Alright, I have to say that I didn't
make it through all of the posts (tried, but failed) and at some points it made sense and then I would get all confused again. Anyway, though I am a member of the female gender, much like some dude in some thread (this one?) said, a diagram works to explain things in the best way.
Just saying. Ahem.
So- I went to one of the sites *first* posted
which helped to compare tire/rim sizes and convert metric to US standard; then I went to one posted soon after
--and let me tell you, ALL the info anyone needs is between these two sites.
And the second one has pretty little diagrams that adjust according to your inputs!
The only thing we need now is a calculator that takes into account if you are adding a lift kit--though, it doesn't take much thinking to figure that out, methinks. For instance, in my calculations, my new rims with the stock tires will move the wheels out 0.7" (not a problem, I measured). If I got new tires before getting a lift, I would fill out 13mm more of wheel well (according to rimsntires). Not a problem for my truck, again. Ta-da!

Don't be silly. You're not confused because you're a girl...
