You'll need 4.5" backspacing, and then you'll need to trim some plastic in the fender well and possibly chop you cab mounts.

265/65/18/ if you don't want to trim anything. I would bet the 2011 they have on the lot rubs like hell at full lock or any time the suspension flexes.

I hope it works out for you, but +18 offset is way too much. The wheel will sit too far into the wheel well.

If it's an 8" wide wheel, you need around 0 offset. If it's a 9" wide wheel, you need -12mm. Those are 4.5" backspacing.

The +18 offset may actually make the wheel sit even further in than stock (depending on the wheel width).

what do you mean chop your cab mount?
so if one were to get 18s for the truck, 265/65/18 is the size without trimming? how would 18s fit without lifting the truck?

You can fit 4.75 backspacing as well with that set up. Although you'll rub less with a 4.5 or more on your cab mounts. Just remember the farther away the wheel is from the hub the more wear your placing on your bearings. I'd stick with a 4.5 if I were you and go no more or less. If you don't want to trim put a 265/70/R18 on it and you'll be fine but If you want to look cool just cut the plastic and put the 32's on it like you want. The cutting can be completed with a pocket knife and now no one will know you did it. Unless their a TW member

I was running 265/65/18 before I got my lift with no trimming. Pics are in my build if you click my sig.
