After tons of research and trying to figure out the look I'm after, I pulled the trigger on new wheels and tires last week. Ordered a set of 20x10 (-19 offset) Gear Alloy 726MB wheels and 295/55 Toyo MT's. I love the leveled look and it's practical for me so I think it will stay this way for a while rather than lifting it.

I ordered the package through Discount Tire as they have treated me right in the past and price-matched the best I could find online.

The previous owner leveled the truck and trimmed the plastic part of the valance, as well as some of the front of the fender liner. I had Discount test fit one and sure enough, more trimming was needed so I threw them in the bed and took them home. The only place they rubbed was at the back of the fender with the wheel cranked about 80%. Rather than beating the sheet metal I just decided to cut off the small piece that was causing the problem. With that done and the e-brake cable and fender liner zip-tied back, there is no rubbing.

I'm really happy with how it turned out! The fit and finish of the wheels is awesome and they took very little weight to balance. I'm glad I went with the 295's instead of 33x12.5's, I think the 12.5's would have been really tight. Big thanks to b16gsr for his advice on fitment!

Thanks guys!

I like those wheels! How do you like the toyos?
First time trying them, but so far so good! I had Pro-Comp X-Terrain's and BFG KM2's on my last truck and these seem to be the quietest of the bunch. They are really heavy, though, so we'll see what kind of hit in mileage I take. They ride nice, but I do notice a bit of the squirmy feel a lot of people talk about with new Toyo's/Nitto's. Hopefully that goes away once they get some miles on them.

What did that package run you through Discount if you don't mind me asking?
