Default Tires, Wheels, Level Kit????

Hi everyone,

I just recently purchased my first Dodge. A new 2011 Ram 1500 Big Horn.

So far all I've done is added a Magnaflow muffler and Airaid intake, to help the Hemi breath.

I'm going to have a Readlift SST lift installed in the very near future (2.5"F/1.5"R).

As far as wheels and tires go I'm going to be purchasing Toyo Open Country MT's tires.

I really like the look of the Fuel Hostage 20x12 wheels. I need some information on backspacing, offset, bolt pattern, etc for the above set up.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Heres a 2010 with 20x12 Fuel Hostage (-44 offset) and 4.75" backspace (which is all they come in for that size) on 35s. Also it has a 7" CST Lift.

Also I forgot to add. I have an 06 Ram 1500 with a Readylift 2.5" leveling kit. I have 18x9 Eagle Alloys with 4.5" backspace and -12mm offset. I got them test fitted (picking up the tires Monday) to see if the 35x12.50s I got would fit and it fit nicely under the wheel wells. So I think you should be fine with such a big offset and the backspace.

You guys do know the factory 275/60r20 tires are 33in. OD right? They are factory 33x12.50's except they are 4 ply and @ $175-$200 cheaper. Just find that size in a rough at tread and save alot of $$$$$$$$$$$. Unless you plan on alot of hauling, which I doubt considering lift kits so why waste the money?
