I assume that trimmimg the plastic wheel wells up front. Could you bend it as opposed to trimming?

I appreciate the guidance.
Probably the lower front bumper valance and maybe behind the tire just before the steps.
But 20x9, 0 offset will fit and will more than likely not rub at all.
the -12? there is a possibility but because its close to the 0 offset, you may get a way with it, but you will see where trim/bend

0 offset is better than -12? I thought the negative offset would eliminate possible rubbing issues. Would I be better getting 0 offset wheels?

20x9, 0 offset is probably the best size and offset to avoid any rubbing.
This is what is recommended by many lift companies.

The more negative you get the more chances you have of rubbing as the tire is pushed out further and it will rub/grab in fender/lower valence when turning.
Driving straight you wont have an issue.

Note that I'm getting 17x9
Alright, from what I gathered the 0 offset will help avoid rubbing due to the height (35") of the tire. Does the the negative offset help with the width (12.50) of the tire?

Also, in regards to spacers, these push the wheel out compensating for the positive offset by creating a virtual negative offset (unless I'm mistaken). From what I've read in the forum many people use spacers to eliminate rubbing. This being said, wouldn't a negative offset help with the problem?

This is all new to me and online education via forum isn't always given by people who know. Any help is appreciated.

The wheels I have looked at. I have found some 17 with 0 offset, but the width is always only 8.5, which I think will not work with a 12.50 tire.

Pro Comp 1069
17x9, 5 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern
Backspace = 4.75 in.
Max Load = 2200lbs
Finish = Polished
Hub Centric = No
Offset = -6mm

M/T Classic Lock Wheel
17x9, 5 on 5.5 Bolt Pattern
BackSpace 4.5 in.
Max Load= 2500lbs
Finish = Polished
Hubcentric= No
Offset = -12 mm

I would go with the -12 offset, I'm running American Racing ATX 17x9 -12 offset with BFG AT's 37x12.5x17, I have minor rub at full turn left, my Bilsteins are set to 1.4 and 2" level, I also have a set of 8mm hub centric spacers

You will want the 12.5 wide tires. thats what helps with avoiding the 'rub'
Again, -12 looks nicer as its slightly wider.
As Tim mentioned above, he rubs slightly, but he can easily trim where its touching and be good to go. But where his rubs, it will not affect the tire in anyway, so he left it.

Again, -6 vs -12 is a matter of 1/4" difference.
Will you notice it? Probably not..... -6 will of course get you closer to the 0 offset.
But again, you pay to play for the look you want.

Heck, I have a 20x10, -24 offset.
I had 13.5 Toyo MT's and it rubbed the lower front valence. I took a dremel and trimmed where it rubbed and she was good to go.
But I do like the wider stance.

I just hate to tell you yes, and you rub and hate the recommendation.
So I wanted to keep you informed before buying.

Since you are running or will be running the Pro Comp shocks, those are maxed at 2.75 and will settle to about 2.5" So again, you will be fine. I prefer the -12 look and would deal with the minor rubbing over the 0 offset which I previously had and sold.

Thanks both of you. I'm undecided on the simu beadlock or not, but now I know what to expect. Pulling the trigger this weekend.

I also now have a choice between the Hercules Trail Digger M/T and the ProComp Mud Terrain. Both are about 1250 for a set of 5. I hate all these choices.

Will post pics of the setup when it stops snowing enough to get at least one day of sunshine.

That reminds me, I need to post pics of the Volant CAI too.
