Since is would be a wider wheel with a positive offset would that create more of a rubbing issue? That wheel also comes is a -8mm offset which is almost the same as the -12 on the XD wheel. Sorry for the question I am a rookie when it comes to wheels and I am just wanting to get it right before making such a big purchase.
I was told that anything with a positive offset will cause rubbing with a wider tire. You have get a negative offset since it sets tires out farther. I dont know a whole lot about the whole tire sizing but that is one thing I was told by everyone. I would definitely do a level, I have the Bilsteins they didn't completely level the front. I did notice a big difference in ride comfort and handling compared to my old stock shocks.
