    Default Difference between 275/60/R20,305/55/20 & 35 12.50-20

    I have a 04 1500 5.7 4wd Slt Quad Cab and I was wondering what size tire I should get next time around, the truck has New Shocks and bushings not really looking to do a lift kit at this time. For the most part the truck sits kinda level slight rake to the front. Thanks

    P.S Leaning toward BFG or Nitto.

    How much difference is there really looks wise and size between the 305/55/20 & 35 12.50-20, They both are about the same price, which would be the better one to go with?

    35x12.50 is ALOT of tire for a stock height truck.
    The 305/55 will be about 2" shorter and .5" narrower. It all depends how "stuffed" you want the fenders to look.

    I don't want them filled right up, I am leaning toward the 305.

    Well I know I asked this question a while ago But I finally replaced my tires, I ended up just going with a Stock size 275/60/20. I went with a Toyo Open County AT 3. So far I am very happy with them I have about 5 Miles on them lol. If I was going to change the rims I probably would have gone bigger but for the amount I use this truck I just didn't go that route.

    Toyo makes a very good tire. Had some Open Country MTs for like 60k+ miles and sold them off with about 1/3 tread. Crazy what tires can do now
