Default Could I put on 18 Wheels instead of my 20's?

So basically could I put 18" offset wheels on my 2013 ram 1500 with bilsteins at 2.1 and run 35"s.
Would this be a good idea?
I have stock 20's now

I was thinking the wheels would be less money and also the tires are less and I can get the bf goodrich ta KO2's in that size

Yes. There's no issues with running 18's on your truck. However if you want to run a negative offset wheel for a wider stance with 35's you'll want to bump your Bilsteins up to 2.8".

You can go down to 17" wheels, any smaller and they won't clear the brake calipers

Thanks. I may do 17 or 18 then. I dont want to bring the bilsteins up any more. Could I get 295 60's to work?
or maybe 285/65
Without a spacer and what offset could I get it to work?

Thanks

Fair warning, 17s will limit you on both brake sizes and what types of tires are available. Generally you wont be able to buy and high performance summer tires in 17 inch.

18s are probably the best size to have as far as availability and price of tires. I've really never felt a desire for bigger brakes. YMMV.

Striker, you know I only need KO2s year round.
