Default 295-65-20 on a 13' Sport 4x4?

I have the HBS Leveling kit I bought from you a few months ago, really like the sport wheels (20x9) so trying to keep them and just powdercoat them. I am trying to get to around 35" All Terrains if possible but would also like a good stance (I like the tire to stick out just a little past the fender if possible).

Thoughs on the 295/65/20s? or something else? Thanks for your time, and I will shoot you an email if itll workout so I can order.

I'm also interested in the 295/65R20 on the stock rims. Would I be able to fit these with no rubbing with just a leveling kit?

Also, just from reading on here, it seems like most people are against spacers. What are they and what are the disadvantages/why don't people like them?

Thanks!

Typically a 285 is the widest tire you can fit on the stock rims without any rubbing. However some guys have gotten away with up to a 305. The problem is that each truck is built slightly differently so it's hard to fully judge exactly what will fit on each truck.

A 295/65/20 will fit no problem height wise with a leveling kit but you will most likely need 1/4" spacers to clear the width. I understand why people are against larger spacers (such as 1" or greater) but you shouldn't have any problems with 1/4" spacers. There's more than enough stud length to accommodate them.

Thanks Brandon! Where could I get spacers if I need them? And is there any way to measure before ordering the tires to check if I'll need spacers?

There's no real way to measure first to see if you'll need them. What you could do is buy them and then try to mount your wheels and tires without them first and if it works, return the spacers. But you will want to have them on hand in case you do need them.

I know Rough Country makes them as well as a few other companies. You can get them through Bully's Performance or maybe check with your local auto suppliers if you want to get some in person which might make returning them easier if you don't need them.

Does Bully's recommend using spacers?

Why or why not?

They should fit but it might be a little tight. There's a possibility you'll have to do some trimming/remolding on the inner fender to fully clear them without rubbing.

You'll be sticking out about 2" past the fender with that set up. Checkout some of gonefishin776's pictures. He's running a similar set up on his '07.
