I have a PR 4x4 that came with 265/60 20s. The offset of the stock wheel is +41.

I've been reading everyone's posts, looking at pics, etc. I would like to go to either a 285/60/20 or possibly even a 305/55/20. Based upon looking, I'm not sure there is quite enough room to do that on the stock wheels, and the stock wheels are 7.5 wide anyway so it's a bit of a stretch.

By my calculations, to keep the same inside clearance with a 9" wide wheel, I would need a +16 offset. KMC's sight says the Buck 20x9 has a +18 offset which would be really close (although tirerack.com shows it to be a 0).

With a +18 vs. the +41 stock wheel, and with the wheel being 1.5" wider than stock anyway. I believe the outside edge of the proposed wheel would stick out right around 1.75" more than the stock wheel, which would look about right without adding additional flares, etc.

I also think the additional inside room would give me inside clearance. Based on just looking at the tires and clearances I have now, I think either the 285s or the 305s would work. The 285s are a little larger diameter (about an inch as I recall) but the 305s are only slightly larger in diameter than stock.

I'm not seeing where I would get all the rubbing I'm seeing people on here seem to be getting and not sure why I would have to be trimming anything.

Do you guys think the above would work without trimming? If not, what am I missing about this? Thanks in advance for the help.

the farther you push the wheels away from the hub, the greater chance of the tire rubbing at the fender/back side of the bumper depending on which way you're turning. It will give you more clearance for a wider tire to not rub the spindle though. a 305/55/20 will look really good though.


if your calcs are correct a 1.75 wider stance is a lot without adding any leveling kit. You should try it and just trim if you need to cause its gonna look awesome.

Appreciate the feed back, all of that makes sense. Based on another thread here there seems to be some minor trimming done using a +18 offset even with the 285s which surprises me frankly. Maybe I need to consider a minimal lift/level like the rough country to help with that. I'd really like to go 305s if I can make it work.
