Change it up?

Alright, I need some help here. I recently put on a 4.5 Icon, 20x10's with some 35" Toyo MT's. I just got my territory for work moved. I am now traveling about 250 miles a day round trip. I am worried that these tires are gonna get smoked with the quickness. Another problem is that the wheels have a 4.5 backspacing on them. This kicks up a lot of dirt on the truck. (Driving me INSANE). I am thinking of changing the wheel setup and need a little more information.

I am thinking of putting a TEI spacer in the front. I want to run a Nitto Terra Grappler. I think a 37" would do good. (Most people told me to run a 37" before I got the 35's) Also I want the wheels to tuck in the wells a little more so I don't get as much dirt and debris on the truck. The only thing I can find similar to what I want is 10.5's truck below.

I am trying to find out if the TEI will give me enough clearance in the front and if the 5" block in the back is enough. Also, what backspacing would I need to acquire the same look?

Or am I just getting the itch to do something else and need to keep the truck just the way it is. Here is the current setup.

I think the Toyo's Wear Great!

Just make sure you Rotate them as Suggested.

I've put 25,000 on them easily.

I bought my Truck with them, so I don't know how many miles are on 'em before me.

Just stay off the Throttle if you are "Tuned". They are Expensive to Burn Off!

Rims are too wide not cause of backset. If you don't want them to protrude go to a narrower rim/ tire. Some guys run 37's w/ only a level kit, but you won't be doing any offroading, thats for sure. Lastly Nittos will wear twice as fast as Toyos! If you have to have the wide rim /tire look investigate fender flares or chip guards.

I have seen alot of guys run a 37 on a small lift. I was wondering if I would achieve the same look as 10.5's with the TEI spacer and my 5" block. Just want to keep the same distance between the fenders and the 37's as I do with the 35's. I believe he is running a 6" Procomp but I don't know what block he has in the back. I don't know if I should also just kick up the back to a 6" block.

Any Suggestions?

IMO The BMF wheels have the perfect offset for lifts under 6" and they don't still out very far at all. I had them in the 20x9 flavor on 37's with just a leveling kit and no rubbing. I also just happen to have a set for sale in that size as well from when before I lifted my truck.

I looked but I don't. They aren't mounted anymore because I swapped them out for 20x10s

The TEI will add exactly 1' of lift so that would be easy to measure the clearance, only thing is you'll lose the rake if you don't bring the rear up respectively. Personally I like an 1" more in the rear regardless of the lift kit height used, just a nicer look in my opinion.
