Wheel Spacers for Zone 4'' lift

Hey guys I have a 2013 lariat with the OEM 20 inch rims. I am getting the 4'' Zone radius arm lift and want to keep the stock rims. I read in another post that a member had the stock 20 inch rims with 35 Nitto MTs and would get rubbing at full lock. My question would be what size is the Hub and what size spacers would I need to keep it from rubbing. I want to stay as close to inside the fender well as possible, but avoid rubbing. Thanks in advance!!

you will not rub with 35s on stock wheels. believe stock tire size is 34" so its not very far off and if you adding 4" lift your more then good

It is not the diameter that is the issue. Stock tires on 20" rims are 34.4" but under 11" wide. 35 inch tire generally means 12 1/2 inches wide that's where the rubbing will start.

To the OP, I hate wheel spacers and think they are a bad idea.

I highly recommend 295/65r20 (35.5x12). With a proper alignment with an adjustable trac bar you should have no rubbing.

The tire I said up there ^^^ has an E129 load rating (1000 lbs more per tire then 35x12.5)

Thanks I appreciate it. I was not set on the wheels spacers either. I have never had a set and have lifted all my trucks. I will just get new wheels and tires.

You can keep the stock 20's and just get new tires. I run 295/70R18 which is 34.5x12 with no issues on the stock wheels. I have 3/4" clearence of the radius arm at full lock on both sides.

Big L it was an excuse I didn't need to spend more money. I jumped on the BMF bandwagon. I might just use the stockers and the tires you suggested as well to be able to change it up from Black and Chrome.
