Hi Guys, first post on the forum. I've never done aftermarket wheels before and I'm looking for some advice. Thanks in advance for any help.


What I'm Working With:
  • Stock 20x9 rims with factory tires
  • 1642115607118.png
  • Non-Off Road Package
  • Air Ride
And I want to keep the stock look while getting better snow performance with bigger tires. I'm leaning towards BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A KO2 tires (open to suggestions of exact tires that would work). To fit larger tires I've ordered 1.5" wheel spacers. This should take me from the stock +19 Offset to an effective -19 Offset. With that in mind, what's the largest KO2 I can fit (No trimming)?


Options From tiresize.com:
  1. LT 285/65R20 (34.5x11.5)
  2. LT 275/65R20 (34x11)
  3. LT 295/60R20 (33.9x11.8)
  4. LT 285/60R20 (33.5x11.5)
  5. LT 305/55R20 (33.2x12.4)
These are listed in order of preference. If anyone can confirm that option #1 will fit, then that's what I'll go with. I welcome any and all feedback! Like if I should consider weight of tire for mpg, or cost, or if you think they will look too big or anything let me know what you think.

you can run all of those options except the 305/55r20 with OUT the spacers. :) it's a width issue and the 295-275 widths will all clear the upper control arms without spacers. At 305 and the 12.50 tires you may or may not need spacers. I'm running 35x12.50R20 on my factory wheels without any spacers. :)

Thanks Nick! You have the ORP, I'm guessing I couldn't fit 35x12.5R20 without it? I think I'll be just as happy with the 11.5" wide as the 12.5" wide.

Correct now if you get the leveling brackets for it you can but you will most likely need to run spacers. :) I'd do the lvl lift, put some 35x12.50's on those rims see if the tire clears the upper control arm, if it does great! If it doesn't then put the spacers on and enjoy. :)
