just get longer studs and wheel spacers. waste of money to get extra rims.

You'll want a wide rim with 0mm offset or standard rim with negative offset (-__mm offset, probably no more than -20mm or so...)

Standard for your truck is 0mm with a 8.5" wide rim, so a 10" rim with 0mm offset will stick out 3/4" more than stock, youd need a 12" rim with 0mm to stick out 1-2"... (or a 10" wide rim with about -20mm offset)

Just make sure wheels are negative offset and not positive... many more positive offset wheels than negative out there lol

Or wheel spacers like posted above... for 1-2" spacers get the ones that bolt to your hubs and have another set of studs for the wheel... much safer at that width and weight of your vehicle...

now the tires i bought for 75 bucks are 275/55/20. i dont think those would even fit on a 12 inch rim because i think they are only like 11inches wide. so i would prly just need a 8.5-10inch wide rim with a negative offset to get what im looking for?

yeah, I would look for a 10" wide rim and -12 or -20mm offset...

Just reread that you want to stick out 1-2 past fenders, so that may not even be enough, but I dont think they make too many rims with more than -20mm offset, so if its not enough, you could get spacers too but youll be putting more strain on your wheel bearings so be careful....

Im running 1.5" spacers on my Blazer and they are fine, but its because im running +38mm rims and my truck is +6mm or 0mm stock lol.

Like I said, if you just want a more aggressive stance, 10" wide wheels and -10 to -20mm offset will look nice in my opinion...
