Rims and Tires ?

I want to get a set of wheels and tires. My question is the sizes of both. Im not sure what to look for. I do have a leveling kit on the truck right now. I bought the truck with it already on. I believe it a 2.5 or 3" lift in the front. I would like a set of 20" American racing cannons, but dont how wide to get the rim. I also want the biggest and widest A/T tire I can fit on it w/o rubbing. Anyone have any ideas? thanks

You should be able to run 20x10's with a 305/55R20 no problem. That tire is a 33x12.50R20

I changed my mind on the wheels and I have a couple more questions. I want to go with the Mazzi Hulk wheels instead. I am going to go with the 20x10, but what backspacing and offset do I need. Im confused on what backspacing and offset is, and what the measurements mean.

I would like to get a wide wheel, but I also dont want it to stick out 4 inches past the fender. I want the tire to stick out a couple inches or so. I like the wide tires with a big lip on the wheel.

Here is a picture of what I want, but that setup looks to big to fit my truck.
They are 20x12 mazzi hulks and 38x15.50x20 mickey thompson mtz's

Those would be way too wide on your truck. Mine are 13.5" wide and rub slightly on full turn with just a leveling kit. Oh and I have coils up front. You couldn't run those unless you lifted it.

PS. mine stick out a bit and I can't ever keep my truck clean because of it. Here's a pic:

Thanks. With the right offset, you might get 13.5's to fit, which I believe are available up to 37's. You might contact AYP tires (he's a vendor) and see what Scott suggests...
