The best tire recommendation for you depends upon what you do with your truck. Do you haul or tow heavy? What type of conditions are you in (snow, mud, rock, all highway)? And what type of tire look do you want? Tall and skinny, short and wide, +2 over factory?

If you dont want to rub, you need to stay with the OEM wheels or one with a similar backspacing. You also need to stay at a width of about 305mm or less. One great size for leveled trucks with OEM wheels is 285/75/18. It equates to 34.8" tall by 11" wide. You may want to look at the new Toyo AT II. They are a bit more aggresive than the previous versions, but still look like they would have good longevity. Another popular option is the Goodyear Duratrac

If you already knew what you were going to get, why did you ask for help? Scanj0 is telling you what is closer to a stock sized tire to prevent rubbing, but your set on a 13" wide tire on a +40 offset that is going to rub for sure.

OP I need to jack your thread real quick. lol Any of you guys have any feed back on 20X12 with a -44 offset? Another guy said he runs 12.50s on a 12" wide wheel with no issues. Im looking for more feed back on that, if it will cause the tire to wear out faster, if I need to worry about any rubbing, and if it will effect my ability to tow.
