Default What rims and tires for a 4.5 inch lift

I need some help I have a 4.5 inch rough country lift with dinky little 305 tires and stock rims. I wana Mt tire ive been looking at the discovers, mickey mts, and the nitto muds. I also wana get a new set of offset rims but dont know alot about the different offsets. I would like the tires to stick out maybe an inch and a half at the most but want it to look good as well. I dont wana spend a whole lot of money on rims and dont like anything to flashy. I have a maroon colour truck and would like some ideas. thanks guys.

Factory backspace is 5.5 and most aftermarket rims ar 4.5 so that will def give you the look you want. Tire sizes from 35-37 and nitto MUDs are beyond annoying loud...

Thanks man, no they are 0 offset with a 4.5" backspacing and they are 17x8. But these wheels were discontinued so I bought mine on ebay so whatever wheels are left online are the last ones you can get.

Ok right on. Would you be able to fit 35x13.50 on your chev? Or would ou need a 17x9 rim? Do you think 37 would go under a 4.5 inch lift or would they rub?

Well fords wheel wells are alittle bigger than chevy but I think you would need a 6" lift for the 37's I think they would rub pretty bad but you should be ok with the 13.50's, a 17x9 might be better than a 17x8 but it should work fine, unless a tire shop tell's you differently. Hope this helps

Ok thanks alot guys. Ya I think I would get 17x9 rims with the 13.50 instead of the 12.50. If you can get pics of the 37s on the 4 inch that would be a great help thanks.
