You can run 0 offset too, I just preferred to have a bit wider stance as I plan on doing a 6" lift this year. I had to trim about 1.5" of wheel liner from the bottom of it on the back side.

So just did the math, and based off the summer avg as in the winter I auto start and idle a lot to warm up. Getting about 16-17 MPG. I have only towed a few times since I got the tires in August with 26foot tow behind. It was noticable, but my truck pulled it. If towing often, the upgraded gears would be needed. We have an F350 and 2 dodge 2500 (98Cummins, 03/04Hemi) that I use instead of my personal truck though (Dad controls an RV dealership that I work for).
That added performance would do it... btw... i am runing the 5.9 Magnum. pullin a 33 foot tow behind. Also, I pull a lot of mountain passes... its the only way i can get out of town... lol

Ya if I was running a 33 footer with a lot of mountains in a 1500 with the 5.9L, 4.56 would be the only way to go.

I'm running the 5.9 single cab 4x4 don't so an awful lot of towing but I do every once in a while. And the wheels are 18x9 but idk offset or back spacing. I know they do stick out a little more than stock. But I just fixed my bumper so it's about where it needs to be but I think I'd have to add a little more lift because it looks to me like a 325/65 would rub pretty good.
