I knew there were going to be fitment issues. The OEM 20x9 are +19 offset. The replicas are 10" wide & then their adding 6 more milliliters of positive offset. I think 10mm hubcentric wheel spacers are in order! That would bring it to 24x10 et15.

Not true, 25mm is perfect for a 1" wider wheel. If 25mm = 1.0" then 12mm is roughly 1/2" and 6mm is roughly 1/4". 19 + 6 = 25.....perfect! No fitment issues, you do need to comply with the correct ratio tire. A 285/45/22 would be perfect after a 2/4 drop.

We're not on the same page here. Say you have a 9" wheel with a positive 19mm offset. Then you go to a 10" with a positive 19mm. You just added a half inch in width to both sides (fender side & suspension side)... So already you have moved the wheel in a half inch... Now you add 6mm to the offset in the positive direction (closer to the suspension). Now you have 0.5"+0.6mm too close to the suspension whatever that comes to.

Ok, I was writing that from my cell on the way home from work. Heres what should have come out of it.
With a 10" wide wheel we can only allow so much out past the fenders and back inside the wheel well towards the suspension. So the best option, in terms of rim width, would be, add 1/4" outside (adds a perfect touch of agressiveness to the look w/o any bad effects) then add 3/4" inside the wheel well. This has perfect clearance in terms of rim width. The rim will never hit the suspension. The only adverse effect is the need to run the correct tire (narrower) ratio to give enough clearance.
I may have overlooked your statement above. I believe I was thinking you were talking about a fitment issue with the rim at that width and offset (10" wide with 25mm offset) when the only problem is trying to run the 305 width tire on that rim. But, if you were to keep the offset (19mm) the same you would have other issues since the rim would hang out 1/2" past the fenders, regardless of tire size you run. With the 25mm you at least have the option to run a 285 width and have clearance inside and keep the rim at a respectable distance form the outer fender.

In an ideal setup I would have an equal amount of width added to each side regardless of how much they protruded passed the fenders. Just for the sake of tire life & keeping the suspension functioning as close to stock as possible. You cannot correct a wheel rub. But you can add are fender flares to compensate for the wider tire. 285 is too narrow for a 10" wheels anyway. I mean you can run it but I wouldn't recommend it.

Very good points, I guess I got caught up in how perfect I want the wheels to sit and how much Im not a fan of fender flares, as if everyone felt this way, lol. Then again, they did take some of this into consideration when making the wheel offset...

I don't really like the flares either but I have seen too many 3rd Gen Rams with rusted 1/4 panel wheel wells (rocks to metal is never a good thing) I feel they are an obligatory upgrade considering I'm in for the long haul with this truck. I like the OEM style bushwacker flares. They only give an half inch protection but I think it'll go along way with keeping rock chips off the painted steel. I actually got an email reply back today from Doug Heideman from factory reproduction today about the 24" reps. I'm waiting on a quote for 295/40/24 tires and sensor package.
