Default Need help picking wheels and tires for my 2012 cherry red ram

Hello,
I'm seeking your help in picking wheels and tires for my 2012 ram 4x4.

I'm going to run the bilstein struts up front to level it at the 2.1 inch setting.

The tires I want to go with are nitto trail grappler m/t.
People have recommended me to go with the 295/60/20, but someone said that a 295/65/20 and was wondering if this would fit as they said it is the same width just taller. So what tire would you choose i want to run no spacers and have no cutting or modifications done?

Here's my truck


The first rim I'm interested in, is by pro comp its the model 8180
its Gloss black with machining, 20x9, 0 offset, 5 inch backspacing



This one is the fuel hostage d531 its going to be matte black
they make it in 3 different offsets its going to also be 20x9 and bore is 87.10
The offsets are -12, 1, and 20 if would choose this rim what offset? also would the 87.10 bore work?



This one is also by fuel its the boost d534 also in 20x9 but has different offsets and bores to pick from, sorry I'm new to this and don't know what bore will fit
it comes in offset 1 and 20 at a bore of 110.30, and also comes with a 87.10 bore with offsets -12, 1, and 20, and one bore at 108.00 at -12 offset? which bore works with are truck?


and the last one is a moto metal M0962 Gloss black also 20x9 with offset at 0 and backspace 5 inch



so im asking which tire size would you pick as I don't want to have to do any modification or use spacers? and which rim and if they have one or more offset or bore which one would you choose?

once again sorry for it being so long, I'm new to this and haven't seen any of these rims in person so I'm hope you guys can help! or if you have a rim that you would recommend that looks good let me know!

Thank you!!

hey guys im leaning towards the fuel hostage wheels with the 295/65/20 nitto trail grappler tires i was looking at getting the 1 offset, also i dont know if the bore size is 87.1 or 78.1 does that matter?

and you think there is any way to run the 35x12.5x20 with the bilstein struts with the fuel hostage rims at a 1 offset, also what is the difference for in the -12 offset?

so would you guys recommend the hostages in 0 offset or -12 offset and im just going to have the bilstein set at 2.1 and the tires are going to be 295/65/20 i hope they will fit with no rubbing

Thanks for the help guys!
