tire size recommendation

I think I've decided to go w/ Nitto terra grappler but not sure which size. I've got stock suspension & don't really want any taller tire but I would like a little beefier look w/out sticking out & looking stupid. Stock is 275-65-20. I think they come 295-60 and also 305-55. Can anybody that is running these help? Also, if anyone knows bad news about this, please chime in. Thanks!!!

Those will be good tires. Just FYI, most aftermarket tires (Nitto AT especially) look much beefier than stock tires, even with the same size. Their actual dimensions are bigger than the stock tires. You'll be happier with whichever you choose.

Your selection of tires:

Stock - 34.0 x 10.8
295's - 33.9 x 11.6
305's - 33.2 x 12.0

I've seen the 325-60 on a 08 f250 w/ leveling kit, they rub & look bigger than I want.

I had the 275/65/20 and they looked narrower than the stock goodyears. Also I only got about 20,000 miles out of them with mostly highway miles and pulling trailers. But, they were very quiet tires.
