Wheels, Lift and Stuff

Went to my local 4WP for some info on a set of XD Monster 20x10 wheels (Fuel Octane 20x9 or 20x10 as an alternative) and Toyo OC MT 35x12.50 tires and they recommended a Pro Comp Nitro Kit 3.5" Suspension Kit as well. Both wheels have a -12 offset, the Fuel also has a -24, backspacing runs from 4-4.5". Is it really necessary for a 3" lift to fit 35's? Seems like a bit of overkill, as obviously no lift at all would be great.

What do you guys think?

They recommend procomp because they own them the last time I checked. Procomp sucks terribly. Nickname is Procrap.

I think on the 6.4 you can fit them on stock height if the tire width and offset is right. Worst case, a 2.5" leveling kit.

I wouldn't go any wider than a 0 offset on stock height or 2.5" leveling kit. -12 is for like 6 inch lifts and -25 is for 8 inch. Ofcourse, some people disagree slightly but -25 offset on a stock truck or a 2.5" will look plain stupid.

Check out Eagle alloys. They just came out with some real nice lookin wheels. Made in America. Won't look like crap in 6 months like those China wheels.

Also, I'd do your research on here instead of 4 wheel parts in my opinion. I'm not speaking for all of them, but out of all the ones I've been to, the employees are clueless.
Hope this helps!

Yeah, it's in the sig, but I have a 2010 Crew Cab with 18" wheels, 275/70 tires stock. I just wish the stock wheels were a little wider to get the 12.50 to fit right.

I edited my first post because I forgot it said 6.4 at the top of the thread. Some people run 12.5 tires on stock wheels without a problem but it does make me nervous. I've seen it quite a bit though.

I think the stock wheels are 20x8. If you are going to run 35's on a stock height truck I would stick with stock wheels, I have heard of rubbing with aftermarket, but it all depends on your offset and backspacing. If you are going to run a 2.5" leveling kit then you have some more options for wheels because of the extra clearance. 2" is plenty, 2.5" looks best with 35's to me. a 3"+ just looks to tall for 35's but alot of people do it. My truck is running 35's on 2.5" Top gun Leveling kit. As far as leveling kits go I would look into a progressive rate spring like the Top gun system or Icon.
