Default rim clearances

Hi everyone

New to the forum and I need some help/advice. I have a 2004 Ram 1500 QC Laramie 4x4. Bought the truck two years ago with the OEM 20x9 chrome rims with 275/60 R20 Goodyear Silent Armour. The backspacing is +18mm. I found a set of black 20x9 SRT 10 replica rims with +25mm backspacing. I'm getting mixed messages from several different experts. Some say they absolutely rub on the suspension of the 4x4's, some say it won't. As you can see the difference is a mere 1/4 inch in backspacing. I currently have 3/4 inch clearance with the factory 20x9 chrome rims to any suspension. So in theory, it should have 1/2 inch clearance left with the replicas. Is that enough room? Am I right?

Has anyone ACTUALLY tried to fit these in this situation?

I'm no expert, but I would think that they would fit. Who are you buying them from, can they test fit them for you?

Do you know if that white QC is a 4x4? They say that 4x4 suspension hits it.

Dont mean for this to be a post dump, but I hope the black ones look better, because I can't say that smaller size looks good with those tires... Are you going to run the stock 20" tires?
