Ok so I suck with the math and schematics of rim and tire combos so I'm turning to the community for help. I need new tires so I've decided to upgrade the rims as well. I love the look of the XD Monsters in black, and I'm guessing I should go with 20" because my stocks are 20" now (Harley Davidson). I don't run my truck in the mud but I love the rough mud tire look so I'm willing to sacrifice a little road noise for the look. I have, but haven't installed yet, a bilstein 2.5" level kit that I'm waiting to install with the new rim/tire package.
I don't know if I should go with 35's or 37's, and what the advantage/disadvantage of either one is. I do hot rod my truck a little bit here and there so I'm guessing the 37's would put more stress on the tranny? I don't plan on doing a lift kit since they are pretty pricey. Just want the truck to sit a bit taller and want the mud tire look. I only tow an 18' boat for now, and carry an atv in the bed now and then, so no heavy hauling. Also, what rim size would be best as far as backspacing or offset? I want the rim/tire to stick out about an inch from the wheel well, but not so far that I sling rocks and dirt down the side of the truck every day. I was also thinking of purchasing the bilsteins for the rear and a steering stabilizer kit if needed.
Thanks in advance.
