Default 2013 RAM 1500 Laramie 20" Wheel - Offset ?

I am about to pick up my new 2013 Ram 1500 Laramie CC 4x4 6.4 bed , 5.7L, 8-Speed, Air Ride Suspension Truck next week.

It is being delivered with the 20" x 9" Chrome Clad Wheels and GoodYear P275/60 R20 All Season Tires.

Upgrade plan:

I am planning to replace the Tires with Toyo Open Country A/T II
LT275/65 R20 ( 126/123S E/10)

My question:

If I decide to replace the OEM Wheels with aftermarket 20" x 9" wheels what is the correct offset value ?

I get confused with the +1, 12 , -6 etc... values that I see when looking at Wheels.

And would the offset value stay the same if I decide to switch to a 17 or 18 inch Wheel and tire combination ?

Fred

factory offset is +19

and yes u can get varying size rims in varying offsets.

now say u find a +20 offset...that's still okay...very close to factory. now 0 or -12 is a different story

usually backspacing is correlated to offset. so as long as you focus on getting the correct offset, you will be find when it comes to backspacing. it's hard to explain.

you can google "offset and backspacing" for some diagrams and explanations. Makes me head hurt

Default Wheels I am considering : FUEL - PUMP D514 or D515

The wheel that I am considering and stopped my dizzying search is the FUEL PUMP D514(Chrome) or D515(Black).




I contacted Fuel and they gave me the following as fitting the 2013 RAM 1500

20 x 9 :
(Stock) +20 Offset , 5.75" Backspace
(Leveled) 0 Offset , 5" Backspace

18 x 9 :
(Stock) +20 Offset , 5.75" Backspace
(Leveled) 0 Offset , 5" Backspace
