I'm guessing A Lot. I would never attempt to put a 32 ' tire on my truck with only a leveling kit. Only a guess though.

Alright thanks, i was thinking the same just wanted to hear someone else to say it lol.....I guess I will be getting 17' rims then, not to much of a selection for aggressive tires with 18" rims without getting a lift and I'm not too much of a fan of the body lift.

Go with 265/70r17 2in leveling kit and 1.5in rear blocks. For rims you want a + offset like +18 to +25

I was actually looking at that size, cause I either want to get the Cooper ST's or the Cooper ST Maxx's in that size. Has anyone used wheel spacers before?? I like the look of the tires pushed out just a smidge but i dont know if there's anything bad about them.

We cant use wheel spacers because that would give you a - offset and a 32in tire would rub your best bet is a +15mm offset any thing less than that would rub.

- offset will bring the wheel out
+ offset will bring it in

20x9 +13mm
Dick Cepek Torque
265/50R20
Toyo Proxes ST II
So far, just 2" Drop Shackles in the rear
It rubs, I need to trim some more splash guard and ziptie the fender liner back a bit. Very minor rubbage.

Before... the month I got the truck.
