    oh I know they'll fit. i ran 35's on my truck on stock rims and they did not scrub at all. I had already trimmed the inner plastic from running the 20x10's & 33's previosly though. I dunno why I thought it was a 34" tire. I doubt I will be rolling those then unless I have to. I like 33's & up

    Just make sure you run some Toyo M/T or Toyo A/Ts.
