Default Would this work?

Hi, i have a 2011 ram sport 4x4 hemi, i was thinking about this setup:

BFG 285/65 r20 on stock wheels (those are 34,7 x11,5)
1/4" wheel spacer
Bilsteins 5100 at 0,7" or 1,4" (as little as i can)

What do you guys think? would that rub? im really scared about getting vibrations if i go any higher than that.
Its not for off roading, but it will see some bad terrains from time to time, i use the truck to go camping with a lot of heavy stuff in the back (arround the payload limit) and as a daily driver so i need it to be reliable.

Thanks.

If you have the chrome clad 20's that sports come with then the BFG 285/65r20's will fit fine with no rubbing. I had the same tires on my chrome clads last year and they were great. I had my truck leveled and didn't need a spacer, so if you install the 5100's you shouldn't need a spacer either.

Dos the 285/65 fits under the bed? did you notice any hits on the MPGs?

I never tried putting one in the spare tire spot so I'm not sure. There was a slight hit on the MPG's but nothing too drastic.
