oem wheels with larger tire pic request


Recommended Posts

hey all, I know I've seen different post about wheel/tire combos throughout the forum, but was wondering if I could possibly get some pics of what larger than stock tires you all have went with on oem 20" wheels.  Trying to decide what size I want to go with.  Thanks in advance for any replies.

There's only a few on YouTube that show bigger tires on factory rims. Most have lift kits or leveling kits installed and bigger rims. From what I've found a 35x12.5x20 will fit on factory rims and no lift or level. Thats what I'm going with next.

that is my number 1 size pick so far Mike.  Also considering 295/65/20 as well, but would prefer the the slightly wider 35.  Was hoping to see some pics of the 35x12.5's installed.

Does that size fit on GMC Sierra Denali 2017?

Not sure, it was a 2022 truck I seen it on but can't imagine it's any different. I also had a 2019 and there was not much difference. I think the big key is factory rims as apposed to aftermarket wide rims.

should fit the previous body style as well.  They would have had the same size tire with stock 20's too. 

 

Nobody is going to chime in with some pics of their truck?  I know there are some members with larger tires on their stock rims around here.

Sorry for being late to the party...

 

I installed 295/65/20 Yokohama Geolander AT-XD (G017) tires on my 2022 Silverado 2500 Custom. Truck is at stock height front and rear. NO cranking of torsion bars or anything.

 

They fit great, no rubbing! Looking at the Geolander AT-XD tires specifically.... 295/65/20's are 35.1" in diameter with a tread width of 9.7". The 35x12.5/20 are 34.5" with a tread width of 10.3". For reference, BFG KO2's in 295/65/20 are 35.1" diameter with a tread width of 9.8". The 35x12.5/20 are 34.5" in diameter with a tread with of 11.1"

 

Another thing to look at is load ratings. For reference, on the Yokohamas, the 295 had a max load of 4,080lbs @ 80psi. The 35x12.5 had a max load of  3,195lbs @ 65psi. Just more things to consider, especially if towing.

 

I have always been very particular in the tire I chose for all my vehicles. In the 35x's there are tons of options. The 295's the selection is significantly less. I have run BFG KO2, Goodyear Duratrac, Falken Wildpeaks AT3, Firestone Destination AT. They are all great tires for certain purposes. After a ton of research on forums and YouTube (for which there was very little), I went with the Yokohamas AT-XD. I went slightly taller and narrower with the 295's. I wanted to fill the wheel well as tight as I could without rubbing. The 295's also gave a little more room on the UCA in the event I upgrade UCAs in the future. And I got the highest load rating.

 

Hope this helps.IMG_7181a.thumb.jpg.aae96fd93d8edc5fe170abff055ffd56.jpgIMG_7182a.thumb.jpg.a81d44aea476a2762048a37f09f34e40.jpgIMG_7183a.thumb.jpg.38d5ecd3d86d083882f256dc7f6588c2.jpgIMG_7185a.thumb.jpg.728439783deb60e104c05ff052a63832.jpgIMG_7188a.thumb.jpg.9360359c94365bc742a84fad2dafc73c.jpgIMG_7212a.thumb.jpg.a3877568d609541694fc8ba393df8505.jpg

thanks for the reply Matt, great info and same model/color as mine as well.  I hadn't consider Yokohama's yet.  Was looking at Nitto Ridge Grapplers and Toyo Open Country R/T and Cooper Discover AT2 XLT.

Those look great.  How's the ride and road noise? Did MPG's take a big hit?

There is a slight hum right now that comes from the tires. I only have about 200 miles on them, so they really aren't even broken in yet. I did read one review that the tires do hum initially, but it goes away. Time will tell.

 

As for the ride, they actually feel a bit softer than the stock tires. Understandable considering there is more sidewall and the tread is 20/32" thick. They are marginally less responsive, but again, I attribute that to the thick tread and the tread design.

 

I do not have enough miles on these tires to make a comment on the MPG. I can only assume with each tire weighing 15lbs more each, along with the taller tire and more aggressive tread (i.e. more rolling resistance), I will see a MPG hit. What it is, I don't know yet.

Those are all good tires. Pick a tire that best suits your needs. When I was choosing a tire, my focus was mainly packed snow and slushy snow performance as I live in Denver, CO. But.... I also wanted sand and mud performance as we do a lot of lake camping and a good heavy duty tire that was designed for the heavier 3/4 and 1-ton pickups. I know, my list was quite extensive. Over the years and many tires, I found the more closed-block designs, specifically the KO2, there was no good passage for the slush to get out of the tread blocks. So I would be sliding around on top of the slush.  Wet performance was not the best either. They did do very well with deep and packed snow. I loved the Duratracs in slush and deep snow, but didn't do well in pretty much every other category. The Falken Wildpeak AT3's are amazing tires. They did better than the KO2s in every category. The AT4s are just hitting the market now and the reviews are saying they are even better than the AT3's. I looked at all of the new RT tires, but I was concerned about the packed snow and slush performance due to the tread design. Especially when they wear down. The Yokohamas are new and checked every box I was looking for, at least on paper. 

 

So all of that being said, do your research. Each tire is designed a certain way to achieve a certain performance. Choose the tire that fits your needs the best.

Have you seen or hear of the BFG HD-Terrain? Curious is anyone has tried those. Also seeing that the KO2's have now been replaced with the KO3's

I was really leaning towards the BFG HD-Terrains. I almost went with the BFGs. The reason why I went with the Yokohama AT-XD's was for their snow and packed snow performance, which is very important to me since I live in Denver and travel to the mountains with deep snow, packed snow and slush. The HD-Terrains didn't look like they would do as well in snow since there is not much siping along the tread face and the tread blocks are very large. There are only a small handful of reviews on those tires. And even less with actual ownership reviews. You can't go wrong with those IMHO.
