Default What size wheel adapter do I need?!!

My current rims are +25 offset. I like the rims, so I don't want to get new rims if I don't have to. My question is: What size wheel adapter will I need to get the look of a -12 offset rim? Something like a 1"-1.5" adapter? I am running 295/60/20 Trail Grapplers with a 1/4" wheel spacer right now. They are rubbing when turning, not bad, but they are. I would really like the look of a 0 offset or a -12 offset. Either look would be great. Also, what are you guys thoughts on wheel adapters?

To get to a negative twelve offset stance from your +25 stance, you need a 1.5" spacer. To get to a zero offset, you need a 1" spacer.

Thank you, that's what I needed to know. Have you heard any negatives about running adapters? Are they safe to run?

Oh yeah. But the thickest spacer you can run on the stock studs is 1/4". Thick spacers like 1" plus, make sure you get them with their own studs pressed into them for your wheels to sit on. Buy decent quality ones. 1.5" like Motorsport tech B.O.R.A. ( http://www.motorsport-tech.com/special/truck/dodge_s )
I've run them on various vehicles and never had an issue. Make sure to get hubcentric like the MT ones (which means it has a flange around the center for the wheel to sit on instead of the wheel just sitting on the studs and not being perfectly centered.) to help eliminate any front wheel shimmy around 60mph.
You have to take a wheel off first to see if there is relief area on the backside of the rim for the stock stud ends to sit in because they are 1.75" in length I believe. You can measure your studs when you take the wheel off to verify this. If there isn't any relief on the back of the rim for the excess stud when it protrudes through your new spacers, you'll have to cut off a quarter inch (if they are 1.75" and you buy 1.5" spacers) off the stock studs so that your rims sit tight up against your new spacers.
