    Hey guys,

    Got a 3" Tuff Country lift for Christmas, and I am putting it on Saturday. I am about to order my wheels and tires so that they get here by Friday, but I dont know what sizes to get.

    Im wanting to get 18" XD Monsters wrapped with Nitto Trail Grapplers.

    Talked to a guy on this forum that has the same lift, with monsters and 285/65r18 grapplers, and he said they fit with minor trimming and he loved it. Big thanks to him for bearing with all my questions and helping me out.

    Looking to buy from 4wheelonline.com, they have the cheapest prices I've seen since I've been looking and I know they can get them in before Friday if I order by the end of tomorrow. Of course, suggestions on other places to order from are welcome.

    I can get 295/70r18 for $8 more. How much of a size difference would it be and do yall still think they will fit? Which one would look better? Pics are welcome.

    Also, which rim size should I get? - http://4wheelonline.com/KMC_XD778_Monster_Wheels_Matte_Black.136395.1464513.
    Have no idea what all the spacing stuff means. :eek:

    Thanks,
    Danny

    Okay, I think I am just going to play it safe and go with the 285/65r18s.

    Would deffinitely want the bigger tire if yall think its possible though. If I had enough backspacing, could I clear that tire? That is if I am even understanding backspacing right from the few posts I have been reading.

    With the smallers tires, what spacing should I get? I like the more agressive look where they stick out a little more.

    Wanting to place the order asap.

    Thanks guys,
    Danny

    4.5" backspacing -12mm offset might still need to trim, and possibly cab mount chop

    Should I get the first option "18x9; -12mm; 4.53" or the one later one "18x9; 6x135/5.5; -12mm; 4.53"

    Im assuming the second " x " is the lug set-up?

    If not there are a couple more 4.53 options like 5 x something, but Im assuming those are 5 lugs?

    Thanks so much for helping me out and sorry if Im being pushy, just getting stressed as my dad's brothers are coming over Saturday for a weekend project of working on the truck and need to get these in.

    The bolt pattern for our trucks should be 6x5.5 or 6x1.39.7. I do not see it listed under their drop down menu. 18x9 with a -12mm offset should work, but you have to do some plastic trimming and possibly a CMC mod.

    Thanks for all the help! Just to make double sure one last time, the first option with 4.53 backspacing and -12mm is the best option to go with?

    If you are going to run 285s then yes. Just make sure the bolt pattern is correct. If you are unsure call the company you plan to order from

    The first option doesn't list a bolt pattern so I'm not sure what that will fit. I would call or order from a place that has an accurate listing.
