Default Need quick answer!

I have a 2008 Ram 1500 with a leveling kit. I currently have 285/65R18 Terra Grapplers on 18x9 wheels with -11 offset. I have new 18x9 Ballistic Jesters with 0 offset on the way and I also ordered 1" thick wheel spacers that had studs in them. I plan on running the same tire and am wondering if the spacer will cause any issues, like rubbing? I have a little bit of knowledge about wheels and tires but curious about this application. Thanks for any help!

Well in detail to your current spec of -11mm, your offset is about 1/2" out from wheel center. For your new wheels with a 0" offset, plus your wheel spacer of 25mm(1"), I think you will be alright bud. With your tire wheel combo, your tire width measures at 11.22" and just at 32.5" diameter. Again, I think you might still be able to go lock to lock without any fender well cutting. Pics when you get the new wheels on man!

I figured I would be fine but just wanted someone with a little more knowledge to reassure me lol.

Thanks for the quick response and I will definitely post photos after I get them installed, probably in the photos section instead of here.

Should all be good.. And if there happens to be any rubbing it would just be some minor trimming.. I had to trim mine a bit at the front when I get my tires.. I get a small rub now at the back of the passenger side when reversing at a slight incline with my tires turned sharp right.

I have also read that if the studs are longer than the spacer is thick, I will have to shave the studs down. Any experience or knowledge on that? Opinions?

That was my first thought when I read your OP. I have read threads on that topic but I can't remember how long the studs are. Even if they are longer than an inch you still may not have an issue. It depends on whether or not your rims are designed in such a way as to have room for any lug that may stick out.
