With a 20x10, your backspacing is probably going to be 4.5". The tires will stick out a few inches, but you'll probably be fine. You may need to trim a tiny bit off of the plastic valence on the front bumper, but that's probably it. It'll look tits though.

As for gears, 4.10s would be ok for towing, but 4.56 would be ideal :imo. It would give you a fair bit of grunt back.

the more backspace u get the more it will tuck in and have a better chance of not having to do much trimming. most ive seen have around 5". 5.5" is what i would look for, but mostly just pick a wheel u like. 4:56s would be best for 35s and towing.

I have 16" Pro comp rims with 4" of back spacing and no issues with rub running 35" tires on a 6" Pro Comp lift .

If you lift is a knuckle lift just check with RCD for rim recommendations to be sure but 4.5 is usually suggested.
