Default 2013 RAM 1500 fitment questions

I have a 2013 2WD RAM 1500 HEMI Bighorn that I plan on getting a CST 7" spindle lift for in the coming weeks. I was wanting to put on 35x12.5R20 on 20x10 rims with a wider stance (no more than -12 offset tho). Would I have full clearance without shaving? and what would be the best offset to have a wider stance and still prevent paint chips from tossed rocks?


Thanks in advance!

That offset is right for that width of rim. If you have fender flares, you should be fine..

what about a 20x9 with a +0, would I still need fender flares to prevent rock chips?

With 35x12.5's on 20x10 -12 offset rims you're going to be sticking out past the fender approximately 2.75"-3". With 20x9 0 offset you'll be sticking out around 1.5"

What kind of tires are you planning to run? MT's or AT's. What I found with the Toyo MT's I had on my 1500 (on 20x9 -12 offset rims) is that I didn't really get any scratches at all. The tread on those tires is so wide that it doesn't pick up many rocks at all. Now I also don't drive on many gravel roads and only ran them through the spring and summer. So it could be worse in the winter.

If you go with the 20x9 0 offset you can get away with OEM style flares as they will cover the tread. If you go with the 20x10 -12's and still want to be fully protected you'll want to go with Bushwacker Pocket Flares which will cover your tire completely.

I was looking at either Toyo MT's or Nitto AT's, I didn't really want to invest in flares yet but I might just have to break down and do it to get what I want and save money in the long run.
