Default Trying the find the right wheel/tire combo...KMC XD's/ Nitto TrailGrapplers

Going to order a new 2013 Ram and will be looking to upgrade wheels and tires.
I am purchasing 4 bilstein 5100 adj. shocks to level the truck off

Wheels
KMC Xd's
20X10 5-5.5 -24 offset 4.5 backspacing

with
Tires
Nitto Trail Grapplers
35X12.5R20

Questions, Comments Concerns?

Wheels only come in a 10'' or 8.5'' width. 20X8.5 doesn't seem wide enough Will this setup rub? What are my other options? I hear the nitto tires run wider then 12.5 '' This might be an issue, also dont want the tires to be sticking out huge.

Thanks in advance

I believe a 20x10 with -24mm offset will stick out 3-3.5 inches.

1. Only the front bilsteins are adjustable, not the rears...but still sweet you are getting all 4!
2.Those nittos run around 13.4" wide roughly
3. with that -24mm offset and the wider than advertised nittos you might have some plastic rubbing but nothing some minor trimming can't fix. On a 10" wide rim and -24mm offset you are gonna stick out quite a bit from the fender. I have my 35"s on a 8.5" rim no problem..but they are also only ~12" wide not 13.4" so...

sounds like a sweet set up..but might want to reconsider the offset with a rim that wide if you dont want the tires sticking out far

Sounds like a 20X8.5 would be the way to go then. They have a +10 offset. Think I will have any rubbing issues. How far will they be sticking out?
Since the nitto are wider then normal, would a 35X12.5 toyo m/t fit on the rim with no rubbing?

Just read that the 20X8.5's are not recommended for '13 rams since they are too narrow. I would like to see toyo M/T's compared to the Nitto's. If they are a true 12.5'' wide or less, would mean they aren't sticking out as much, and less, maybe no rubbing

Toyo MTs are 13'', no actual width for the nitto's...maybe I will start looking at fender flares, dont see any other options for these rims

As stated by gonefishin776 and Ryanb, the 20x10 -24 offset is going to end up sticking out a long ways. You'd need to get Bushwacker pocket flares if you wanted to cover them and they'd still be sticking out past those. Also with that wide of a rim and negative offset it doesn't matter what tire you put on it, you're going to rub with just a level. You'll most likely be able to fix that will a little trimming though.

Someone also mentioned a 20x8.5 with a +10 offset. I don't recommend that.... for one with the Trail Grapplers being so much wider than listed you'll probably rub the UCA plus they'll be tucked under the truck too far. A 20x8.5 with a -12 or -24 offset would be a better choice. And they would fit on your '13 no problem. Them being to narrow doesn't even make sense....

After much searching I have realized that most people running rockstar rims have th 8.5'' wide rims. Since im only doing bilstiens to level the truck im looking for some narrower tires then the nittos so I dont rub. I dont think they will be tucked under, should be perfect. Heres a video of what i think 20X8.5 with 35's looks like

Can anyone recommend a 35'' tire that wont rub with just the bilstein shocks? Mickey tompsons baja are only 10'' wide but are a little pricey
