Default Tire size help needed..!
Looking to go from 285/75/16 to 275/60/20 or 305/55/20 or 275/65/20 but am concerned I may run into rubbing issues while at full suspension articulation if I don't get the offset/backspace just right. I have a 01 4x4 with 2" spacer with new coils and shocks in the front and stock setup in the rear

Can anyone tell me what the biggest tire is that will not run with a 20" rims? I've searched around the sight but can't find too much info on a situation like mine. Thanks!

As far as tires I am looking at Duatrac in load range C with those 20" rims. Or should I get with E?
