    hey folks, bout to order my 2019 TRD Pro and have a tire question.

    I’m ordering Fuel Vector 18x9 with a +20mm offset and 35x12.50 Nitto ridge grapplers.

    I understand that with trimming plastic and mud flap removal this will work just fine.

    My question is for offroad. Anyone running this setup on stock pro suspension? How’s it do Offroad?

    Edit: I also may be using the icon Rebounds with 25mm offset and 17” instead of 18”.

    I don’t have that setup myself, but @TRON ran that size on PRO shocks for awhile. @boardude ran 295/70’s on the same setup, not too far off from a true 35.

    You may need a little more offset with the 35s otherwise you'll probably be trimming quite a bit. I ran +12 offset wheels with my 295s and still had to trim.

    May want to look into the coach builder shims to help too

    Might want to measure the brakes if your'e thinking of dropping to 17". 18" is tight enough on mine that I wouldn't be able to run 17".

    do you have an aftermarket brake setup? My understanding 17's will fit over stock brakes

    Maybe a 315/70r18 or 17 would be a safer bet. I want to beef it up as much as possible, but it’s going to get some serious use offroad

    I'm running a spare set of 295-70-18 on my truck w/ Method Roost 18x9 +18 ( version 1 ) and wheeled it this past weekend with @Erichudgins with NO issue and I'm 2wd. I just have a CMC on the front on Fox C/O's, etc.

    295/70 or 305/70 is a good compromise as you can fit a full size spare underneath the bed and you do need a full size spare if doing serious off roading. The 35" will sit in your bed and eat half the space.

    I saw the coach builder. Looks like good stuff. I’m trying really hard to keep everything stock but bumpers, tires, wheels.

    Really what I am after here is who is riding stock TRD pro suspension, 35/12.50r18 on a wheel offset between 20-30. After you have removed the mud flaps and trimmed what plastic necessary are you still rubbing at full bump/full lock?

    A true 35 will more than likely rub at full lock on the skid plate and the cab mount with those wheels. I'd be in for someone to post up TRUE 35, no cut, trim or removal of the skid plate with pics to prove it.

    Right, I’d imagine it would be a total no go at full bump then too. That’s the hairy part. When you are completely compressed and have to turn the wheel.

    So 295/70R18 sounds like a good bet, yeah? With a 20mm offset

    No, I have the TSS package though. I don't know if that upgraded brakes or not.

    Yes sir! Going straight line heck you can throw a 37 on there and say "yay look at me no rubbin!" then when everyone leaves the parking lot, start the turning dance! LOL! You'll be close to you UCA, maybe too close for your personal comfort but yes its been done before on certain tires, less sidewall decor the better.

    Look at this scenario on mine, 37x12.50x17 in the front and worn down 35's in the rear.

    I run LT285/70R-18 Nitto Exo Grapplers on OE wheels with no problems. You could probably get a LT285/75R-18 to fit on stock wheels.

    Running 325/65r18 +12 offset with the coachbuilder kit. Still have to do the BMC, and had to massage the front bumper liner even after the spacer kit. Took it out, flexed it pretty good, had to go back and work the bumper liner over again. Anything is possible with the right tools!

    that's ultimately my concern with 35's. Full compression and turning. I think i'm going to make the same move as you and go with 295/70's

    305/70r17. (34x12?) Stock pro suspension. RW wheels 17x8 +50 offset. Just removed the front flaps. Not sure If I even needed to.
    35's will fit easy.
