Default wheel and tire question

Hi I am a newbi and I have a 2010 quad cab 4x4 with 17 inch stock wheels. I bought a light level kit from rough country and then decided to go with bilstein 5100 level struts anyway I bought 33x12.50x17 dick cepek mud country tires. I thought they would fit on my stock wheels until they showed up and they are wide. so my question is I know for them to fit I will need new wheels just wondering if anyone has any idea on what offset and backspacing I would need. I know they will stick out from the fenders but I want to try to keep it to a minimum any info will be greatly appreciated and thanks

the info you need is already there take the rims you have and measure them for your off set , back space. get wider rims with same back space or get tires that will fit your originals. the reason behind maintaining the original back space or even increasing it is to maintain the turning raidius and the inside clearance between tire and frame.hope this info helps.

You can fit those on a 9" wide rim. If so, go w a 0 offset. If you go to a 10" wide rim, go for a -12 offset.

How is that going to help him at all? If he gets a rim with the same backspacing he's still going to rub so that would be a complete waste of money.... I don't think he's very concerned with maintaining that tight of a turning radius if these are the mods he's doing. JMO.

This ^^ is good information. You'll want 17x9 0 offset wheels to clear those tires but be sticking out the least bit possible. If you can find the wheels you want in a 17x9 +6 offset that would work for you as well and keep the tire tucked under the truck a 1/4" further. But I doubt you will find that offset as it's more uncommon.

With the 17x9 0 offset rims and 35x12.5 tires you'll be sticking out past your fender around 1.5".

Same thing. 00 is just a fancy way of saying 0.

Default new direction

Well I an going in a new direction instead of the 33x12.50x17 I am going with 285/70/17 tires. the 33's was just to wide for what I wanted so here is my question I am going to get a set of aftermarket wheels you all helped me out with the offset for the 33's. so would it still be the same for the 285's at 0offset or can I go for more of a positive offset

You can go with up to a +19 offset in a 9" wide rim and still fit the 285 wide tires.
