Ok so I have done all the reasearching my eyes can handle on this subject and haven't come up with a satisfactory answer. Soooo I'm throwing it out here to see if anyone can shed some light on this and get me rolling!

Im about 98% decided on these rims. The tires I get will depend on what will fit properly with the rim I get.
What i'm not sure about is which will be the best fit.

2011 Pro4x will be getting PC 6'' lift kit installed. Undecided on stage.
Here are the rim options they have

BMF Novakane Death Metal
BMF Wheels Novakane ? Truck Wheels, Lifted Truck Rims, Off Road Truck Wheels, Custom Wheels, Leveling Kits
Size....Backspace.......Offset.......Weight/lbs
>20x9.....5...................0.............39
>20x10.....4.75 .............-19.........41
>22.9.5 .....5.25..............0...........45

I want to run a 35'' tires, I have talked to a member on here running 22'' black monster rims with a -44 offset And I think they look amazing. But he has a 6'' lift and 3'' body lift. I would like to just go with the 6'' lift for now, Pinchweld mod is no issue for me I can do that. Adjustable coilovers can be done as well. I will also putting on flares so the stick out is not bothersome to me I actually like them to stick out. I just want to know what will work the best and not give me any rubbing issues or be too stressfull on the wheel bearings, still having a hard time picturing what differences the offset and BS makes on our trucks.

Thanks in advance for the help!!!

rbt just installed a pc stage 2 with a -12mm offset he has the pwm and is still getting rubbing issues just fyi. a lot of guys with the pc lifts get rubbing with 35's. primarily on the drivs side. yes you can crank the co's up but then u sacrifice comfort in driving. wheels look bada$$ little pricey but to each his own. when i did my 6" i had a rough country which is comparible to a 7" overall lift so its a little bigger than the pc lifts. the stage one is more of a 4.5-5.5 inch lift depending on the truck (2wd vs 4wd, 08 or newer springs) maybe look into a tire that is a 35 but a little narrower. my 35's are 13.39" wide hopefully someone with a similar lift will chime in. i could have fit 37's with my lift so im not much help. all i can tell you is the closer to stock backspacing and offset the less chance you have for rubbing issues. my rims are 5.71 backspacing and +18mm offset.

HHm well I deffinatly dont want to sacrifice any driving comfort so maybe the 0 offset 20s are my best bet. they are a bit pricy but im they type that when something catches my eye I have a hard time looking back. >.< I think Ive got a line on some that are cheaper than shown on that website. what would you consider to be a little narrower tire? The ones I have been looking at are Mickey Thompson baja ATZ 35X12.50R20 actual diameter being 34.5''.
I have ran the Mud terrains on a truck before and liked them, I just dont need the mud lugs anymore.


Anybody know this truck? Or better yet know his setup. It's the stance i'm going for with these rims, its the only titan i've seen with them.

I am the one RoyJl42 is talking about and not only am I getting serious rubbing but when I turn into a dip it pushes the tire even furtherback into the fender. I too thought I did enough researching and the bottom line is I guess its true what they say that every truck is different. I picked a narrow tire b/c it was done on here and figured it would clear, a 295x65x20 nitto trail which is 12.13" wide but a 35.47" tire. I really think it really does come down to offset. I went with a -12 and again been done on here but looking back that -12 on my same rim was on a Titan with a RCX kit so it was taller clearing it w/ no issues. Discount is working with me and is either going to get me the same rim with a positive offset or a 295x60x20 nitto terra grappler which is a 34"or I could put the 295x65x20's on my Rockstars which are a +10 and 8.5" wide rim which might clear but also might look narrow in stance,

just some examples....

he has the same tires on 20's and even kept his mud flaps yet those tires on my 20's w/o mud flaps rub bad. its positive offset close to factory but you will have a narrow stance if your ok with that otherwise to get an aggressive stance you'll have to go higher.

pro Comp 295x665x20 nitto trail Grappler 20x8.5 rim pic3.jpg

He has my rockstars same size with 35's and again fits well and again +10 on a 8.5" rim

HHMMM why can't things be easy lol .
I think I might take my chances and get the 20x9 5''BS and 0offset with Mickey Thompson baja ATZ 35X12.50R20 actual diameter being 34.5''. To me it seems like I might not rub with these, they are not too aggressive of a tire. If it does then I will have to work it out from there. (EDIT:just looked and they have a LT305/55R20 which is 33X12.50R20) < those might work better
I may look into the cst lift a bit more to give me the clearance. Or possibly just bodylifting it aswell, like I've mentioned the only reason i was going with the PC now was for the warranty but I will not sacrifice quality,proper fitment, and liking what I have just for that reason.
That sucks that your still having rubbing issues rbt, thats exactly what im trying to avoid : /

The rockstars are always another option too because I know there is more offset options to better suit my truck , but There are so many people around my way who have them I kind of want to be different.


still not set on which to get lol >.<

Looks like that first pic you posted the truck has a body lift. I am pretty sure titan- doesnt have a body lift. He is in az though, and that pic you posted definitly looks like an az pic lol.

Well this buy is happening soon and it seems that noone really knows if they will work or not until they are actually on the truck because everyone seems to have different experiences for each individual truck lol. I'm just going to do it and if they dont fit then whatever I'll deal with it then.
I'm going to get the 20x9 5'' bs and 0 offset BMF Novakane rims
I want to get Mickey Thompson baja ATZ 35X12.50R20 for the tires but might have to settle with 33X12.50R20 to not rub. Im just afraid they will look too small.

Too bad you can't go somewhere to try on rims and tires like you can with clothing :p

I am running a 7" CST lift, most would say its like 6" to 6.5" at most though
20X10 with -24mm offset and 35x12.50x20 Federal Couragia Mud Terrains.
Lock to lock no rubbing issues what so ever. Your 20x10 option with the -19mm offset
is pretty close to what I have also...so that might be an option for you.

You will still rub slightly with the 35/12.5/20 on the 9" wide wheel. I had a set of 20x9.5" procomp wheels 0 offset with the Mickey Thompson ATZ 35/12.5/20's and rubbed some. I then switch to a 20x9 XD wheel -12mm offset on the same tire and again rubbed. I am now going with the 20x10 BMF Novakane's on some 35/12.5/20 Goodyear MTR with Kevlar tires. I expect more rubbing but plan on adding a larger lift block to the rear and a 1.5" coil spacer. Just so you know I have a Pro comp stage II.

I know these wheels are the 20x9 BMF Novakane's. The 20x10 Novakane's were just barley manufactured I will have one of the very first sets made come Friday of this week.

Thanks for the info guys.

@supralative.Trucks looking sick!!. I am really liking the cst lift I've seen a few with it now and none of them have had any issues with 35's rubbing at all. I am seriously considering that lift, will have to check it out though I think if I remember correctly my nissan dealer said I could only lift it 6'' and not void anything in my warranty agreement. He was going to be the one installing the PC lift. with full warranty.



@1blktitan, let me know how those rims are once you get them on better yet throw up some pics! :) ill still be away at work for a couple weeks so I have some time to think about it.
