Nitto 35/12.50R17 Mud Grapplers

I finally got my new tires on my truck and was wondering if any one else was running this size tire. And if they had any problems of clearing the fenders on tight turns, because mine are really really close. I also have the skyjacker 2.5 lift and 9 inch wide rims, And it is still close.

I have them on my 05 1500 with the t bars cranked with no rubbing what so ever. They did rub on the inner fenderwell just a bit so I drilled a small hole in the plastic inner fender at the very back bottom corner and used a wire tie to pull it back. No no rubbing even turning tight and hitting a bump.

I have those in 35 x 12.5 x 20 and I took them out in some mud and sugar sand, I wasnt impressed at first, I actually got stuck in some thick sugar sand in 2 wheel drive cause I felt the rear end sqwuat down and the truck stopped so I put it in 4 wheel HI and pulled me right out with no problems.
I didnt bury my truck in mud but from the mud holes I went into, the tire's performed pretty well for me,

I live in Michigan and there's been snow on the ground for the last few weeks and looks like it's going to be here for awhile, so it won't be till spring til I see mud. But they do go through alot of snow. Just last night i was plowing through some drifts as high as my bumber. They seem to be some pretty bad ass tires. Every one that's seen them love the way they look on my truck. well worth the 1200 bucks so far. Now I just hope they last.
