OK guys, I finally pulled the trigger! On order from the local tire shop: qty 4 20x9 Ultra Marvericks and qty 4 305/55R20E Nitto Terra Grapplers. Wheels have 5.75" BS / +18mm OS. Torsion bars are cranked with Cognito UCA's, NorCal Nick "large" fender mod complete....think I'm all ready to go! I appreciate everyone's knowledge here and saving me trials and tribulations on my own! There are plenty of you that seem to be running similiar setups as me with NO rubbing, so I hope my truck will turn out the same! I'm upgrading from 285/65R18's on 18x9 HELO's (don't know the BS/OS specs). I figure I can turn the T-bars a few more turns if I have any rubbing issues. I'll post pics after the install. Thanks again for everyones' posting!!

I think you will like 305/55R20. I love them, but i'm going 35s next time.

Thanks! Are your Novacaines similiar in BS/OS to what my Mavericks are? Did you just have to level it out to get away with no rubbing?

Mine are the 20x9, they are supposed to make it easier to fit under a leveled truck. The BMFs in 20x10 are 4.75 Backspace with a -19 Offset if that helps any.

I always add them to Photobucket and then post them. I am not the most computer savy person there is. There is probably another way, but this one works for me.

They tire store phoned yesterday to tell me that there had been a "delay": tires should now arrive mon/tue and wheels should arrive tue/wed next week. :mad:...so no tire install this weekend.

On a better note, I'm getting ready to head to the auto hobby shop and intall my Conginto pitman/idler arm braces :eek:
