    Default Looking for new wheels

    Hey, I'm in the market for some new wheels on my 2007 1500 VortecMax. Right now I'm running 20" xd chrome hoss but its time for a change, thinking about downsizing to an 18 so it wont get so beat up when I'm offroading/working. I know nothing about wheels so I was wondering if anyone would give me a few specs about what size and backspacing I should be looking for and what will clear or not clear. My xd's are wrapped in 35 x 13.5 Mickey T's and have a 1" wheel spacer. I will probably go with just a 35 x 12.5 tire when I get the new wheels and if possible I'd like to get rid of the spacer but still have the tires stick out. Like I said I know absolutely nothing about backspcing and offset and all that so if anyone that knows more then me or has just bought new wheels with the same truck as me it would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks
