Correct, 20x9 0 offset will give you the least chance of rubbing. You'll be sticking out about 1 5/8" on the front with 35x12.5's. I personally went with a 20x9 -12 offset wheel to get a little wider of a stance, especially for when I lift it. I stick out 2 1/8" on the front with my set up (I think you saw my wheel/tire thread with all the specs)

i would indeed want to have them stick out a bit, just not sure about how far. I still dont know much about tires and wheels... can you get wheels in pretty much any offset? or does each manufacturer have their own offsets that they offer wheels in?

Generally you can get most wheels in a variety of different offsets. Some manufacturers and models will vary slightly, but you should be able to find a set up that works.

I have a 2004 dodge ram 1500 3.7l v6 rwd I have a 3"rc suspension kit and a 2.5 coil spring leveling kit. Will these go together with little alignment issue and the brake line be long enough also. And if I have issue could I adjust my tires rod ends to compromise that . Anybody know this would be helpful. And also will the RC 3" front shocks gonna be long enough with the 2.5 level coil spacer on top? Tried installing it today in 3hrs got drivers side amost done and the shock top nut was seized on I'm gonna have to cut it off clean.

soooo ive been looking at a 17" setup, and i like it!

saves quite a bit of money too, so i think i may go that route!

Greetings all!

I have a 2011 Ram 2500 Hemi Crew Cab 4X4. I installed a 2" Hell Bent Steel front leveling kit a few months back. I plow with this rig, I wanted it to level out a bit. Immediately I heard a noise coming from the front end. It sounds like someone tapping on a drum. It usually happens when there is deflection in the road or turning, potentially in the steering somewhere. Any ideas on what is causing this noise?
