Default 18x9 Black XD Rockstars and 305/60/18s on Stock 2wd 4th gen?

According to West KY customs this combo fits a stock Dodge ram. Anybody doing this already on a 4th gen? Pics?

That's a 12.25 wide x 32.5 high tire. The rim is a 18x9 with +0mm offset.

Which makes me wonder as they are also saying you can't fit that same tire on a 18x9 rim with -12mm offset. Is the sweet spot +0mm? Wonder where an extra 1/2 inch out would rub anyways.. likely some plastic wheel well during offroad. Its also possible that common -12mm won't be a problem in 4th gen vs 3rd gen.

Also, how much mpg loss do you guys forsee moving from 20x9 275/60/20 to 18x9 305/60/18 .. I know look will change from street to meat.

I suspect someting like this.. 18x9 -12mm offset with 305/60/18 will fit with no rubbing on a 4th Gen 1500 Ram with no problems. Can anybody confirm this?

I spoke to a tire shop who said they likely would, but they don't like to mount big tires on rims with a neg offset on non lifted trucks.
