I'd go that route. If you want to run big tires, I'd recommend you also invest in new wheels with a 0mm offset. That will pop them out from the axle and you'll be able to run something wider.

Speaking from no experience but my own, I'm running AT2 315/70R17 tires on wheels with a 0mm offset. Truck is a 2006 with a leveling kit. I only rub at full lock, going backward, and non-level ground.

Hope that helps.

Hi,
My first post on the forum.
So I'm doing level on my 1500... Bilsteins 5100 at 2.8" and 1" spacer at the rear.
For wheels and tires I went with SOTA SSD 17x8.5 -32 and BFG KO2 315x70r17
Do you guys think I'm gonna have issues with slight rubbing?

Hi, 1st post and I did not read all 22 pages lol. I have a 14 regular cab Express with the stock 20X9 clad wheels. They stick out beyond the fenderwells and sling gravel and chip the paint. I'm going with a 2/3 drop and wonder if I can run these: https://www.finishlinewheels.com/DOD...08/A-02265U10/ without rubbing or hitting the calipers. I want to get the tires inside the fenders.

For turning it may be an issue. That is a lot of offset.

I am in need of new tires. I wanted to see if Nitto Grappler G2 295/60's would work on my stock 20x9 wheels....but it doesn't look like they will, due to the 9" width.
I have been wanting to go with the Bilstein 5100's on the front, just to bring it level with the rear, but my concern has been excess wear and tear on the UCA's. Is it common to just add the struts and leave the factory control arms, or is it more common to replace the UCA's at the same time? TIA

I have the 20x9 chrome clad as well, and with 5100's set at 2.1 I was able to fit BFG KO2's in 295/65R20 on them with absolutely zero issues.

This is great info. I have been trying to determine the stock offset on the 20" rims which I did not see you mention. I read a few places online that they are typically a +18mm offset. I have a 2017 Ram Sport 4x4, I added a leveling kit and put 325/60/20 BFG All Terrains on it. I have a squeak that has been driving me crazy as I can't recreate it in my driveway. Well I took it to the dealer and they said my tire is rubbing the upper control arm. I bought 1-1/4" hub centric spacers for a quick fix and Rough Country 2.5" fender flares since they will stick out past the fenders now but I am looking at a 20x10 -24mm offset rims. Not sure if I need to go with the -24 offset or if the -12mm offset would be enough. Any info or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I also came across the following website that gives the stock offset for the rims as well.
