Not to spam my photos but I remember @devildodge asking me to try to take a comparison shot of my truck when I got it built to where I liked it. I remembered I have a photo in a similar angle of my 2011 Lonestar CC That i had set up somewhat similarly.

Here's that comparison:
What yall have seen with the Readylift 3.5 inch lift, 20x10 -19 Offset Hostile Rages, and Nitto Ridge Grapplers 305/55 R20
View attachment 905

And my last truck: Bilstein 5100 set at 2.8, 18x9 XD ADDICTS -12 Offset, and Cooper ST MAXX 35/12.5 R20
View attachment 906


I'm still gonna get a picture of my truck side by side with my buddy's truck which is almost a carbon copy of my 2011, but this will do for now.
Youre truck is really sweet...Im going to do the same Readylift 3.5 set up set up but 295/60/20's

Trimming yes. Had to trim small metal tab that supports stick front mudflap. And modify mudflap with with heat gun. Very easy. Rubbing only in reverse at full turn. Been to cold here in jersey to get out there and mess with it. Nothing a heat gun can’t fix.

What is your offset? Do you have pics showing how far the tires stick out? Love the look, trying to keep my tires in the fenders with no rubbing and 20x10 if possible

I apologoze if you answered this already... I have pretty much the same set up on order (except 33x11.50x20) , and Fuel 20x9 Kranks... any rubbing or trimming necessary? Thanks in advance for the help!

What offset did you go with in the Kranks? No rubbing on the Vapors at +1 and with the 35x12.5. I would think that at 11.5 even with the stock offset of +19 you would still probably be clear because of the narrower tire.

I did the +1 as well... I REALLY wanted 20x10s... just dont want them sticking out. I fought that battle on a previous Super Duty... complete PITA. Thanks for the info! I was curious if I would have a trimming project in my future

Do you think you would have got rubbing if you went with the +1 off set? Im getting these exact same wheels, I would love the +1, but I haven't seen any evidence of no rubbing.

Just ordered a new Limited with the off road package that gives you an additional 1 inch lift. The limited is standard with the Air suspension. I don’t want to add any more lift or level and really want to go with the Fuel Assault 22x10’s with a -18 offset. Probably 305/55R20 tires. I saw a truck on the custom offsets site that had them on a Limited without the off road package and said nothing about any level or lift. I want to order these and have them ready for when my truck comes in but also don’t want to risk it not working. Any feedback as to if this will not rub would be appreciated. Thanks

I have that same wheel 20x10 -18, but with 295/60. The worst that you would have to deal with is some rubbing behind the tire. It will take you about 15 mins or so with a heat gun and wet rag to fix IF they rub. If that is the look you want, that amount of work shouldn’t turn you off.

Thanks Cmoar! Have any photos to share.
Yes! Photos please Cmoar! I'm in the same boat. Wanting 20x10's with air susp and have scoured the forums to see what fits and nothing is definitive. I'm not sure whether it's wise to do ANY lift or leveling kit with the air susp as I just don't wanna mess anything up.
Pics & thoughts (from experience)?!

Funny that you mention that tire size since that's exactly what I just put on my Limited. I do have the leveling links but I didn't want to make the truck too tall and make the ride bouncy, so i raised the front an inch and lowered the rear by 1/2 inch so it's almost totally level. Back still about 1/2 inch taller. Then i just put on 20x10 -18 offset Ballistic Rage wheels with 305/55/20 Nitto ridge grapplers. Absolutely love the look and the ride is still really nice and smooth. Im honestly pleasantly surprised how quiet the tires are as well. Love the look. And no rubbing at all. Only had wheels on for less than a week but so far so good.

I drove mine without a calibration for about two weeks after the tire swap then did the calibration and the difference was instantly noticeable. Buy from a vendor that you can return it to if you're not satisfied and return it if you don't like it.


What if i told you it updates the ECM to shift gears at a different RPM's based on different sized tires lol?
I wouldn’t need to get that if I have the pulsar correct? I’m pretty sure it has the ability to change tire sizes

Ok after skimming through about 12 pages I’m just going to ask. Has anyone here tried a 35” tire on a wheel with a -18 offset and 2” lift ? If so did it rub? I’m looking at a set of 20x10 -18s and would really like to put some 35” Ridge grapplers on.

Rob here we go.... You made me to repost all over again. I am sure you didn't go through all 12 pages. I am running 35 12.5 20 on 20x10 - 18 offset with 3.5 inch lift . I need trimming and some heat molding to fix rubbing. With 2 inch level you might need lot of trimming...

@Jmaloneydo Can you still utilize all 5 suspension settings after raising the front 1" and dropping rear by 1/2"?
