Apparently most of the kmc/motometals have the 4.5" backspacing for larger tire applications...according to the dealer who told me that the 909's wouldn't stick out.

The new wheels are on order, along with "rough country" nitro 9000 shocks, torsion keys and u-bolts. hopefully will get 'em soon!

I might be going from a 20 to an 18 when I lift my truck. Small tires and big rubber look mean.

You could get away with a 410 or 430 gear ratio and be okay too

you are not adding only size, but allot of pounds with those tires, 4.56 would be the gears i would choose.
