Keep in mind torsion bar lift pull the wheel/tire closer to the frame which may lead to sway bar rubbing depending on the backspace of the wheels you choose

Well I'm a noob when it comes to offsets and back spacing an what not. I've researched what it was but I still don't understand it. Since I have the torsion bar lift what do y'all prefer in the backspace and size of tires I should get? Keep in mind my truck is a 4x4 an I'm wanna keep the tire size as big as I can get it without causing problems.

Keep the backspace 4.5 to 5" with a 32x10.5 tire and you should be fine.
