I like Nitto/Toyo. Do you know what offset/backspacing you need?

I believe the needed backspacing is -24. Not 100% sure as most people run 12.50 wide tires but I am looking for more of a "bulldog" stance.

The stock offset is +40. So going to a -24 is moving centerline of the wheel out 2 1/2". Plus 1/2 the extra width compared to stock. That will be a wide stance!

The largest (highest/most positive) offset you could fit (without rubbing the radius arm) is a +10.

Re: xd strike and 35s

You should be just fine with that set up. Most 20x10 wheels will be a- 24. That is exactly what most lift manufacturers require for offset on that truck when it's lifted. A -24 on a 10 is 4-1/2" back space. That's perfect for a 4" lift with 35's. It's the same exact backspacing as a 20x9 with a -12. The extra inch in the wheel will be to the outside though since the bs is the same. You'll run into a little rubbing possibly on the inner fender well and the front bumper lower valance. No big deal though easily trimmed and pulled back.
I have 35/13.50/20 Cooper stt's on my truck.... they are ok..... about half tread left and I have 26,000 miles on them.
Hands down the best lasting mud there is out there is the Toyo open country muds. It's not even close.
I got 72,000 miles out of my last set of Toyos and they will easily still pass inspection. The only reason I got these coopers on there now is, I work at a 4x4 shop, so I got these for $240 ea. For that price I had to try them out. My next set with be back to Toyo though..... and my next set..... and the set after that.......and the set after that...... lol

Re: xd strike and 35s

BTW to be honest....don't get going up on the fact that Cooper is a 13.50 since all of Toyos and Nittos 12.50's measure roughly 13.00-13.50 wide anyway. I see no difference in width in my Coopers to my Toyos.

yeah I had noticed that. Some brands list the tire as a 12.50 but when you look at the specs some are over 13in in width...I wasnt sure if different makers measure different locations or what the descrepency was caused frrom, Thanks a ton for the advice.

I believe I will be going with the 20x10 strikes and toyo open country MT. I have a set of coopers sst and I like the lack of noise and I am getting ok wear myself, could be better but...
