I'm going to buy new tires for my truck soon. My wheels are 20x9 XD SPY's, they have a -12 offset so they stick out kind of wide. I currently run 285/55s and had some rubbing at first until I took a sawzall to it. My question is, what size should I go back with? I'm debating between 275/60, 285/55, and 295/55. Can you all post some pictures of these setups? And give some good honest reviews on my options. Thanks alot

Been happy with my Nitto TerraGraps. I also run a 285-55-20 and they fit perfect, after a little/lot of trimming.

Honestly don't waste your $$ on a leveling kit... All they do is let you crank the bars a little further which is super bad for front end components and the ride is gonna suck!! If you want the truck taller, invest in a real lift.

Thanks for the picture, your truck looks killer. I've been reading a lot of forums and I believe I'm going to stick with the 285's. Might add some wheels spacers to the rear for a better stance.

Will the 295's rub on the old body style?

Yes. I have 295's. 1.5" blocks in the rear and Front cranked with trimming. It's tight but works.

They might rub a little, I can't say for sure but I think the older body style had more room in the fender well than the LMM. To be honest, I would have went with a 285 if they had the Trail Grapplers in that size, but I am happy with how the 295s look and I had to do the large fender mod to make them work.

^... One huge difference +18 offset is a game changer compared to a -12.

It's a decent difference, yes-but running spacers on all four corners changes pokes them back out a good bit much where zero or negative offset wheels would sit.
