Tires And Rims for Dodge ram
 
So I got bored with my 2005 dodge ram rims and looking to get some new tires and rims instead of dishing out $1000+ for 20" mt tires. So here are the tires and rims i'm looking at:

Rims:

Total is around $1200, same as getting The nitto trails I want, anyways my question is will these wheels and tires work together and will it rub. I have the 3" Spring lift done to the truck, heres a pic:

My personal opinion is that I would be worried about rub. The +20 offset is really pushing it with that wide of a tire, even with the lift. I would recommend going with at least a 0 offset or even go negative a little. It will set the tires out a bit, but would help eliminate the worry of rub. Maybe a -10 or -12 offset (those are fairly common)....

I have never heard of the tire. Can't really offer anything on that.

It's gonna be tight. The +20 offset sucks the wheel into the wheelwell quite a bit and a 315 tire is 12.4" wide so I am certain you will have a rub when turning. Also, a 70 series tire is pretty tall so with just 3" of spring lift, I suspect you'll rub at the trailing edge of your bumper.

Go down to Les Schwab and have them test fit some wheels and tires for ya. They will do it for free and you can test fit different offset and size wheels with different tire combos.
