Does a body lift help with the rubbing of the tires if they are too wide.. I am currently trying to decide between the kmc xd's 20X8.5 with +10 offset or 20X10 -24 offset. Ive got a 2013 ram with bilsteins, also trying to decide running them at 2.8 with a rear spacer, or 2.1 with a body lift. Any thoughts?

Yes it will help greatly!
Well depends on what body lift you choose. 1.25" or 3"
Either way, it helps as it gives that additional room for clearance

If you dont want to add the body lift, I would find a rim that is 20x9 with a 0 offset
But lift and what you can run is all relative...
If you need pricing on wheels and tires let me know
All ours ship for free, mounted and balanced with lugs included.

What fast said beast!!! It does and I have them at 2.8 and the 1.25 bl plusthe TG rear 1 inch spacer..So IMO get the bl if your not doing a suspension lift ..I had just a small amount of rubbing on my left side on some rubber pc and I took care of that no problem. I would get the -24 offset every one loves my set up when they see it in person

I was thinking of getting the 20X8.5 rim and just doing bilsteins and 35's. I do like the look of the body lift, I just dont want my tires to be sticking out too far, not really intested in flares, plus your tires look extremly wide. How many inches differnece beween the 20X10's -24 and a 20X8.5 +10. I wish they made a 20X10 -12 and save me the hassle of this

They use to have -12 and I can confirm if this is discontinued or can be had

Looks like I will go with the 20X10's -24 offset. Trying to find some narrower 35's to put on so im not sticking out too far. Any thoughts? Also, with the body lift, your using a rear spacer as well? If i set my bilstens at 2.1 it wouldn't be needed to be level would it? Rather than the bilsteins at 2.8 and a rear spacer?

295/60 or 295/65 maybe an option for you! But they are smaller than a full size 35"
for setting your bilstein you need to measure your current rake to make sure you know what it is before hand.

Not sure about bknife, but i have 6" lift and bilsteins set to 1.4 and 35's (waiting on my 37's) and my truck is 82.5" and my garage opening is 83" (1" shorter than 7 feet) to be exact. so I squeak in there. with the 37's, i will be 1/2" too tall

So you will be ok
