Will these tires fit without rubbing on 2016 SRW 4x4 3500? I had the same tire, but different size on ...

Will these tires fit without rubbing on 2016 SRW 4x4 3500? I had the same tire, but different size on my 1500 and lived them. The Transforce 295/60/R20 are aweful in the snow... BFG doesn't make the tire in the stock size, but these are an inch taller than stock.

Yes they will fit without rubbing but IMO they won't last long. I went through a set of KO2's in under 15k on my 2500. Others have complained of similar issues with wear.

BFGs are not really the right tire for a 2500/3500truck.

They are too soft. Get a Toyo AT and you'll have a better ride, double the mileage and won't risk any shaking due to the soft sidewalls of the BFG.

Also agree.....KO2s are great on 1/2 ton and smaller rigs.......google KO2s and 2500s or something along those lines and there are plenty of issues with them on the larger trucks. Some tire places require a waiver to put them on 2500+ since they get non-stop back and forth with rebalancing etc.

Oh and I wouldn't recommend Nitto either as I haven't been impressed with how they wear on any of my 3/4 ton rigs......seems previous owners always love putting Nittos on and I love when I can take them off......

I have the BFG's on my 2500 now and tow a 5'vr with it. They aren't too soft but you do need to air them up, especially in the rear, with that sort of load.

I had Toyo AT's on my MegaCab and really got good service out of them.

In answer to your question, yes that size will fit.

Go to Tire Size dot com. You can compare tire sizes, get specific dimensional information (height, width, rim size recommendations) which can be very helpful.

Man I loved Nitto Trailgrappers.. but wow, didn't get 20K out of them!


BFGs are separating for a bunch of my father in laws pipe line company in Texas. 120 or so trucks and have a good dozen separate with like 15K miles on them. They just went through all 120 trucks and got new tires because of it. hate to see that bill...

I had the previous KO's and could not stand them. So much so, I replaced them with Goodyear MTRs w/Kevlar and the MTRs were quieter! Side note, I see you're running 295/65 Nitto's on yours. Do you have a lift/level? Any rubbing?

Gotta agree with the others. Loved the BFGs on my half ton and ran many sets of them. On my 2500 I can hardly wait for them to wear out so I can replace them with something else (and that shouldn't be long).

They are wearing like crap, not impressed at all. I can't say I have had any balancing issues though. No vibrations or anything. I am just not interested in shelling out this much money for a tire that only lasts a couple years.

Level in front......a little rub I believe at full lock but nothing crazy.......

Going back down to 285s next round......with something other than Nitto and KO2s......Loved my Duratracs on my F250 Diesel but I don't think they have a good size for me in 20".....but I haven't looked lately either......Toyos need to check them out
