Default Need Solid Answer and Pics for Tire Size!!!

Hey everyone. I have a 2012 Ram 1500 quad cab 2WD Lone Star. I have Ultra Maverick wheels that are 20x9 with +18 offset. I am ready to install my 1.5" daystar leveling spacers and need to know what tire will fit. I read hundreds of posts but can't seem to find a solid answer. I would love to run 295/60R20 Trail Grapplers by Nitto, but don't know about the rub issues on the upper control arm. I don't mind the sway bar rub. Can I fit these tires. Does anyone have a similar setup in a 2WD? If those don't work what tire size can I run. I don't want to go smaller than stock height.

295/60R20 is about a 34.7" tall by 11.6 Wide. I'd like to see some pictures if anyone has any. Thanks.

I don't have pics to share with you but I do know you will be cutting to close.
Stock rims are 20x9 +19 offset.
You pretty much have stock size aftermarket rims.
From my recollection when i ran stock wheels, I had 1/2" - 5/8" to hitting the A arm
These tires are 20mm wider than stock. But 10mm added on either side.
Is getting you very close
10mm is .40" so mathematically you should be ok.
But I have yet to see a member rerun this tire with a similar to stock offset.

If you do it keep me posted as Id like to know the reali life answer.
Again though, mathematically it fits

But then you have to crank your wheels left and right and see if you'll have 10mm of room to play without rubbing.

Thanks. I know I will be close but that's what I thought. Measurment wise it should work, but you get so many mixed reviews that it is hard to say for sure. I am pretty sure I am going to go for it. Once I do I will post a reply to let you know the outcome.

Worst case is you get $30 1/4" spacers.
