lol i would but theres only 2 other places in town that carry nittos and they are like 200 bucks more. i think that if i go in there and tell him the exact size he could do it, but i didnt know what the metric size for a 35/12.50 was so he asked the guy on the phone. if a MT that big can fit ik an AT can

I had a hard time convincing the shop here as well. I just kept telling him "I have seen them on identical trucks, they will fit, trust. Order them now please."
When I brought the truck back to install them, they told me "No way those are going to fit without rubbing." lol

its between the 325/60, 325/65, and the 295/70s. i was lookin at the 305/60 and they are almost the same as the 325/60s. only difference is the 305s have a little less tread depth and they are about a half inch shorter and thinner. looks like theyd both be called 33x12.50s. i dont want the truck to look completely stuffed but i dont want a tiny tire either. if im spendin the money on new tires i want bigger meats

Yeah I was just looking at the 295s as well. Discount doesn't carry them though, blah. Stockers are 32x11 +- .2" or so per different tire brand.

If your not looking for a mud tire, look at the Hankook DYNAPRO ATM's. Its probably my next tire, theres alot of oil trucks running them right now that I know of and they been happy with them in the snow/mud/rain. The price doesn't seem to be half bad either...

i like the looks of the nittos and ive seen both in person. nitto has more of a modern stylish/street look and the atm is more like an average sidewall. plus ive heard better bout the terra grap and more people seem to have it

Great tires! I run some on my company vehicle. I believe they have a 50,000 mile warranty too.
