Default Installed Fuel Hostages 20x10 -24 35x12.50R20 Toyo Open Country MT

Hey Guys

Just received and installed some new rims and tires on my 2012 Ram 1500 ST.

The only mod that I have up untill now is Bilsteen 5100 set at 2.8" to level out the truck. I decided to go with the 20x10 hostages -24 offset and Toyo MT's 35x12.50R20. I think I read every thread on offsets, backspacing, rubbing, max tire size on a leveled ram, and I figured I would go with this setup and crossed my fingers that everything would fit.

I get a little bit of rub making tight turns but I fixed this by heating up the plastic tab inside the wheel well with a heat gun (took about 5mins on both front tires).

I purchased a new Nissan Frontier CC in 2010 and had a heck of time getting my dirtbikes in the truck so I traded it in for a new 2012 Ram and I am just now started getting it setup the way I wanted.

I have the RCX 6" lift I was going to install over the weekend but my buddy was not able to give me a hand so it will have to wait a few weeks. I took a bunch of photos.. hopefully they are not too big.

Those wheels and tires look great! Can't wait to see the pics of the lift as well. Do you plan on getting flares for your truck?

Thank man.. I wish I could of knocked out the lift over the weekend but my buddy bailed (too hungover) early Saturday morning . I plan on getting flares at some point. The -24 offset looks killer but they do stick out rather far.

I have no doubt there would of been rubbing but I used a heat gun to push the the plastic guard (not too sure what its called, looks like a fender guard) before I mounted the tires.

There is about 1" of clearance after using the heat gun but it definitely would of made contact had I not done that.
