Leveled with 305/50R20's

Recommended Posts

305/50/20 with 20x9 +1 offset and 2.5 RC.

 

I went with this size because I wanted NO chance of rubbing and an accurate speedo. I think when comes time to replace them I might go with 295/55 so I get a bit taller or maybe 305/55 as I believe that MIGHT fit without having to trim. Overall I am very happy with the setup.

Can you elaborate on "accurate speedo" TIA

the diameter of the 305/50/20 is only slightly taller than the stock tire diameter on these trucks, so when I am traveling and the speedo says 60 I am going 60.8 and when the speedo says 80 I am going 81.

 

with 305/55/20's speedo says 60 but the truck is actually going 63, speedo says 80, going 84. so it also messes up the odometer too.

 

now this can be fixed with a programmer though.
