Max wheel and tire size on stock ride height..

Hey guys,

So I have a few questions..

1. What is widest 20" wheel you can fit on the stock ride height? I know stock is 20x8" for my truck, would a 20x10" wheel fit stock ride height?

2. What is the widest tire I can fit on the stock ride height? Depending on width ofcoarse.. I would figure a 295 (stock tire height) as well.. And on a 20x10" something around those lines as well..

I'm not looking to lift my truck; well atleast I jump back and forth on it I should say. I commute 90+ miles a day so MPG does matter to me so lifting it kinda messes with that.

Any input would be great!! Thank you in advance

yes , but you will be limited on tire size. And you will have to watch the offset
2. What is the widest tire I can fit on the stock ride height? Depending on width ofcoarse.. I would figure a 295 (stock tire height) as well.. And on a 20x10" something around those lines as well..
you can easily fit 35x13.50 on stock 20's Or 37x12.50 with a level kit

You def would not want to put 13.50's on a stock wheel that's only 8" wide IMO

Maybe he meant 12.5? I also see the Toyo has a 295/65/20 that'll probably work 35.4" tall for the stock wheel.. Then they have the 315 or the 35x12.5R20

Nope I meant 13.50. I ran 35x13.50 MT baja claws for a year and a half on stock wheels, no issues at all. There just fine. Many people have and do.

They say that for liability reasons. Same reason lift companies say you can only run such and such tire. They can't say a bigger tire fits then some guy puts them on, turns a corner and tears his fender then tries to sue. But in reality with a bit of trimming and such you can run bigger. There are dumb people out there.

Awesome!! Good to know. Yea I read up on I think powerstrokearmy.com or something like that.. They have a great thread on tires and wheels and alot of guys just ziptie the the inner fender liner and are fine. So that's probably what I'm going to go with..

Yes, you can do that as well as space out the front bumper with washers about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch for more clearance there . Or buy the BDS spacer kit for $40
