Tire size for 20X9 inch rim?? At stock height or w/leveling kit?

Considering buying a set of 20X9 inch rims, but have no clue what tire size I could run.

Currently truck is at stock height, but I soon plan on getting a leveling kit.

So....what size would you run (at stock height) on a 20X9 inch rim

What size would you run with a leveling kit (ProComp for example)?

Lastly, where can I find the best price?

Thanks!!

Rim size is up to you. I thought a 10 inch wide wheel was standard though. As for tire size prolly 33-35 inch tires with a leveling kit. I think 35'z should fit fine but u might g et a little rub. T

Thanks Looie and Delaware, that's the info I'm looking for.

I'm trying to find either a set of OEM 20s (local to my area), or am considering picking up a set of 20X9 rims from a member on the board. Either way, I need to know what will and will not fit.

I'd love to go with some 33s or 35s...just got to find the right set at the right price!! Haha...

Thanks!

Igo...06, thanks for the help. I appreciate it.

06, good looking rig...are the 325s about equal to a 33 or a 35?

I've considered 35s on 20s, but don't want to run into too many rubbing issues. If 33s would work better, I'd probably go that route...

Thanks!

The tires that Delaware's truck are sporting are 34.5" tall and about 11.25" wide. Just happen to be the next tire for my rig also.

thanks for the kind words!
the 325s are the width which is roughly 13". The height is 35" because... well. here we go! gonna use the google

here's a quick definition for everyone (including myself) on the tire size:
325/60R20 broken down- 325 millimeters wide. 60 is the ratio of height to width (aspect ratio). R stands for Radial. 20 is the diameter of wheel size in inches. (yes, wheels and tires are 2 separate things... took me a while to say the right thing.)
LESSON OVER! haha i feel quite a bit smart now for so early in the morning!
hope ALL this helps out some.
