Default New Tire Fitment

Alright, I'm gonna lay it all out here and hope to get some responses and sound advice...

My truck is a 2006 SLT 4x4 Thunder Road edition. It just turned over 58,000 miles. The Cooper Zeon LTZs in 275/60R20 are on their last legs and I am also going to level it with the Bilstein 5100s, front and back.

This truck is driven less than 5,000 miles a year and I do not off road with it. A muddy dirt road with some potholes is as crazy as it gets.

I am leaning towards the Mastercraft MXTs in 305/55R20 or the 35x12.5s. Now I have done a lot of research and homework on this and I know that there is no way that I can run these tires on my stock wheels without clearance issues on the upper control arms. I will have to use hubcentric spacers/adapters. I have researched that as well and it seems that the Bora ones from motorsport-tech.com seem to be a favorites. I am planning on also installing some pocket style Bushwacker flares on as well. It says that they sit out 2".

The Mastercrafts have a section width of 12.5. The Zeons have a section width of 10.8. SO, the new tires will be approximately 7/8" wider on either side than the Coopers. Add a 1" spacer and my tires will now be sitting approximately 1 7/8" further out while giving me ample clearance of the control arm. Now if I add the Bushwhackers at 2" wide, I am thinking/hoping that the setup should look pretty sharp...

OK, sorry of all this info and rambling. What I am wondering is if anyone here is running a similar setup and if so, how is it working? Any pics? Tire reviews? Friendly advice? 305s or 35s?

The truck needs to be inspected by the end of September but I want o pull the trigger on everything now and get it ready. Any pics, advice, warnings, etc would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
