Quick Tire Question

Hey Guys, i'm a new member here and have a few questions. I have a 2008 F250 Crew Cab Diesel with factory 20" rims. I'm looking at a set of Nitto Terra Grapplers but am wondering if a 295/60R20 tire will fit without a levelling kit on stock rims. Nitto shows these tires as being 34.45"x12.36". Yes, I did a search first.

you should be fine, the factory 20s measure about 34-34.5in...you might rub your control arms a little but that aint a big deal

Welcome to TDG!

I don't know where you got your numbers, but those calculate to 33.94" x 11.61". They will fit with no problem on stock rims and won't rub anything. Hell, they're a hair smaller than your stock tires.

I got the sizes from the nitto site:

http://nittotire.com/#index.tire.terragrappler.sizes


The main reason I liked the Nitto's was because of the price. The procomps seem to be quite a bit more money. I don't want to have to lift it as it's a work truck as well and my staff uses it quite often. I also plow with it in the winter and want something a bit more aggressive in the snow as well.
