    Well, not necessarily better it depends on the look you are going for and the fit you need. Essentially the lower the number the further the tire will stick out(I think.. i am no expert). but the lower offsets could just bring different problems like more rubbing in the front bumper.
    Just for an example, My Wheels are +60mm. I added a 1.25 inch(32MM) spacer that would bring them to about a +28MM.but that also pushed the wheel out and closer to the bumper when i turn..
    If i am talking out of my ass someone can chime in and correct me.. but thats my understanding.

    Rough Country 3/1 leveling lift. Rugged Cover 2 bed cover. Husky liners. Tint. Magnaflow muffler with factory exhaust & resonator delete.
    I think I will stick to my original plan and go with 285 60 20s Ridge Grapplers. My UCAs are fairly close to the tire now with 275 55 20s Terras...

    Sorry for the late reply. With the 275/65/20 tires and 1.25" spacers I do get minor rubbing in reverse on the driver's side only. This is with the small front wind deflector/flap removed. I will use a heat gun (when it warms up around here) to reshape the inner fender a little. The rubbing is so minor that I could have gone with 285/65/20.

    Thank you! I just dropped off my truck to get the Bilsteins 2.5” strut in the front only. I’m really hoping it will make a difference and i can put a taller tire, that’s my goal. You did the 2.2” or how much? @plumber802

    Yes,I went with the top setting and it will make a difference in ride quality. The Bilsteins handle bumps,potholes and ruts a lot better than than the stock struts. Make sure to do a wheel alignment after.Nice pic ^^^^. We are expecting 8-12" of snow here in Vt. tomorrow.
