    Trying to upgrade to an after market wheels and tires which will fit and work?

    I did my Bilsteins all around lift set up at the 2nd to the top setting. So now I want to install new tires and wheels. I have the stock 18x7.5 wheels with stock tires 275/65/18 on right now. I want to know if anyone tried a 295/70/18 tires with a 18x9 wheels and if it fit without rubbing at all? If not what would be a good bigger tires for a 18x9 wheel that would fit fine without rubbing and a better tires than the stock. My uses is regularly on the road driving and occasionally off roading. Thanks in advance guys!

    A lot will depend on back spacing of the rims. What back spacing are you looking to get? Height you should be fine that's a 34.3" tire and I had 34.1" tires with no level and no rubbing.

    I have no clue at all on what back space I should get. I want one that's not going to affect the handling and durability of my truck but still looks good. I do know per STdan's post that I have a 5.5" back space on my stock 18x7.5 wheels. That's one reason I posted here so I can get an idea on what other members after market wheels and tires set up.

    Here's a good website/tool to compare your current tire wheel combo to a package you maybe looking at.

    https://www.rimsntires.com/specspro.jsp

    what I would do is find the wheel you like, than find what offsets it's available in and put that into the above calulator. Compare that to your stock. The lower the offset the lower the Back spacing the farther the wheel/tire will stick out.

    BS on stock 18x7.5 +44 is actually 6". I run 295/65/18 DuraTracs on an 18x9 +20 with Bilsteins on next to top sitting with no rubbing and no trimming (even flexed and at full lock - they have never rubbed in 40K miles). But, clearance to front valence and rear liner is close at lock. 295/70/18 should be doable with little to no trimming. I'll try and post up a few pics, but I've been having some photobucket issues on my phone recently.

    And, an idea how far they stick out. A larger offset would tuck them in more, but be closer to the UCA. A smaller or negative offset would poke them out more (maybe causing more potential rubbing issues flexing or at lock).












    Hope this helps some.

    Thanks for the feedback and the pictures this will really help me in deciding which size to go with. That looks really close you're right it gave me an idea on how a 295/65/18 will look like. But your set up looks really good! I don't mind the wheel sticking out a bit like that. My 275/65/18 looks that close inside the fairings too and since the 295/70/18 does rubs and require some trimming and my Bilsteins are set to the 2nd to the top setting then that size is out. So I think I'll just go with a 285/65/18 then to be sure.
