Looking to purchase new rims, what size can I get?

SO I'm looking for some new rims for my truck.

Don't really need to discuss brand or anything.

just need to know whats the biggest size I can get.

My truck at the moment has the stock rims and wheels as far as I know.

I have a 2" leveling kit on the front of my truck with lifted shocks for that lift and will be putting a 2" block lift in the back.

Whats the biggest/decent size rims and wheels that I can fit on my truck?

Or maybe someone can tell me how to calculate it so I can figure it out?

You guys should all run rims that are equivalent to the size of your signature pictures... so like some 38" rims would be sweet.


But seriously, on a 2wd like yours, you're going to be limited by tire size. Don't think you'll be able to clear 35s. Probably only going to be able to fit 33s.

Looks like i have basically the same truck. I put a 6" lift but with 35" and 18" wheels there is still plenty of room in the fender well. But the rims i got didnt have the option for an offset and the do rub on my front sway bar. So with only a 2" leveling kit the size of your RIMS you can go with will depend on the size tires your want. I dont think you will be able to go with 35" tires if you go with 20" rims. I think any larger than 18" wheels and you are really limiting yourself on tires. 18" will still give you plenty of options for tires, FWIW

Thanks for the feed back guys.

I forgot to mention the truck I have. I was thinking about it and just forget.

Its a 2003 7.3 2wd

Now, i no absolutely nothing about choosing rim size lol or tire size.

Also what exactly is an offset? some rims Ive been looking at says like 10mm offset.

I think I figured the offset out by reading one of your guys comments above.

The offset is so it doesn't rub on anything in side right? Kinda pushes the tire and rim out farther I'm assuming?

So maybe 20's or 18's with 33" tires may be something to look at?

irishluck, the short answer about offsets is: a Negative Offset means the base of the RIM where the lug holes are is centered closer to the inside of the rim causing the RIMS/Tires to stick outside wheel well more - The more the negative offset the more they stick out.

The RIMs I purchase did not come with the option of an offset, so there was only one type... So deciding on what RIMs you want will determine and limit you on what tires you can get AND Vise Versa.

buying RIMs and tires is no longer as simple as it used to be, lol hope this helps
