Sorry in advance if this has been answered a million times, but after some searching I did not find anything...so here goes:

I just got a new 2008 Titan Pro-4x that comes with 275/70-18s which are 33.15" tall on a 8"x20" wheel with a 6x5.5 Bolt Pattern and what seems to be a 23mm Offset. I am going to junk the crap OEM Rugged Trails for either some Nitto Terra Grapplers or Cooper STTs, but I just got a set of Silverado SS 20" wheels which are 8.5"x20" with the same 6x5.5 Bolt Pattern and 22 mm offset.

So...the wheels are basically the same but a 1/2" wider and 1 mm different offset...

My question is, Should I either get the Hankook Ventus ST-RH06 275/55-20s which are 31.9" tall or the 305/50-20s which are 32" tall. I realize the 305s are closer to the OEM height, but will the 305s stick out past the fenders or will they fit nicely? I realize they won't rub b/c they are shorter, but I don't want that stupid look where the tires stick out past the fenders.

Thanks so much in advance.:cheers:

I want to put 305/55-20 Nittos on my 2008 Titan 20s, but it's not clear whether they will clear everything. Clearances are tight on this truck.

Has anyone done this yet?

Here is some help fellas::cheers:


What the SS wheels you have choosen a safe size would be a 285.55.20. they should fit without problems. the 305.55.20's might clear just fine but I would suggest test fitting. The only problem area you might have and I stress "might" would be at full lock when turning right and left. Terra Grapplers are a great tire and would be an excelent choice. I would also suggest BFG AT KO's or Cooper Zeon LTZ's. in either size. Here is a helpfull link that shows all the upgraded sizes that are relatively easy to put on your 2008 Titan. (relatively because offset is always a contributing factor

*note BFG has a $50 rebate I see. :)


As for anyone else that want to fit a 305.55.20 aim for a 20x9 or 20x9.5 with an offset in the range of 18mm *** Always test fit when upsizing.

Go with 305/55/20s!!! You'll be glad you did, 92TripleBlack has been running them w/o any fitment issues that I have seen. I'm running 325/60-18s which pan out to the same size but a tiny bit wider and I love them. Most 33's will fit on stock height with stock offset. 35's will require a leveling kit.

Here's mine with the PRG Mini-Lift although the lift is not required.

I haven't seen any either, I've been really curious about them as well but I didn't want to fork out an extra $100/tire just to see what they look like. $1030.00 was pricey enough for me the way it is. :D I'll look around as soon as maintenance is done on the other sites.

Hey guys,
Sorry Pops I just read the PM on the other titan forum. Yes I have 35" Cooper STT with only a PRG leveling kit. It is an 05 4x4. I did have to do the pinch weld mod. I cut my stock mud flaps to work. I use to have pictures of a few other Titans with 35s and a leveling kit, I will look for them. I have put 5000 miles on the truck since adding the tires and leveling kit. I have noticed a decrease in take off speed. If you want to spin you can, but tires are too expensive. It has rubbed while turning and compressing the suspension fast- like hitting a curb pulling into a business off of a busy street. I have had no other problems. I got 14-15 mpg before and I get the same now. If you have any other questions I will try to help.
