Like the title says, wondering if anyone has run that size with or without level kit? The diameter is an inch larger than stock, I don't know if they will rub.

Awesome, thanks for the feedback.

Omarf4-that looks great, now I have no doubts this is the size I'm going with.

Can anyone report on how many MPG's they lost with the larger heavier tire?

2 mpg hit....but worth it...it's an HD tire...I tow a lot and 99% pavement...1% gravel roads....peace of mind and much stronger sidewall.

I'm running the 275/65R20 BFG KO2 with no rubbing on my Big Horn. I have just the 2" lift in the front, not sure if it would rub without them.

I'm curious if you can run this size with the stock air suspension and no lift? I heard that you can somehow lock the trucks with air suspension into "Off Road 2?" True statement? Anyone know if there is a write up somewhere on this?

I am currently riding on the stock 20 inch wheels with 275 65 20 Nitto Terra Grappler. I have the air suspension and did swap the links front to back for a 2 inch lift. I have no rubbing issues. I did put the links back to stock just to confirm that I could still Drive at stock height without rubbing and again, no issues. 20160304_175950.jpg 20160304_175928.jpg

I run Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO 2 in a 275/65/20 with the stock air suspension. I get a slight rub at full lock of the wheel. For me this only happens when going low speeds while turning around. Any other times, even when loaded or in aero mode it never rubs.

Atm, that looks clean! Did you plastidip your wheels?

Also, can you explain more about this "swapping the links?"

Thank you. Yes, I plasti dipped them last week. I had to touch up after getting the tires. I need to get black lug nuts too as those will not hold up long term if tires are being rotated, etc.

Someone else asked the same question in my thread. See link below... there is another link in that thread and plentry of good info on the forum. Hope it helps!

Forgot to ask: what's the offset on your OEM wheels? I'm leaning towards getting the adjustable air ride links and either running a 275/65R20 (like you), or a 35x12.50R20. I would probably need to rock a wheel with negative offset, correct?

I am not sure about the offset of the stock wheels but typically stock wheels are somewhere between a 0 to +5 offset I believe. I believe you would need new wheels or a spacer to make that happen. Maybe someone more experienced with wheels will chime in but I think the 35s might be too large with just the air ride links. I feel like you'd need the BDS 4 inch lift for 35s but maybe not. Best to find a good tire shop on a slow day and let them hook you up.

ATM925 are you getting any errors when you try to change from normal ride height to offroad2? I can lower or lift one time but it will give me an error if I try to go up 2 or back to normal ride height

Yes, with the swapped links offroad 1 is now normal and you cannot go into offroad 2 because the new offroad 1 setting is as high as offroad 2 and maxes out the suspension.
