Default 315/70/17 fit with 2" level?

I am probably going to swap my stock 20" alloys and tires and go down to a 17" wheel and tire combo seeing as i can do this for close to same price as just replacing the 20" tires to a bigger size.Also i think it would look better,a 315/70/17 tire compared to a 295/65/20. Down the road also the tires would be cheaper which is another bonus and hopefully i can sell my set for at least a grand as they only have about 11000 kms on them.So my question is,will these tires fit on a rim with 0 offset or would i need at least a -6 offset? Can the tpms from the 20" rims be used in the 17" rims as that would save some coin also. So will this combo fit on my 2012 with a 2"HBS level no problem or will there be some rubbage on the inner fender plastic? Any pix of your truck with this combo would be greatly appreciated,thx.

good information to know .

the larger the wheel size the higher the cost of the tire ?? so there is less tire and rubber to make it but it costs more ?

i was thinking of 18's if I go aftermarket but i do like the stock chrome 20's .

Truck looks great! So those tires on there are 315/70/17 ? What lift is on there,a 2.75 Bilstein or the 4"lift in your signature? You also say those rims are 2mm offset,is that +2 or -2,thx.

Looks great

I have 315/70/17's on my truck currently with stock "offroad" rims +19, I had to use a 1/4 spacer for it to not rub. So a rim with close to 0 offset or - offset will be good.

I know this is an older thread but did you end up going with the 315/70/17’s? I’m looking to do the same thing this spring. Installing a leveling kit and dropping my stock 20’s for a set of 17” Dick Cepek DC2’s with a -13 offset wrapped in 315/70/17 BFG Allterrains… Just curious if it worked out for you.
