I have a 2010 2wd with a 2.5" leveling it i was wondering if a 35x12.50 will fit with my stock SE wheels anyone know?? i went to discount tire and they said they wouldn't mount them because the wheel was too narrow but they said someone else might they just would not

That's about the max width I'd go on that rim... I'd be more worried about the height. They *might* fit, but it'll take a LOT of cutting. Wait for norcal to chip in haha :D

Is is possible? Yes, but just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done. I've seen it done here before a while back but it took some serious cutting and modifications to get them to clear. You'd loose a lot of your suspension in doing this and you may burn through tires faster than you want with them being too wide for your stock wheels.

Why not go with a 295/70R18? You'll still have some of modifications to do and they'll still look huge on the truck. They are also approved for your stock 18x8" wheels so your local Discount Tire store should be able to mount and balance them for you as well.

You should have a lot of coilbucket contact too, the max spacer for a 2010 is 1.5"... Go advanced, there's a button that says manage attachments

I have a 07 2wd se with a 3" leveling kit and a 3" body lift and I'm barely fitting 35x12.50 mud graps. I had to do some mods to get it to fit so yea pics would be awsome lol

^Stock wheels fit a lot different than aftermarket wheels, their high offset helps keep your wheel and tire tucked into the deepest part of your fenders. It should be easier to fit a 35" tire on the stock wheels over an aftermarket wheel because of this but this doesn't come without sacrifice. Even if you hack the truck up to make them fit the stock wheels are too narrow for a 12.50" wide tire. The tire will wear out quick and has a higher potential for failure.

So what would be a good size to go with? I want a wider tire than the stock 165/70-18's. I would like an aggressive looking tire like the trail grappler.

Sounds like BS, but I think it's possible. Although maybe his alignment wasn't set correctly after the leveling kit was installed. This gives some additional lift as well as additional tire wear. At $1k + for tires, it's worth getting an alignment. Also, if dag88's caster is set so the wheels are more forward than most Titans, additional pinch weld and mud guard clearance will exist.

Due to variance, dag88's coil buckets might be welded on lower so there would be a little more lift than typical. Also, tire tolerances are pretty large. It's possible to be fine now but rub after the tires get rotated.

The '08+ Titans have longer coil springs, so stock an '10 2wd will be taller than the '04-'07 2wd. Some older Titans have cleared the LT315/70R17 BFG A/T KO with just a correct sized leveling kit, and they are 34.5" diameter where the BFG M/T KM2 is only slightly taller at 34.8". A narrow rim will pull the sidewalls in by 0.2" for ever 1/2" smaller than the spec sheet measuring rim. The KM2 are 12.5" on a 10" rim, so on an 8" rim, they'd pull in to only 11.7" wide at the sidewall. The lugs at the transition from sidewall to tread are larger on most M/T's though.

The '10 2wd can take a 2" leveling kit, the newer 4x4's have the 1.5" recommendation. Pics at full lock would be nice.

All true. But the reason people get away with the wider tires on the narrower rims and often have good tread wear too, is the broad range of inflation availble, especially when used on a 1/2 ton.

Even with our full rated Titan load, we don't need as much air pressure as a 1 ton fully loaded. So when running a wide LT at 40 psi or so, the tread isn't higher in the middle and uneven wear doesn't happen. Some Bozo that runs them at the maximum will definitely get more center wear.

The actual load capacity at 40 psi might be lower than with a properly sized rim, but IMO they are still fine for a 1/2 ton. Also, many of the larger LT tires make claims about their toughness when aired down to 10 psi or even less, [for off road], so I believe most will be fine at the 40 psi daily driver type pressures. There are many guys running the 33" LT325/60R18 Terra Grapplers on Titans, and I've never heard of any blowouts or failures not related to an external input.

So what would be a good size to go with? I want a wider tire than the stock 165/70-18's. I would like an aggressive looking tire like the trail grappler.

My suggestion it if you are staying with stock gears, stay under 34". If I had 18's I would run one of these ... BFG A/T KO 33.7" LT305/60R17 or Toyo M/T in a 33.6" LT275/70R18, (with BT gears). For any stock geared Titan, the 33" LT295/65R18 GoodYear DuraTrac, the 33" LT325/60R18 Kumho KL78 A/T, or the 33x12.5R18LT Toyo M/T. Toyo M/T's and Nitto Trail Grapplers are very tough but also very heavy, so with gas prices what they are, the DuraTracs would be the likely pick.

Does the width cause a problem? I was thinking of going with the 325/60-18's either in the nitto dune or terra grapplers.

Thank you for the answer by the way. I've looked at countless forum post on this topic and couldnt ever seem to get the answer I wanted. Between you and Greg(if he ever calls me back) I think I might be ok. Lol

Do 35x12.5's on the stock wheels fit? All day.

Did I align the truck after I leveled it? Duh.

Did I have to buy/install cam bolts for a proper alignment? No. (That why there are limitations when leveling)

Did I give it a little snip in the pinch weld area? Absolutely.

Do I rub the frame during full lock just a tiny bit every once in a while? Yes I do. No biggie.

Does my truck actually see off road? More than you could imagine. I drive the hell out of it.

Do I have uneven tire wear? No I do not. 46psi up front, 40psi in the rear with rotations every 5k miles.

Figure out what you want to do. Research what you want to do. Be confident that what you want to do will work. BAM!

If my 315/70/17 duratracs ever show up I will take some pics with a mini lift. I suspect I'm going to need to do some cutting at the pinch weld.

So if I take my stock 08 SE 4x4 Titan and I wanted to put 35s on. What is step by step what I would need to do? Because I am so confused
4" bracket lift kit minimum. That's all you need to know.
