Default Another Tire Post

I know there's probably 1,000s of tire posts on here but just a quick question here to save me from trying to find an answer:

I need to buy new tires and I'm debating a 4" lift on my truck. Only way I will do it is if I can find a nice tire. The problem is I have the 20" OE wheels (20x8 I believe) and all the 35 tires I'm finding need a minimum of 8.5" wheel. This holds true with all the Mickey Thompsons, Dick Cepeks, all the ones I like. I'd also like to try and keep the white letters if possible (not a huge deal) but it seems like that idea gets cut out when you have a 20" wheel with 35s or 37s.

Anybody already been through this that can help me out? Thanks

The dodge website lists it as an 8" wheel, the sticker on the door jamb lists it as a 9 inch.

I work at discount tire and I have put 35/12.50/20 nitto trail grapplers on a 2010 sport with only a level kit on there. And yes you can put 35's on the OE wheels.
