Help with a tire and rim question please
 
Guy looking at some rims,and I dont like the kind that stick out pass the wheel wells so this is the size can you tell me if thay will or will not
The wheels are 20x9 with a 0mm offset.. The lug pattern is 5x5.5 (139.7mm). and the tires the people are telling me to go with is,
These are 275/60R20 in size (33"x11"x20" is that the factory size now,I have the 20 inch factory rims,and if it is factory can I go taller and wider or whats the best,truck is all stock,thanks for any quick replays

The stock wheels are 9 inches wide and the stock tire size is 275/60/20, however, the stock 20s have +19mm offset. So basically the wheels you are looking at would stick out 19mm (0.74 inches) more than your stock wheels. I don't think that is too much but I guess it's all in what you want.

As for tires, it's common for people to go with 305/55/20. Some say they run them with no issues and some need 1/4 inch spacers or a leveling kit. If you are running the 0 offset wheels though I wouldn't think you would have to worry about them rubbing on the inside. Only thing is, the 305s are a good bit more expensive than the 275s. You could also run a taller tire, probably up to 35s, if you leveled the front.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your help,so as for the tires what do you think would be a good size and will not rub with these rims? if i dont have the leving kit

Without a leveling kit I would either stick to stock 275/60/20 or the 305/55/20. The difference is that the 305/55 is 0.21 inches taller and 1.18 inches wider than the 275/60 so really the wider width is all you will notice. I cannot say for certain that the 305/55 will not rub somewhere but with 0 offset wheels I don't see how in the world they could. Using 0 offset wheels in the stock 9" size is basically the equivalent of putting a 0.74 inch spacer on the stock 20" wheels.

Something else to consider....if the 305/55 is 1.18 inches wider than the stock tires then the wider tires alone would add half of that width sticking out from under the fender. So basically simply switching to 305/55 on the stock wheels would actually make it stick out 0.59 inches more than stock. Add that to the 0.74 inches from the 0 offset wheels and the new wheels with the 305 tires would stick out 1.33 inches more than stock. If you don't like the tires sticking out from under the fender I don't think you will like that so the 275/60 might be a better option for you with the new wheels. Run out and put a tape measure or ruler against the sidewall of your tire and see what you think at 0.74 inches and 1.33 inches to help you get an idea of how they would stick out.

Is your truck 4x2 or 4x4? From what I have read if it is 4x2 the 305s will definitely rub. People seem to have varying experiences with 4x4s and 305s. A few say they run them with no rub but I have also read several that say the 305s rub the sway bar slightly at full lock. You could always try the 305s and if they do rub you can fix it with either a front level kit or some 1/4 inch spacers, whichever you prefer. Neither of those are very expensive. If you want to be certain they won't rub and not have to mess with leveling or spacers I would say go with the 275s.

That's the correct bolt pattern and those rims are basically identical to stock as far as width and offset. They also look really kickass too!!! Have fun!

I recently had a flat tire and put my spare tire on. The spare is just a black steal rim. The dealership that put the spare on put the plastic chrome center cap back on the spare. I have to admit i do like the black rim with just the center cap on it. I have had several people tell me the same thing. I wouldnt mind getting all steal rims and have them painted a nice smooth dark black and have the center caps on them. It looks sweet. My truck is silver btw.
