Thanks for confirming this....I knew you'd know
I read in another post that Stock lugs are 9/16 for 2011 and older.
The same post said that 2012 are different at M14x1.5 as you confirmed.

I researched for months and almost bought that same tire. Only reason I didn't is i wanted a lil more height. 285/65r20 = 34.6 x 11.2
I don't think you got the tire size right. 295/60r20 = 33.9 x 11.6
You are absolutely right on the 33.9x11.6.
I get that exact same number using this site, which I live by.
I always use this wheel size guide to check tire size vs originals or just tire size in general.
However, when I checked the Nitto website, this is what it had to say for the Terra Grappler specs
Shows it as 34.45 x 12.36.....
.....so do I go with the wheel size website I use (33.9x11.6) of Nitto's website (34.45 x 12.36)?

Maybe someone else with this setup will chime in and confirm.
I hope to figure this out soon or get other answers on this.
I want my wheels :smile up:
i may also run Mopar flares which I think stick out 1" and maybe ok with the -12 offset.
The rim guys says it will stick out 1-1.5"
How did you figure out how far it will stick out?

Misfits are a 0 offset and offer nothing else. where would this sit?

The Addicts with +18 offset and some OEM 1" flares gets my vote.
You answered my question above....

Do you have front or rear pictures that show the tires placement to the fenders?

I have now ordered my 5100's. Not sure if Ill do the spacer and just crank the front to 2.1 and leave the rear or go the route you did.
What did that spacer run you?

Thanks for all your help.

As far as the tire size goes, I guess I would go with Nitto. They know what they sell. That's tough though man cause it's a big difference.
To figure how far the wheel/tire will stick out:

The stock wheel is +19 offset. If you go to a -12 offset, the difference is 31mm or 1.2" (25.4mm = 1 inch). So your wheels will stick out 1.2" further.
The stock tire is 275 or 10.8" wide. The 295 is 12.36" (according to nitto)
This tells you the new tire will be roughly 1.5" wider. (.75" on each side)
So just add .75" and 1.2" and that's about 2" further than stock setup.

If you use the tire size we figured (11.6" wide) instead of nitto's, it should only stick out about 1.5" like your rim guy said.

With a 0 offset, the wheels will only be about .75" further out.

I'm sure there's a website that will calculate this for you, but i haven't found it yet. I hope this helps.

I don't have any pics looking down the side, but the tread on the tires lines up perfectly with the fender. The sidewall may stick out a lil bit further. I would go take some pics but it's been raining all day.

The rear spacer was $54.95. Don't remember how much shipping was.

I hope this is helpful to you man. I am by no means an authority on anything, just sharing what I learned through my research.

Those look like the right size. I would talk to the people you're buying the wheels from. I ordered mine from rimzoneonline. They sent me new lugs that look great with my wheels. You might check their prices. Calling them is a lot easier than navigating their website.

This has helped and made sense.
I just don't want to buy the wrong size.....so this is my dilemma.
Plus I am ordering from US and shipping to me, here in Toronto.
Makes it even worse.

I hear you man. I've put about 250 miles on my truck since the lift/wheels/tires.
I figure the shocks will settle some more but right now I'm sitting exactly one inch higher in the back. 43 1/8in from ground to fender in back and 42 1/8in in front. Just to give you an idea.
I LOVE the stance tho. Everywhere I go people comment on how it looks.
I may be getting some mopar flares myself. Haven't decided yet.
Keep me posted on which route you decide to go.

Man, this is just me but I see a lot of people on these forums are against tires with offsets that cause them to stick out past the fender. I personally LOVE the look of no fender flares and a nice offset that causes tires to stick out, hell say .75-1"+ out. It just looks so tough to see a truck rolling up in your rear view that is wider than all holly hell. The wider foot print is just so sexy. The tucked in look just reminds me of those train rail road work trucks. You see every now and again, with the skinny tires that are tucked all the way in lolol!

On the other hand! Nice truck man! You have me on the edge with that setup! That tire combo looks so good with that lift, and at the same time it isn't a huge jump so you are not loosing power. That is my major concern at the moment... Loosing power, I can't stand slammed trucks, and I just can't bring myself to drop one, but for my 2wd street machine I might be going with a 2 inch drop spring kit to level it. If I lift it I will LIFT it. Meaning 6 inches and 35s for sure. Just do NOT want to loose power at all... It would kill me the slightest hint of throttle lag more so than there already is after I did it...

Is the ride completely different? Do you feel it float on the freeway? Handle different? Do you feel a power loss?

I agree with you.
I also too personally like the 'stick out of fender look'. But others have made a good point as to the side paint of our trucks if stone was to get picked up by the wheels and thrown down the side of the truck.
Id hate to see scratches and dents just because I liked the look.....

So this is my problem...and possible rub. But a 0 of -12 offset will cure the rub part.
I am more than likely doing the 0 or -12 offset depending on the wheel I choose and the offset it provides

Brother has a 2010 f150 with almost 8 inches of lift, and 35s. He has a pretty wide offset. Sticks out quite a bit. He has had it almost two years like that now. Not a single scratch up the side. Get a good layer of wax and protective coating on there and you are good :P
