About to pull the trigger on some new wheels...

TWG | The Wheel Group

These are these wheels I have decided on getting... maybe. I don't want the wheels/tires to stick out too far past the fenders... so hoping somebody might have some input on this.

the 20x10's have a -25 offset, and the 20x9's have a +10mm, I am leaning towards the 20x9's...

I am going to be running toyo open country 35x12.50 20 and wonder with the plus +10mm if I would have some rubbing issues? Plan on keeping the truck stock height... any thoughts?

Thanks!

get the +10 to say in side with the fenders. and you will rub the black inner fender, but thats nothing pulling it back or cutting it out won't fix. and this is a pic of a 20x9 with a +14 with the same tire your looking at.

Thanks for the info and the pic! I found out after talking to a couple of dealers today and I guess the Ion are discontinued and no one as them anymore... So I think I am going to go with the Ultra Predators, which I think you used to have on your truck, Think I am going to go with a 32mm back spacing, thinking that will put it within a quarter inch of stock!

Appreciate the help!

Ya ion is no longer making wheels from what i was told to a while back. I wanted a set of terminators.

the only problem i see with a +32 on the predators is there will be no lip maybe an 1". On the +14s i had a 2" lip and the wheel looked good with a little lip and still sat inside the fender so it didn't throw sh*t all over the side of my truck. But it's all up to what look you want.

I see what you are saying and didn't think about the lip and don't want to be throwing crap down the side of the truck all the time.... I am just worried about rubbing issues. I have no future plans to lift the truck, it won't fit in my garage if I do, it barley fits in there now... I've got some serious thinking to do, never thought buying wheels would be this tough! Again, Appreciate the info and pics - first time buying wheels and I don't want throw down over 2 grand down and hate them!

this is the only pic i got from the front. and i know what you mean about buying wheels. i've gone threw so many sets on my superduty's. to bad you weren't looking a few weeks ago you could of had mine for 700.00 shipped. and the only place you should rub is the inner fender

Man I wished I would have known!

Appreciate the insight, and you posting up all the pics for me. I am going to call the guy tomorrow and go with the +14, looks exactly like what I want.

BTW really like your truck, Always liked that color!

Thanks again

I think these rims are offset of +12mm, they are 20x9 with 4.5 BS. The black worked out very well in the end after I was going to swing a deal for rims, glad I stepped off of the chrome with the red color.
