    I'm researching some wheels and tires and was wondering if anyone has had any clearance issues as far as a little taller tire . I was thinking of 20x9 wheels after a leveling kit . Or should I ask the place that is doing the leveling on recommendations ?

    Welcome to the forum. Shouldn’t be an issue but what do you mean by a little taller? What tire size are you thinking?

    Welcome to the Forum from NH.

    On my 07, I'm running 305/50-x20 tires with a 20x8.5 stock wheel. The suspension has not been lifted or leveled, and I have no rubbing. The clearances are close, however, so I'm not sure that a higher or wider tire could be used without some leveling or lifting.

    Other folks will chime in with their actual experiences.

    I was looking at this size LT275/55R20 so a little taller than this.

    Your tire would be a little over an inch narrower but have the same sidewalk as Joseph’s so you should be good. You can use the tire size calculator to see other options.

    This is the tire size calculator that I like, as it gives you the opportunity to plug in current actual clearances from the suspension components and fender for your current tire size, and then project/estimate those critical clearance changes for different tire sizes.

    This works. It accurately predicted where my 22X9_24mm wheels with 285/45-22 tires would rub.

    On my 07, the OEM 20x8.5 wheel offset is 31mm.
