    Hi Lee,

    To get the tires to stick out at least a couple of inches, you need a wheel with a min. of 0 to -12mm offset, and a tire that is at least 12- to 12.3 inches wide on a 18x9 or 20x9 wheel. With the Rancho, you can safely go as high as 35-inch tall tires with that setup. You can go taller but narrower (up tp 35.5 inches tall) but they won't stick out as much. If you go both wide (+12.5 inches) or too tall (+35.5 inches) then you will have some major trimming especially if you go with a more negative offset wheel. Just too many combinations that will fit, or will fit with some trimming, to mention them all. A safe bet to get the look you stated is my 09 FX4 with 35x12.5R18 BFG KM2s (34.8 inches tall) and 12.1 inches wide on 18x9 wheels with -12mm offset. Anything around that size between 0mm and -12mm offset should work fine with only minor trimming if at all. If you want to be closer to the Bushwacker depth, go with a more positive wheel between 0 to +14mm offset.

    Sorry for the delay. Yes, you'll be fine mounting a 35x12.50 tire to the stock 18" rim. Many places won't do it though. Make sure you go to a truck shop that knows whay they are doing. Anytime to put a tire on a rim that's a little small you do run a risk, but I've thrashed my truck for 1.5yrs with that setup with no issues.
