Default Help deciding on new wheels for 02' 2500HD w/4-6" Lift

Need help deciding on replacement rims. I've had 20x8.5 Rockstars on 35x12.50's since 2008. They are ruined from years of salt exposure. Contemplating a 20x12 deep dish rim. Not sure if I'd like it or if it would work with a Cognito 4-6" NTBD lift. Open to all suggestions. Thanks!

Stay 9 or 10 wide. I had 12s and wasn't a fan, have to run a smaller tire to clear

I personally love my 22x12s. 20s just aren't big enough for me and I like the width. If I had to do it again I may go with 10s. But no smaller than 22. Nice wheel to tire ratio with 35s. Probably get flogged for that but hey whatever

I plan to use the existing 35x12.50 Toyo MT's. I bet tires for 22's are $$$.

I'd run 17x9 or 20x10.

I'm old school, I like 17's. And I love the durability of the fuels.

With a 4-6 you probably wanna stick with a 0 offset. If you wanna keep your cv angles as flat as possible that is

I'm running 20x8.5 right now with +10mm offset and 5.14" BS. If I went with 20x10, Lift kit specs says it will allow up to 5.15" BS. What is the maximum negative offset I could run?

From what I'm seeing online, anything more than a -12 offset in a 20x10 of going to have too much backspacing for you. But that means they will stick out more and more trimming. You might be better off staying with a 9, but ultimately it's up to you. I might would get 10s or 12s and crank it up till your tires wear out then step down to a 33 and lower down. From the pic in your sig you don't look trimmed much at all. Anything 10 or wider youll probably need to. Not much. But some.

That's tough one. Whatever you heart desires buddy. I never did like the deep dish look. I like -22 at most but that's me. Surprised you put chrome rims on in the first place. They look good tho. It's not even real chrome anymore. Just a layer of it.

Chrome began pitting after one year too. I'm actually tossing around the idea of going with new style 20" GM wheels polished for 8x165.1 if I can find them.

That would look awesome no one does that. I liker that idea. Ya I got told once by a guy at les schwab that the chrome rims now days are fake or they are only a layer or two of actual chrome. I love the new brushed metal look some rims have now too. I wonder if you could custom order a set of GM look alike but with offset lol now that would be savage.

I'm finding some new body style LTZ replicas that fit 2001-2010 8 lug trucks in a polished 20" wheel 8.5" wide...+12mm offset 5.25" BS. They look great! Not sure if they can be trusted though. A little nervous..
