35x14.50x20's?

I am getting ready to buy wheels/tires/lift soon and I'd like to get a 20 inch wheel. My question is will a 35x14.50x20 inch tire fit with the superlift suspension lift and a 3 inch body lift on a 05 fx4 level 2? If so, what backspacing should I get, Id like to keep the wheels tucked up under the truck as much as possible, Theres nothing more I hate than when the whole tire is outside of the fenders. Thanks

I think you will run into trouble with the 14.5" wide part. Don't know how much backspacing will be able to solve that problem.

Damn thats big. How much sidewall is that? Equivalent to a 15" rim with a 30" tire right?

I missed the fact that you wanted a body lift ontop of the superlift, my bad!

You will definitely NOT be able to get the tires completely under the wheelwell. With a 14.5" wide tire it's just not going to happen! Unless you only wanted to go straight. I agree though having it stick out all the way looks stupid.

Anyways, with the body lift it can probably be done. Can't say for sure what the backspacing would need to be though. Do you have the lifts on already? I would go and see if they can't test-fit some wheels for you or something.

I don't even know what type/brand of tire you can even get in that size. The more backspacing the better, 4+ inches,

I think its do-able with a BL+suspension lift

3.25 to 3.75 and that tire is going to stick out so bad it wont be funny.

I would go with 4 to 4.25

He is trying to get as much of the tire under the fenders as he can, so the more the better(to a point)

35x12.5x15 mounted on 15x10 wheels with 4 inches of backspacing do not rub the frame

then he needs 35x12.5x20s not 14.5. there is no way he will get it all under there without rubbing.

but then agian id rather have it sticking out than stuck in. as he will be more likly to roll it and the truck will be tall skiny and narrow.

IMO, 20's are a little overkill as far as wheel size on a ranger.

You'd better plan on getting some big brakes.

Dont those run about 300$+ per tire....



What rim width 11"? 12"?

What kind of tire? something interco?

Well they have a 36x13.5R20 irok...


Is this for Bling Bling or what?

Id budget 1200+ for your tires + whatever your rims are.

The more they stick out = the more bearing wear and wierd steering tire wear etc.

rims sucked inside the well on pizza cutters is THE GHEY

rollers skates look way better than a 4 wheeled bicycle.

get the least amount of backspacing/ offset that you can and ditch the lower valence.

since it's gonna be a street queen get a perdy bar fabbed up for the bumper and shiney skid plate to cover your exposed radiator and hoses

I understand that the tires are going to stick out some, which is totally fine with me...I just meant that I hate it when the majority of the tire is sticking out, But I also hate the offset on my stock Alcoas because they are tucked too much and it looks retarded, I want something in between is what Im trying to say...I def. am set on a 35 inch tire, the 20 inch wheel was just a thought, I may downsize to 17 or 18 so that I dont have to worry about the 14.50 inch wide tire...The tires I found in 35x14.50x20 is the Swamper IROK Radial...
