    Welcome to TW!

    Here's a handy chart that helps you convert width and offset to backspacing (about 1/3rd down the page)...the page also explains the difference between the two.
    https://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html

    On stock suspension, the biggest you'll be able to fit for tires is 265/65/18 or 265/70/17. Those are 32's. they will fit fine if you get rims with 4.5" to 5.5" backspacing.

    If you want to go bigger than that, you can fit 33's (285/65/18 or 285/70/17) with a 3" lift, rims with 4.5" backspacing, and trimming some plastic. You may also have to chop to cab mount if you go this route. sounds like a big deal but a lot of people on here are running that setup.

    Let me know if you have any more questions.

    4.5 would stick out further.

    the smaller thr backspacing, they more they will stick out.

    Don't worry about offset alone. Use the rim width AND offset to calculate the backspacing to see if you are good to go.

    Damn Jamie that's twice you beat me in one thread! I'm out of here for fear of an embarrassing trifecta.
