So I have always wanted to know what this setup would look like. I’ve never been able to find 35s on the stock OR wheels, until tonight because I just got done mounting them.

This thread is for anyone else that might be curious.

Important: I purposely adjusted my UCAs to add a sketchy amount of camber so the tires would clear them. This was only to creep my way home from where I mounted the tires. This will be completely fixed when my wheel spacers come on Sunday. I won’t be driving the truck until then.

How wide are those factory wheels- 7.5”? Have to run pretty low on street to keep solid wear patch?

They are 7” and it is recommended to run 7.5” or wider for 35s.

I will overcome whatever side effects come my way from doing this, like the wear pattern.

I was just curious what pressure you’ll need to keep em even. I ran 12.5 on a 7” wheel. Poor mans beadlock lol. I ran em high on the street because corners got ate up on the trails so balanced out.

Makes sense. I will learn as I go. To be honest I’m not THAT concerned about this because I abuse them off-road anyway and really end up shortening their lifespan.

Here are some scientific comparisons.
285/75r16 BFG KO2 vs 315/75r16 BFG KM3.

Oh that’s not too bad at all then. I think I was like 22psi to run a complete contact patch. But ran higher for reasons above. Old Toyota steelies make the best poormans since the beads are so steep.

If I switch off these wheels I do plan on going to those steelies.

Corrections. The tires 315/75R16 BGG KM3 need a rim width range of 8-11", per info from TireRack.com. A rim with 7" width is way too narrow. Been thinking about trying something with just of .5" difference, from specs needed and the rimes I have (same as yours). An 1" narrower rim is too much. It seems that it shows on the tires, how bulgy they are. Thanks for the info, do. A local tire dealer did not even want to install tires on rims that are barely .5" narrower, so nevermind 1" difference.

To be honest, i have to respectfully disagree. People have been running 35's and bigger on 7-7.5's for quite some time with success, and on non beadlocks. While companies may not recommend it, its merely a liability concern. They arent called poormans beadlocks for no reason. one of the biggest reasons its advised to go with a wider wheel is due to the fact that tred wear will not be even unless ran at lower PSI.

I gues only if it’s strictly a weekend truck for offroading only then ?

Yeah im with you for sure. Going by recommended actions, you shouldn’t alter your trucks suspension at all and stick with oem components elsewhere as well.
It’s a toy. Do what you want to make it work. Have fun.

Just wondering what your lift higth is? I’ve got a DCLB and think it doesn’t look very “balanced” with a 3 inch on 285s and yours looks amazing.
