    Most of the custom offsets posts aren't reliable for fitment because "fitting" means different things to different people.

    Manufacturers are usually pretty accurate because they have to answer to upset customers who have issues rubbing during extreme use.

    If you're going with a positive offset wheel, look for a design that doesn't have the lip, like a KMC monster, or Fuel Vapor for example.

    You're welcome. I went back and forth a lot before I ordered them. They don't rub at all. I do have a zone 1.5" body lift and a 3.5" rcx.

    Looking for clarification on what size tires to run or can run. Not looking for the biggest I can run for this setup, but what good size will fill out the wheel well:

    1. Truck: 2016 Silverado 1500 4x4 LT
    2: Doing 2" front end only level
    3. Wheels: running the stock 18" wheels and mounting new tires on those
    4. Going with the BFG A/T KO2

    I am asking this question specifically because I know/have read that the BFG's actually run smaller than other tires in the same listed size. I am not looking for the biggest tire I can run because this truck sees daily driving use, highway trips with the family, and pulls our 7,000 pound travel trailer. So want some more meat in there, but not so big that makes towing annoying. Already have tuner to adjust for the tire size, just looking for input on good size to go with.

    Was planning on a LT285/65-18E setup. Think that will look good or something else to look at?

    You need to look at the tire specs, they are all sized different. Compare your size you have now with the actual size you want. Most 295 70s run around 34x12 but it varies by manufacturer. But if you are clearing now (assuming something like a 265 70) I'm not sure why you wouldn't easily clear after a 6" lift.

    yea I have 265/65r18 the stock tires, I am sure I will be able to fit the actual tallness of the tire but I am not sure if the tire is gonna hit the knuckle and what not from the width

    Too much back spacing, going to need a wheel spacer most likely.

    I'm lazy and don't feel like reading through 3k posts. What's the biggest tire I can run on a 20" wheel with stock suspension on a 2010 Silverado? 285/55r20?

    Anyone running 35x12.50-20 bfg ko2's? Curious how true to size they are when they are mounted up. I know normally bfg tends to run a little shorter and narrower than advertised. Just curious to hear from someone that has them

    Try looking at the manufacturer's specs. They list the exact dimensions and usually what size wheel they were measured on.

    12 Silverado with 3.5 rcx lift. Had 20x9(offset to match stock, not sure of exact number) with 305/50/20 and a set of 33x12.50x20 before those. Didn't have any issues besides a sway bar rub at full turn on the 33s. Sold those

    Now looking at a 20x10 with -24 offset and a set of 295/60/20. Very unsure they will fit. Any insight or suggestions please.

    you'll have to trim the rear side of your fender, if you keep the lower valance you will be trimming that a little.

    I have a 4" fabtech lift, same spec wheels but with 305/55/20, I trimmed the fenders a good amount and still have a small amount of rub but enough to deal with.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have a 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT z71 that I just installed a 2.25 ReadyLift leveling kit on. I have a few questions on wheel and tire size. I want to get the biggest tires possible without rubbing. I don't mind minor trimming plastic or the carpet liner(don't want to trim metal on brand new truck). I want to get 20" fuel hostage wheels.

    I'm just not sure about what's the best width and offset to get? And what size tire would be the max? Could I get a 33x12.50r20 like the atturo trail blade MT(that's what I'm looking at not sure if they'll fit)?
