    Anyone done it? From looking through responses to previous tire size questions it seems even my 285/75/16's (32.8") wouldn't fit, but they do.

    Wishful thinking, and I'm not even sure I would like them, but wondering if I can put these on my hoe. A dealer will snap these up soon and ask $1500 for them like every other decent set in my area.

    Sorry for the reposted question. Trying to get some attention.

    I don't know if they'll fit or not- but you might check the gallery on Custom Offsets' website. There is a ton of information on what fits, what doesn't, what trimming has to be done, etc. I'd imagine it fitting vs not fitting would come down to what offset those wheels have.

    Thanks for the reply. After looking at pics of trucks w 6" lifts and 35's I must be on drugs, or need some. Measuring up the wheelwell looks like they could work, but I'm pretty sure I'd have to do some trimming of the fender flares at minimum.

    Wishful thinking I guess. A new set of tires cost me almost $1k last time and I need new ones again so I'm trying to get some better rims into the equation. I think I'm just going to have to keep looking/waiting.

    I just found them online. Have a -24mm offset

    Also don't appear to make a 20x12 so I think they may be 20x10

    You might check out their youtube channel as well. They do wheel/tire packages and whatnot. I should have bought my spacers thru them. Live and learn.

    I took a better look at custom offsets and it is very useful, thank you.

    A couple people running 35's with some trimming and rubbing.

    Most people with a leveling kit running 33's which is basically what I have now.

    What worries me most would be the offset. Can't seem to find one with fender flares and -24. Without the flares it's not a good look imo.

    What an excellent resource. Thanks again.

    I'd like to move up to a 33x12.5x tire but I can't get them for my 16" rims.

    After much deliberation i think 17-18" rims look best to keep the 4x4 look. 20's will look too big imo.

    Found these 18's for $800 they have good tires but just not what I want on them. Buying used is a PIA but I'm looking at about $3k for what I'd like new and it's hard to justify that when my current tires are fine but one has a slow leak i a spot that can't be repaired.

    Any opinions?

    Guess I'm about 15 years too late for these questions. A 305/70R16 is basically a 33x12.5. Thanks for all the input.
