Thanks. For those interested. This is on 2" bilstein front struts, 1" rear blocks, no spacers. No rubbing, rides awesome. Quiet. Now to see how they do in snow.

Great looking setup and beautiful truck! I think that's the perfect size for our trucks and what I intend to go with when mine need replacement. I like the Nitto Terras, Cooper Zeons, and Hankook Dynapro ATM but the Toyo Open Country AT is a good bit cheaper. I don't know why I'm looking at prices though. At the rate I drive my truck the stock sized Coopers will last another five years minimum, lol.

Rep for the pics!

Thanks! Yes i agree on the size. My truck is a daily driver, the family car, soon to pull a camper, general pavement beater. It has to be functional and maintain a similar to stock setup. I would never dare go any taller or bigger tire wise. They only reason i bought 4wd is because i live in the rockies and wanted it for winter driving.
The tires you listed were the same on my list,plus i also looked at the original BF A/Ts too. The only thing that stopped me from ordering the open countries was i had read several reviews that quality control had slacked and some tires had surfaced with issues out there. Plus years ago my father ran the Nittos on his Z71 and got 65k out of them. Were good to him so i figured id give them a shot. Like i said. Now just to see how they do this winter.

I use my truck pretty much just like you. I would actually like a larger mud tire but the honest truth is that it would be just for the looks. For what I do an A/T tire makes much more sense and doesn't sacrifice the power-robbing weight or the pavement driving dynamics, not to mention the A/Ts are obviously cheaper. Please keep us updated as to how they perform. The Hankook is actually a little more expensive so whenever the time does come I will likely go with the Nittos or Coopers.

I went with the Nitto Trail Grapplers 295/55 R20 on the original rims. I did have to use a 1/4" spacer cuz it was rubbing due to the wall tread that sticks out on the back of the tire. Not that noisy on the road compared to mud grapplers. I leveled with performex 2.5" still rakes a little bit forward but most levels I've seen do. I drive on caliche and back roads for my work and this is my daily driver. MPG did suffer but I didn't get a truck to try to save gas. Big difference in ride from my quad cab '02.

Very clean primo spagetti, looks good ! I just had the Trail Grapplers installed this morning on stock wheels (295/60/20) but did not need spacers, no rubbing with only a 2" level kit from Truxxx. I can't understand why some people need spacers and some don't with similar set-ups, it's very confusing???
