I'm going to lift my 2006 6.0 with a rough country 4-4.5" lift. For my new wheels/tires... I was thinking 20" wheels, on 34"-35" tires....
I was going for a black and machined face wheel......I love the Helo 835, but they only come in a positive offset...

Having said that, what offset should I shoot for with that setup (4" lift, 20" on 35"s)? I was looking at -12? what do ya'll think

Tires.....any particular brand? I want them somewhat aggressive looking

35's and 18's ride best, you need + Offset which is really tucked in, not out. This is why you can run factory 8" wheels or aftermarket 9" and a level kit with 35's you want +12 - +18 it will keep you from trimming the fender liners.

Check out Carli or DR ICON suspension systems they're pricey but carry a huge resale value and in anyone's opinion will out ride a Rancho Lift any day or night. If you're set on Ranch Oh! at a minimum change out the shocks to Bilsteins 5100's.

The best thing you could do would be to ride in a truck with the above suspensions before you make a costly mistake and have something you hate to drive or do twice.

Toyo AT's or the new Pricey Mickey T's Baja ATZ P3 are worth every penny if driven more on the highway or town than off road.

Any Mud Terrain tire is going to be louder and get less than mileage out of the set.

I run Weld wheels 20x 8.5 with a -6mm offset. That pushes the wheel out a tad when using 35"s.
