Just bought a 2013 Tundra Crewmax Platinum
It has 275/55/20 on it

There's a guy in town that has a SR5 that i've stopped who has 305/70/18's on a stock suspended Tundra ( said he has done nothing other than tires with no issues or rubbing)

305/70/18= 34.8x12.01x18

Would like to go with 295/65/20 Toyo AT 2 Extreme's on stock 20x 8 rims
That equates to 35.1x11.61x20

I've searched the forum and from what i've found the 305/70/18 shouldn't fit a stock truck! WTF Unless this guy i spoke with is full of shit??

If they will fit with small mods or has slight rubbing, im ok with that for now (maybe have to use a leveling kit) Don't mind losing the mud flaps or slight trimming

Input appreciated

Cheers
Neal

I think there's at least one member on this board with TRD Rock Warrior wheels - 17x8 +50 - running 315/70-17 (34.4x12.7 per BFG) on stock suspension. It works because offset.

So the offset on the 20"stock wheels are the issue? The truck i am speaking about with the 305/70/18's has stock everyday toyota wheels (5 star) What's the issue ? rubbing with suspension travel or turning?

I think the width/offset on the stock 20s is similar to the stock 18s.

That said - I'm no expert. There is at least one member here with 315/70-17 on Rock Warrior (17x8 +50) wheels, and several members are running 295/70-18 on stock TRD and TRD PRO wheels (18x8 +60). Going with lower offset aftermarket wheels causes rubbing issues because the tires stick out further and are making a bigger arc when moving through steering range of travel. Sticking with stock wheels might be the ticket to getting it to work.

All trucks are slightly different. Some have to remove mud flaps. Some have to massage the inner fender liner. Some just fit.

I think going 35+ on tires might be pushing it. Maybe compromise on the 295/60-20 (33.9") and you'll probably have a better fit. Or consider a small lift for the front end - 2" would help a lot.

Ask if your tire shop will test fit the tires before you buy. Try the big ones, if it works, great. If not, try the next size down. Repeat until you're happy.
