I know this is a beat to death question, but I've been looking a long time and can't find an answer.

I found a set of wheels and tires that are exactly what I'm looking for, used.

Ok, I have a 2008 ram 1500 quad cab big horn 4wd. It is leveled. The wheels are 20 x 10 -25 offset with 295/60 20 copper muds.

I'm worried that they'll rub more than I can trim. And yes, I know they'll stick out quite a bit. If anyone has any pictures, that would be great as well.

They won't stick out as much as you think I have a 2001 with -24 and they barely stick out yours will stick out maybe 3" or less and they might not even run at all

Thanks for the reply. I'm leaning towards getting them. I have looked online a lot and seen a few with the same sizes that fit. Most even say with no rub, but who knows

You'll be fine they'll work fine with literally little to no run at all if any

I actually like them sticking out. And I don't mind trimming at all if need be, just don't want to rip my fender off or not get them to fit at all.

I'm pulling the trigger on em, but have to wait for the guy to get his new set in. More time to contemplate I guess lol.

Thanks for the replies and the pic. I'll post what happens in a couple weeks when I get them.

You can definitely make them fit. It will require trimming but it will work.

I have srt10 22x10 -24 offset rims with 305/45/22 at's and I can say I ended up putting 1" bora wheel spacers on, as the rim itself due to 22" was 1/4" from suspension, ran like that for a year but was always uneasy about the clearance. With 20" then the tire would be rubbing the suspension with same specs.
