A little different question, DT...
Just purchased an 08 DC 2WD with 275/60/20 Falken ATs and a Rough Country leveling kit. Dealer has agreed to remove the cheap LK. Don't know the non-stock wheel specs but the tires are outside the fenders and there is a little rub on the mud flaps when I'm backing & turning, which I can live with. Will the tires rub worse after LK removal?
It may get a little worse, but it shouldn't be anything to worry about.

Hey DT,

I will be needing new tires really soon and thinking about putting on new rims. The crewman has been leveled to 3" with Bilstein 6112 with upgrade uca and 5160. The rims that I am eyeing the Fuel Coupler with a -14 offset. I would like to put on 295/70x18 instead of the stock 275/65x18. What are your recommendations?

Hi, JMN-

The low -12mm offset coupled with 295/70R-18 tires will most likely rub the body mount, so you'll have to modify it. If you're looking to avoid major modifications like that, I would go with a wheel that has an offset of +12mm or higher.

DT,

I am thinking about going with the Level 8 Tracker 18x9 wheels with a 12+ offset and 275/70/18 Cooper Discoverer ATP on my 2017 DC 4x4 truck.

Concerned about the 12+ offset. Seems like most people are recommending something between 18+ and 30+ for my truck.

Do you think I would have any vibration or rubbing issues with that package? Have any of your customers commented on or complained about that particular wheel on the 2014-2017 trucks? Thanks.

Thank you for reaching out and giving us the opportunity to serve you today, 5-20

The +12mm offset will sit a little further out when compared to a wheel with a +18mm offset or +30mm offset, but as long as the wheel is center on the hub during installation and the tire/wheel assembly is balanced correctly, you shouldn't run into a vibration issues.

With regard to rubbing, as long as you do not go larger than 275/70R-18, the only place you'll have rubbing is on the front mud flap, which you can easily trim or remove.

New shoes for 07' Tundra

3/1 ready lift, 295/60 R20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers, 9x20 fuel sledge +20 offset. I did a ton of tundratalk forum browsing to decide between the +1 offset or the +20. Ended up going with the +20 the tires stick out about 1.75" from the fender, just the stance I was looking for! I had to remove the front fender liner from the front of the wheel well so the tires don't rub. They still rub a bit at full turn on the mudflap but nothing major. Had to wait 9 weeks for my tires to come in but worth it in the end I think.

DT,
I am buying a 2018 Tundra Plantinum 4x4 this week. I want to upgrade the factory tires and wheels. I am planing on doing a leveling kit (2inch in front only).


I am thinking about going with the FUEL Vapor 20x9 (5x150) wheels with 295/65/20 or 305/55/20 Cooper Discoverer(ATP or AT3) What offset do i need to get the wheels? The vapor comes in -18,1,20,35 offsets.

How about if instead i get Toyo Open Country II in the same sizes?

You want +35 offset to minimize rubbing. Stock is +60.

295/65s are nominally 35.1" dia and will be hard to fit, while 305/55 is only 33.2". 295/60s are a better size (33.9") and should fit with minimal plastic work.

rruff hit the nail on the head with his reply - only thing I'll add is that you may need to trim the skid plate (if applicable) and remove the front mud flaps with either tire size.

With regard to vibration, as long as the tires are balanced and the wheels are bolted to the vehicle correctly, I would not anticipate an issue. Just keep in mind that All-Terrain tires like the models mentioned are more aggressive than what comes factory, so they may not ride as smooth.

So I’m going to need tires soon on my 2012 crewmax. Bilstein 5100s at all corners, middle setting in the front. Currently running terra Grappler g2s in 285/55/20 on method nv’s, +25 offset. I’m thinking of going to Cooper STT PROs in LT295/55/20 but I’m curious if you think I’ll have any rubbing issues or if I should pick another size to avoid rubbing. Thanks.

What is your wheel offset? Are you opposed to removing mudflaps?

It’s +25 on my wheel. Mudflaps are staying.

The 295/55R-20 size with your wheels may rub the mud flaps. How much clearance do you have now with your 285's?

There is no way to be sure. Alignment moves the tire fore and aft in the wheelwell so some may hit and some won't. Can't safely go bigger than stock if you want to be sure of no rub when hitting bumps, and you want to keep all the plastic as is.

Very true, and to add to that, not all tires run the same in size - just like shoes.

I’d say I have an inch at almost full lock front and back of the wheel on the center of mudflaps.

Compress your suspension a few inches and check again.

Almost an inch and that's with worn tires. The 295/55R-20 will be ~1/2-inch taller than what you're running now, so it's going to be close! If you do not want to trim or remove the mud flaps, you may want to consider sticking with the size you have now, though, the STT Pro is not currently offered in 285/55R-20.

Some minor trimming I’m okay with I just don’t want to remove them. Thanks for the help. I might just have to choose something else or hope they make a 285-55-20.

Discount Tire,

First, thank you for all your bring to the table here.

Secondly, I have a question. I have a 2015 Tundra double cab 4x4 (no fender flares) with the Lowrange Offroad 3/1 leveling kit. I'm looking at 20x9 rims with a +12 offset. How far will that stick out the side of the truck? Will it look too wide? Also, what size tire do you recommend?

Thanks!!
