Tire sizing for reverse leveled w/ 20" wheels

Planning on taking my 2" leveling kit off the front and dropping the rear 2". Looking for recommendations and/or pictures of different tire sizes. Going to run 20x9 wheels.

33/12.5/20's with -44 rub up front stock height. even with stops welded on. a 305 somethings on a 20x9 should work well.

Thank you! I'm thinking around 305/50 r20, which would put it at a 32x12.

my cousin run a 295 something 20 on his third gen. it took him a long time to find that size but they don't rub at all on 20x9's. also a mud tire makes the rubbing game worse. were like a 420 has a rounded sidewall.

On my pos 24v I have 20x9s with 305/55/20. They rub the inner fenders ever so slightly when turning. Stock worn out coils in the front.

Sweet, i'm gonna settle for 305/50 20's and they should clear pretty well. Thinking of going with these for wheels : Pro Comp Alloy Wheels - Pro Comp Series 5050 10 Gauge, 20x9 Wheel with 6 on 5.5 and 6 on 135 Bolt Pattern - Satin Black - 5050-293945 | 4WheelParts.com


And these for tires : $219.98 - Cooper Zeon LTZ - tires | Buy Cooper Zeon LTZ tires at SimpleTire

All depends on back spacing of wheel. 20x9 with 5.5 to 5.75 bs will not rub bumper or fender liner with a 13.5 tire even. Will slightly rub on control arm at full lock.

These wheels are a 4.5" offset.
