18" or 20" What tire sizes (3" lift)

if i got a 3" lift set at out 2.5 - 3.0" and i wanted to go either 18 or 20" for rims what tire size can i go with?? ive checked out the tire size calc's but i dont understand them

i want an aggressive looking tire not a sporty low pro tire
i know most people are here dont like 20's, thats another thread...i just want to know tire size and brands i can look at
Will i have any rubbing issues?
also what width can i go with rims these trucks some i see are 18x10,18x8.5.... 20x9,20.8.5 where do i need on either 18s or 20's

thanks ahead guys!!!

Im running 18x9 Helo Maxx 6 with 285/60/18 tires. I have about 3" lift, and am pretty sure I can fit 285/65/18's without much rubbing.
285/60/18 = 32" 11.5 wide
285/65/18 = 33" 11.5 wide

Chris I have same wheels exactly and tired except mine are 285/65/r18 and they fit quite nicely with no rubbing after trimming a little peice of the front fender.

As for the 20" wheels I would reccommend against them if you dont like the low profile look. With a tire size of 285/60 its about 32" and with a 20" rim there will be very little rubber and wont look right. Run the 18" rim it looks real nice with a 32"/33" tire. I would only go 20" with a 35" or larget tire. thats just my 2 cents.

Rubbing dont bother me. If I decide to go with the 285/65/18's, I will most likely re gear also.

Hey Chris,

The width of the tire is what causes most of the rubbing issues. Many people run a 33 10.50 tire to avoid rubbing.

You wont need to re gear. Most people dont re gear with 33's either, but I tow, and like to mod my truck, so if I get 33's, it gives me the green light to re gear.
