Default Tire / lift advice

So I am almost done with the power mods and going to start the lift. I am going with Bilstein 5100 adjustable all the way up to the 2.7" setting and 1" rear spacer. Question is can I put 33" tires on stock 17" rims without rubbing? Do I need a spacer? Or if I go aftermarket 17" rim what offset do I need to not rub?

You can go up to 35" diameter (which is what I recommend).... That's not where you'll have the issue. It's the width that will give you problems. You can fit up to a 285 on stock wheels. Wider and you need 1/4" spacers.

If you go aftermarket you'll want at least a 0 offset.

What is a backset? Some wheels I am looking at have that but if I just go 0 offset they should work? Starting to lean towards aftermarket rims.

Backspacing and offset are directly related. Offset is the distance that the mounting surface is off the center of the rim. Backspacing is the distance from the mounting surface to the back lip of the rim. Here's a chart that explains it fairly well.



A 17x9 0 offset wheel will clear 35x12.5's no problem. If you want your tires to stick out further you could go with a -12 offset. I'm running 20x9 -12 offset wheels with 35x12.5 Toyo MT's and I stick out 2" past my fender on the front. There's a link to my wheel/tire thread in my signature below with lots of pictures if you want to take a look.
