Default -12 offset too much for stock flares?

Hello,
I have a 2014 2500 outdoorsman and want to find a set of wheels to sit flush with stock flares. Going to be running 35x12.50 tires. Would a -12 offset with 4.53" backspace stick out too far? They also have a +18 offset with 5.71" backspace. I was thinking the +18 would not stick out far enough. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Travis

Well an offset doesn't mean anything without knowing the wheel width. However assuming we're talking about a 9" wide wheel you'll want a +12 offset to have the outside of the tire flush with the flares. 0 offset to have them 0.5" past the flares.

Thanks. You are correct, I was referring to 9" wheels.

I hope this helps you out a bit. I'm running 295 60 20 trail grapplers on a 20x9 rim with +1 for an offset. I have flares that are very very close to stock flares but I do believe are a touch wider. I like mine although I do miss them sticking out a bit. I had to go with mud flaps and flares or my paint would have been ruined. There's a place that does talk about rims and tires but a sticky with this specific question could be useful.

Thanks brother for the pictures. I think the 01 offset won't be enough for me since I want to run a 35x12.50. I am looking at some +12 or +18 offset wheels.

+1 is going to push them out further. +18 will tuck them in more. I believe our stock rims have something close to +20.

That's what I meant....haha...I don't want them to stick out to far. That's why I was looking at the higher offset.

is the offset number +20 or +1 in mm increments from the center or what does the number represent?

mm from the center. the lower or higher negative offset will push the wheel out more depending on what your stock offset is.
