Woot Excited now!!!! New Grapplers on the way 275/65/20

Well after much debate and searching on here and and searching some more, calling tire shops, finally pulled the trigger on some Nitto Terra Grapplers in a 275/65/20. Ive always been a BFG fanboy (4 sets of KOs) and when i bought this truck it had 325/60R20 BFGs on it. They are entirely too big for the truck without aftermarket wheels and smack the UCA and frame.

So after looking and looking and ALMOST pulling the trigger on some 305/55/20s, I read they they do rub, I just didnt want any more rubbing! Then i read about a few guys putting some 275/65/20s on which are the equiv of a 34"X11" tire. and right now I have basically a 35.5" x 13" tire. Not to mention they are cheaper! I was super excited when every review said they didnt rub. This is my first set of Nittos, I hope they dont let me down :/ I sure hope they are right, they go on tomorrow on this truck

according to this guy they do and I have those exact wheels

http://www.f150forum.com/f4/2006-scr...pplers-126386/



and here are some of the size im getting. I think they fit truck better because they are less wide and taller



See how they look better than a 305?

You'll love the Grapplers. Mine have 20k on them, if not more, and they look like brand new tires.

Love my Nito tires, have a summer set of trail grapplers 295/70/17 on incubus crawlers and a winter set on aluminum cheapies, the terra grapplers 285/70/17 took two trips to the shop before they got them balanced right the trail grapplers have a lot of meat on them.

Lol id say!! Ueah i had to sell the ranger cause our first child is on the way (due this week :D) and we need to have two vehicles that could haul the baby safely (back seat). So i bought a Maroon 04 SuperCrew. Was unhaopy with the truck so I sold it, made $1600 bucks on it. Then found this beauty on f150online for $15000 and picked her up with 73k miles (dealerships wanted 18-20k for the same truck). Had to replace a few tbings, but she is soooo nice. Same gas mileage as ranger, more room, more towing, etc!!!
