Wheel/Tire Size question.....

Hey fellas please help a brotha out! I've searched this forum for hours and can't find exactly what I'm looking for.

Im in the market for new wheels and tires for my 06 250. I'm going to put a 2.5" leveling kit up front and need to know what tire I can fit and what offset I need to get on the wheels.

Im going into a 20x10 wheel and it comes in either a -12mm or a -24mm offset. I want a toyo 35x12.5 m/t tire to wrap around them. First, will this fit? Second, which offset will be better? I like the look of the tire protruding from under the fender some, but not a ton.

I appreciate the help and advice fellas!

True 35" will rub on your mud flaps on tight turns, but not on the wheel-well, unless your suspension is flexed. For a street truck it will work. If you plan on going off-road, you need at least 4" of lift to be trouble-free. FWIW, the tires in my sig rub on my front flaps when turned tight. I did not expect that, given the tire diameter (just under 34").

A few years ago I posted a picture of 33" tires showing how tight it was up front on a turned wheel with stock or even a 2" front level. Rather than buy first curse later, find someone (friend, shop,etc) that has the tires and wheels on a vehicle and ask to fit one one your front end. Turn your wheels side to side and then imagine the arc of the suspension.
