height. Most 35" tires only measure 34.5" tall when mounted anyway. The only difference is that the 295's are slightly narrower which isn't the worst thing in the world. If you're planning to run stock wheels that's better for you anyway.

AT tires look great with a level too... lots of guys are running them and that number is increasing everyday because of the nicer AT tires on the market now. Check out the Toyo AT2's or AT2 Extreme's if you want more of an aggressive looking AT tire.
The size is the main factor that contributes to the power/mpg loss but the weight does play into it as well. A lighter tire won't give you as much of a loss but the difference between the two won't be drastically different.

If you want to see some pictures to different level/wheel and tire set ups check out the Guide to Leveling & Wheel and Tire Sizing linked in my signature below. I put a bunch of links in there to different set ups.

Thanks for the response Brandon. That all makes sense and remember reading that 35's run a bit smaller, but depends on manufacture I guess.

I keep going back and forth on running the stock wheels or going for aftermarket. Mostly can't decide what I think will look best with my truck, but have a few options in mind. I guess the cost savings is appealing with running the stock wheels. Then again, looking at all of the setups here on the forum has my money burning a hole in my pocket lol. Too many options.

That link does have a ton of helpful information and great pictures. It just keeps raising more questions for me.

Default Wheel sizes

Hi all, I have a 2013 ram 1500 bighorn with stock 20x9" clad wheels. I am installing bilsteins at 2.1 with some beefier rear springs and rear bilsteins. I am looking at 3 options for tires the toyo at or at extremes and the nitto grapplers. I am still in the air about mounting to stock rims and what max tire size I could purchase as to not rub. I also have my eye on a couple of rims, one being Fuel dune 20x9 with a -12 offset, what would be the max tire size for aftermarket wheels? Benefit of either choice? Recommendations? Thanks for all the great info, I have read the guide threads as well as many others. Great info and support.

Typically the widest you can go on stock rims is a 285 without wheel spacers. You can fit up to a 35x12.5 with 1/4" spacers for AT tires.

With the Fuel wheels you can fit up to a 35x12.5 as well but I'd recommend cranking the Bilsteins up to 2.8" because of the -12 offset. You'll probably be rubbing on the back of the inner fender if you don't. Otherwise get a 0 offset rather than a -12.

Thx Brandon! So with the 35x12.50 and Fuel rims with a 0 offset and bilsteins at 2.1 I wouldn't rub. I AM HESITANT TO CRANK THEM UP TO 2.8 because of wobble. Is a zero offset rim the best to go with? I also have oem flares on truck with gatorback mudflaps.

Also, do you recommend a 20x9 or a 20x10 rim? I also like the helo series 791 but they come in 20x10 with -12 offset.

A 20x9 with a 0 offset will give you the least chance of rubbing. Since you don't want to crank up the Bilsteins that's what I'd recommend. If you wanted to go to the 20x10 -12 offset wheel you'll need the Bilsteins at 2.8" for sure.

The majority of people won't have any wobble or issues with the Bilsteins at 2.8". So if that's your only reason for not cranking them up I'd reconsider to be honest.... If you like the 20x10 wheel better I wouldn't think twice about setting them at 2.8" to clear that set up.

I have a very similar question to the one you just answered. I'm looking at the Fuel Trophy wheels 20x9 with -12 offset. I have a 2011 Outdoorsman with a 2.75" lift. Will I be able to clear 35x12.50's with this set up?
