Question 2" alot in tire terms?

I was looking at the black KMC backseat rims (20"... sorry to the die-hard 17" offroad guys) wrapped in Nitto Mud Grapplers at about 33" or so till I jump the suspension up with a lift. My problem, or not, is that in 06 Ford decided to have a .4 offest on the rims. In 05 there wasn't an offset. (No- I don't know much about all this, but it does make some sense.) This would in turn push my tires out 2" on each side of the truck. So what's wrong with that? The guys at the shop talked me away from it, but I'm still thinking of it and get some Bushwacker, ATS, or some other fender flares and it'll look sweet! So 2" doesn't seem like much to me and if pictures can be seen it'd be great also. Thanks for the help, hope you're all safe in the slick and icy weather (atleast here in the east.)

Man I don't like you. You got a black truck, which I want. You're getting the black KMC backseats, which I want badly. And you have a brand new truck. Actually i'm kidding about not liking you. Anyway I can say that the 20's on 33's are going to look mighty funny but if you're intent on lifting it and putting some 35's or better yet 37's on then I can see why you're going to go the way you are. I'm not sure what exactly could be bad about getting the rims the way you explained. You have the coil over front end, so rubbing on the leaf springs (like my tires just barely do) is not going to happen. Fenders and stuff i'm not sure. I guess the only thing you can do is try it out, see what happens....if it don't work, i'll be glad to put those rims on my rig

I was going to be lifting it after a while like you said, I know it might look funny at first... but I am thinking long term. (i'm a buy your second one first kind of guy). and if you really would like, we can trade trucks for a weekend thank you for the compliments. I think I am going to give it a shot soon... put something under the tree ya know? haha enjoy

Yeah that's true. I kind of wish I would have bought 20's back when I got my 18's. But I don't think i'm going to lift my truck again for a long time if I even do it at all. I'm so gung ho on the performance thing that i'm spending all of my money on go parts ya know? Oh and I don't think the trade thing would go over too well...you might not get your truck back! Ha!
