Wide wheels, huge negative offset, and stretched tires is by far the gayest trend I've ever seen, so many good looking trucks out there with fcking ugly ass wheels.


1.7 is garbage. And you're losing a lot of contact patch with an 8inch wide rim.

the STT Pro speed rating wont be any more of a worry that stretching those tires on 12" rims
I plan on going to a better offset wheel but for now I wanted to see if I could get away with the 420s on what rims I have lol I'm not too worried however I see a different rim setup in the near future

Don't come on here bragging about a 1.7. Your rim is too small for your tire, just as bad as these people stretching their tires. I've cut a 1.55 with stock turbo on 305/50/20. You have some work to do.

Here is my problem. Just because you dont like the look of his truck doesnt mean you can tell him his rim is too wide for a 305. If you look at the Nittos website you can run a 305/40/22 on a 22x12. They tell you what size rim you can run, an 11 inch would be optimal but 12 will be just fine.

Now I hate the tires sticking out looking like a mexican low rider but his tire will not be "stretched". for all these people running a rim too small for their tire is just as dumb and dangerous as a stretched tire. Wheres all the internet warriors when people are asking about putting 315's on a stock rim? Oh wait theyre okay with that look so its totally acceptable.

Somebody put some factual information (not your opinion) in here or shut the **** up.

I'm not gonna tear someone a new one just because I don't like something they've done. We are grown freaking men. See something you don't like or a trend you find dumb? Great. But guys tearing into other guys on these forums is EXACTLY why people shy away from them. We come here to get info. 99% of the time at least. Not opinions.

Manufacture says it's ok. Doesn't matter what opinions everyone has. You want it. Do it.

I think stretched tires on wide wheels looks dumb. I also think the 5 spoke LML wheel is fugly. Now everyone can hate on me.

FWIW, I ran a 305/50R20 on a 9" wide wheel, and it wore the center out of the tread in about 20-25k miles on two completely different brands of tire. I stepped it down to a 285/55, and it wears perfect now. No, the tire was not run over-inflated. My personal opinion is a 12" wide wheel is a little too wide for a 305, but that's more of a looks opinion than it is a safety opinion. I'm sure it is perfectly safe if the manufacturer lists that tire fitting that size wheel.

Glad this guy was able to get all of the pics he was looking for of a 4" lifted truck with 12 wide wheels and 305 tires on this thread.....

IMHO it looks weird when guys lower their lift kits down and put 420s on any size wheel/tire. As much as you might not want to, do the correct thing if you are looking for performance and remove the lift. If not maybe look into Terra Grapplers or such in a bigger tire. Lavon ran the Terras both times he won DPC and they did everything they needed to!

It's not an e rated tire but it has a higher load rating than some D's I've compared it to so it has an acceptable load rating, Now as far as rim width I used a half ton rim that is the same dimensions and picked out a 305/50 for it and nitto says it's ok to run, so in every aspect of the tire on that wheel it is safe according to nitto, so no you are wrong.

Well I was wrong, it's a 20x8.5 +40mm offset and my adaptors put me at a -10mm
