Default 2013 Level, wheel option?

Will be leveling my truck pretty soon and had a question about wheels. Im probably going after market after my level. But i want to go with 305/55R20 Nitto Terra Grapplers. I know they are just a touch taller than the OEM tire size but the width should give it that nice stance.

I have a 20x9 with 0mm offset in mind but also a 20x10 with -14mm offset.

Would the 20x10 with -14mm offset be too much for a level only or should i stick with 20x9 0mm offset.

unless i'm mistaken and not learning what i think i am....20x10 @ -14 = 20x9 @ 0 in relation to the proximity to the truck
-14 will push the center of the rim out 1/2" which is your 14mm difference

i thought with the 20x10 i might have clearance issues when at full lock or when the suspension flexes.

not gonna be doing any major off roading but still.

if you're going to be using the exact same tire on either rim you'll be 1mm further out on the 20x10/-14 than you will with the 20x9/0. the question is are you planning to run too wide/tall a tire, and that i can't tell ya...haven't gotten that far at RamForumZ school yet
i do know that there is near 0 difference on the stance between those two rims

If you're only running a 305/55/20 tire on the 20x10 -14 rim with a leveling kit you should be okay. But if you go to a bigger tire down the road you'll run in to rubbing problems.

A 20x10 -14 wheel with a 305 tire is going to be sticking out about 2" past your fender. A 20x9 0 offset with the 305 tire will stick out about 1" past your fender. Just in case you wanted to compare the difference between the two.

Yeah, thats kinda the idea i wanted to get. I figured the further the wheel sticks out, the closer it would get to the front/rear wheel well when i turn that would cause it to rub.

the 20x10 2" out of the fender would look good, but for the sake of keeping the paint in better shape i think the 20x9 with 1" out of the fender will do fine i think.
im not sure how i feel about mud flaps.

You can run that tire on your stock wheels, assuming you have the factory 20's anyway. I am with no spacer and no lift.
