Real Newbie here.

Just picked up a HemiGTX and although the mileage is low the original AR Motto wheels are toast. Doesn't look like the original chrome was very good to start with. It's peeling in sheets.

I really like the look of the Cragar 20x9 Supersport 610C. The Cragar site says they don't fit. Is the only problem a different offset?

From reading your write-up and what information I think I've got right, Cragar is a +20 and the stock was a +30? So could I run without the 10 spacer (285/55/20 Tires) or will it be mandatory?

Thanks for your help.

I'm not a big fan of that particular rim. Not really sure how it would look on a truck. But if you like it, that's all that matters. Personally, I would prefer something like the 701C....resembles the new 22" R/T rims.

Anyway, I don't know what the offset of the factory AR wheels is. I'm sure it's very close to the stock 20x9 rims which I believe are around +18 or +19mm offset. Unless I am missing something, I see no reason at all why the wheel you are looking at in 20x9 with +20 offset wouldn't fit. That's about as close to stock as you can get. You should not need a spacer and that tire size should fit fine. You could possibly even run a 305/50/20. If you are serious about those rims, I would call Cragar and get them to explain why they say they will not fit.

Starquest,
Thank you for the reply. Yes I am currently running the stock 20's.

For ease it looks like the 275/65/20 are the way to go, yet a little more expensive down the road for replacements.

For cost the wheel(17/18) and tire package would be more up front, but tire replacement down the road would be cheaper.

Size I am looking for is just to stay as close to stock.

Side note, I was able to get 63k out of my last set of AT2 with plenty of towing mixed in. Just rotated every 5k at oil change.

Thanks for you input, I'll look into it. Had Cragar SS on my 70 Hemi Cuda race car and just brings back memories.




These look good too. I'll have to check the $$$.

I like the 33x12.50 nitto mud grapplers and found a combo with 20x9 with 0 offset wheels.
Will i need a leveling for 33tires?
Will the tires stick out of bushwalker fender flares?

Truck is 2006 quad cab

No level needed for 33" tires. The stock 20" tire and wheel is 33" tall. I don't know how far your flares stick out but I doubt very seriously the wheels you are looking at will stick out past the flares. They should stick out about 3/4" more than the stock 20" wheel.

bushwalker flares cover approx. 2-2.5", so this would be ok.

i know that the stock 20" tires are 33" tall, but my question was regarding the width, the 12.50" equals approx 315mm, this is a little bit more than 275.

With stock rims the 305s would be an issue on your truck but with the rims you are looking at you will be fine. By maintaining a 9" rim but going with nearly 3/4" less offset you are effectively moving the rims out that far and giving yourself more than enough room to clear them without rubbing.

Since I assume they are going to be pretty darn expensive maybe another option would be a tire(General) and wheel(Optional) package with a smaller wheel. This would keep future tire purchases a little cheaper.

Any and all help would be much appreciated with my dilemma. Thank you in advance.

The rest of the 20" offerings in the AT2 are too wide to run on a stock setup.

You might save a little money on the actual tires by going to a 17" or 18" rim but the cost of rims and tires together will still be much more than just buying tires for the stock 20" rims.

What size are you looking for? Close to stock? Taller? Wider? Both??
I've actually had 305/50R20 Terra Grapplers on my Lowered 10' Sport RCSB 4x4,
stock 20" chrome clads, no spacers, since June 2010, no rubbing .



Clears the upper A arm by a 1/4" (YMMV)







They are too worn to see one more Winter,
and replacements from Nitto run over $420 ea in Canada now.

So I picked up a set of General Grabber AT2's in the same size for $260 ea
I saved enough $$$ to buy a set of new 14' Sport non-chrome-clad take-offs I found on Kijiji.





a little dusty, but flawless once cleaned up...









I'm just waiting on a new set of TPMS sensors (ebay $69) to arrive before install them,
no rush, Winters a few months away still. I'll be sure to let everyone know if they fit or not.

My Nitto Terra Grapplers were 32.2" x 32.2",
The Grabber AT2's are 12.4" x 32.0" so it should be close (2 tenths of an inch wider)

--------------------------------------------------

Are the Express Wheels 20"x8" or 20"x9" ?

The other option for a Ram in a Grabber AT2 is to go one size taller than stock (275/65R20), (11" x 34")
