Default 2015 Ram 1500 - Method Mesh Wheels, Backspacing?

Hello everyone..

Ordered my Ram 1500 Laramie CC/SB EcoDiesel... Researching which wheels to purchase..

Looking at the Method Mesh wheels. They are new for 2014.

http://www.methodracewheels.com/coll...sh-matte-black

I am looking at a 20" wheel and 35" tire.

The question is... They only offer one back spacing option in 5 Lug. 5.75" or + 18mm. Will this work? I'm new to Dodge so I really don't know, but if my gut serves me right, these will be sunk in way to far? Sort of like stock, no?

I like the "NV" as well, but the backspacing available in 5 lug is 6" here or +25.

All of that said, what backspacing/offset is perfect for just a little poke? Thinking no more then 1"

20x9 inch wheel and 12.50 tires.

Thanks

Before I even get into everything regarding wheel sizing and offset I need to ask one question. Did you order your truck with air suspension or without?

No air suspension. I plan on installing a 4" lift.

Okay, you will need the lift (or a level) to fit 35's. A 20x9 +18 offset won't work to fit 35x12.5's You'll need at least a 0 offset to avoid rubbing on the upper A-arm. You can go with more of a negative offset if you want a wider stance. The majority of guys run 20x9 0 offset or -12 offset. I'd suggest looking through some of the stickied threads in the lifting section of the forum to see what the different setups look like and determine what you want.
