Tall and Skinny

I have a 2014 RAM 2500 4x4. I'm looking for a 35"-36" tall x 10" wide Aggressive , good riding on the H-way , quiet 10 ply tire , is there any such tire ? I have BFG A/T's now on 20" wheels but will change wheel size if needed . Don't like them anyway ! My wheels now are 10" wide , if I changed to a 8" wide wheel would a 12" wide tire fit and wear even ? Thanks for any advice .

Aggressive, quiet and good riding. Like fast, cheap and good in service, pick two, you can't get all three.

Most manufacturers say 8" min on a rim, but it's all tire dependent in a 12" wide tire.

i wanted something similar on my DMax and ended up with the Toyo A/T II "Xtreme" in the 285/75-17 size (34"x11"). they're fairly aggressive for an all terrain and ride smooth enough

I don't think I've ever seen a 35" tire that skinny. There might be an option for 19.5s in that size, but you won't find a light truck tire that tall and skinny. As far as rim width, lots of people put 12.5s on 8 inch rims.

Here you go

The closest thing to what you are asking is what 4runner kid mentioned. The weight rating is pretty dismal though.

Q78's are basically a 35.5X11, but you're not going to find much in the way of options that fit your description. Bias TSL's and Ground Hawgs come to mind.

255/100/16 Michelins. Basically the holy grail for the land cruiser crowd but almost impossible to get.

285/70r19.5 will be everything you want and more.


Gavan, Ive got 285/70r17s on a stock 08 f350 dually and I know a 35x12.50 will fit as well. Most od the newer trucks have large wheel wells.

275/70R18

34” best I’ve found in a toy m55

its a stock size so affordable the tread is pretty durable. fairly happy with the wear and handling snow and ice no issue. most other larger sizes have a softer compound stock sizes tend to have more options and harder compounds for longer life kinda like the old 235/85R16 michelins the commercial fleets demand longer life span than the aftermarket

Toyo makes a 285/75R18 in an mt/rt/at. That's what I plan on running for the same effect. Basically a 35x10.5018.

20x10 is a large and wide wheel.........20" Load E rated tires will be very stiff

I think BFG KOs are junk for a DD/Tow Rig

I thought you were already running 35/12.50R20s

Why needing the change?

Why do you want something more narrow than a 12.50?

I'm running the toyo AT's in 285/75R18, they fit fine stock but a little tight with chains on the front so I added a leveling kit. The leveling kit also allow me to run my airbags up to 80psi and keep level with the camper.

Old school, bias, 9.00 - 16
Usually 36" tall, and tread is less than 9" wide, widest part of tire is 9. Can run 'em on a 7" wide wheel.
Usually aggressive tread, loud as hell and ride like steel wagon wheels.
Hard to find.

Doesn't quite fit the quiet, smooth ride he was looking for.

9.00r16 is the same as 255/100r16. There are radial military applications available.

Size wise they fit the bill, long lasting tires as well. I can only imagine how bad a 7,000lb 3/4ton pickup would ride with 25,500lbs of tire capacity under it though. You'd be peeing blood within 5 miles of getting them mounted up.
