What lift are you considering?

Yes he's concerned of whether the lift will allow him to run the wheels.

I think if you get a full drop lift you can use stock offset wheels.
Yes, a full drop kit will allow stock offset wheels. SOME knuckle kits will allow the stock offset wheels, some won't. I have run stock PYO 16s with 285s, stock 17" H2 and 07.5+ 17" with 37s, and my current 20x10s have 5.5" backspacing (more than stock). Running the stock offset wheels you will actually be able to clear more tire at the fender, but you may rub the frame or torsion bars, and the shocks if you run a dual shock kit, especially with cheap twin tube shocks (which are larger diameter).

Here is my truck with the 6" RCX NTD cranked the majority of the way with AAL kit on the rear. It has 20x8.5 rims with 32" tires.

Keep in mind if you want a good ride and have a good amount of suspension travel, you should keep it de-cranked, therefore it will sit probably about 1.5" lower than this.

IIRC with the RCX you cannot run the stock 16" rims with larger tires, but any larger wheels should work fine, hence those 20's should work.
