    Cant make up my mind which size to run. Decided on the
    Mickey Thompson ATZ P3 but for the life of me cant chose a size. Have a 2" HBS level and 20x9 0 offset wheels. 275 specs out as 34.2 x 11.1 with a 9" tread. The 35's spec at 34.7 x 12.5 with a 10" tread. Is the 35 gonna look that much more badass?(which is what im going for) Not a whole lot of size difference between the two and the 35's r 10lbs heavier a piece not to mention more $. MPG and $ r not an issue just trying to justify it all. Please, all opinions r welcome! I wont be able to see the two sizes in person till Saturday so trying to make up my mind before then. Let me hear em---

    Every little bit makes a big difference. Think of your truck before you leveled it. It was only 2" which isnt much at all, but how much of a difference did it make?

    I'd go with 35s.

    IMO

    You might want to double check the calculations on the 275/65r20. Those are 34.1 x 10.8. Significantly different that the 35s.

    Can you even fit a 12.5 on a stock rim?

    Calculations i have are straight from mickeys website so dunno? I can fit 12.5 on stock rim if wanted-20x9 laramie clads but went with and aftermarket wheel. Still a 20x9 which was listed as an acceptable width for the 12.5. I believe im just gonna go big and ill never wander what if---

    I know what the stock size is. Can you get a 12.5 wide tire safely on one?

    Pretty sure-had a JK with 17x8 and 35/12.50 on it-actually kinda creates a beadlock n a sense when airing down for trailing, also 35's on my 15x8 82 Chevy. Unless im just missing something I think the tire can handle being 1 1/2" past the rim on each side. Would i better off with a diff setup-i originally wanted to go 295/60 or 65 but this tire is not made n that size so up to the 12.5's

    A 35x12.50 is approved for a 9" wheel. And with the 0mm offset, you'll have no problem.

    Only the larime wheels are 20x9, the others are 20x8.

    IMO
