i cant comprehend..
 
so i leveled my truck will bills at 2.1 and now i want the 33 inch trail grapplers on the 20x9 moto metal 951. are these tires a little taller than the stock wranglers? and also, what offset do i need for the wheels?? sorry to ask such a noob question but i simply just cant comprehend wheels and tires at all

and also im not 100% sold on 20x9 wheels. some say to go with 18x9 to make the tires look a little bigger. what do you all think?

33 should be around the same size. why not go 35 if you don't mind me asking...they'll fit with your level and new wheels.

with regards to the wheel size..it's personal preference.

20x9 will have more rim less tire sidewall
18x9 will have less rim more tire sidewall than the 20" wheels. I personally like more tire less rim so I dropped to 17" wheels. Some people say that's the "old school way" that new school is a lot of rim. But for goin offroad and all I prefer smaller rims and a lot of tire.

Main benefit to dropping diameter..is you save a good chunk of change. My exact set up now in a 20" diameter would have cost me almost $1000 more... and i still have the same over all 35" in the end..just smaller rims.

thanks for the reply bud. i dont really wanna go with 35s because of tire weight and fuel economy and overall price. but if i would id have set bills at 2.8 and use 1/4 spacers and get 0 or negative offset rims right?

correct! Thank you for reading around and researching first! good job :smileup:

you can get some metric 34" and kind of meet in the middle. They won't be much bigger than stock. But I understand the need to stay smaller
