Default Got a question about stance

Im wanting to put 35" toyos on my stock chrome clad rims. I will probably level it but my question is. I want to have a wide stance. I want y tires to stick out and my guess is to put wheel spacers on. And if so how much of a spacer. I can't out a lift on because of my budget. So why is the best way to get a wide stance. Thanks in advance

spacers will work but i would recomend wheels with a negative offset good spacers r almost as expensive as wheels and i would personally rather have sweet rims

you will definitely need a level to fit those tires, and if you put to much of a spacer the tires will rub on the fenders

Here is my rake on it.....

1) if you don't have the cash for new rims with a better offset (negative), wheels adapters hat are hub centric is a way I'd go.
It's not something I'd do, but if cash was an issue, I'd probably do it.
You'd need at least a 1.5" to get a good stance that works with your stock lugs.

2) get rims in either 20x9 with a -12 offset to 20x10 with either a -12 or -24 offset.
-12 on a level will have the wheels stick out by 1.5"

Correct!
This is also what JHinkle has as well.
I believe you ram use the 9/16 lugs vs the 14x1.5 us '12 uses.
Just make sure it is hub centric to your hub. I think our hub is 77.8mm!?!

Make sure to check it every few months to make sure its still torqued.

The reason why you want hub centric is you want the weight on the hub vs the lugs.
Going out 1.5 or more will put added weight and stress and is the reason why its better on the hub.

You may be able to get away with a simple 1/4" spacer, but I have only seen them ran with 295/60/20 and 295/65/20 and some of them had rub at full lock.

JoelWall ^^^ above is using a 1/4" spacer with his 35x12.5. If he is having zero rubs without minor trimming, then go his route.

Anything more than a 3/8" spacer, you will want a wheel adapter as the stock lugs wont grab anymore.
Wheel adapters allow you to use your stock lugs.
Why I say to go 1.5" is because I think your stock lugs will not go in all the way if thinner.

I hope someone who is using a wheel adapter can chime in.
