Default 2014 sport wheel offset?

I have a 2014 Ram Sport with a 2" Readylift leveling kit and Dick Cepek Fun Country LT275/65/20's (34.2" tall X 11.1" wide)on my stock 20X9 sport wheels. I also am in the process of installing some EGR Rugged fender flares which are adding about 1 1/2" in width to my fenders. I'm wanting to possibly change my wheels out to some Dropstars 645 mb's. They come in 0 offset and +18 from what I've found. I've seen that my wheels have a +19 offset. First, is this correct about my factory wheel offset? Second, I'm wanting my tires to be pretty much flush with the outer edge of my flares. When I test fitted them and looked, they seemed like they would be pretty close to flush, maybe not quite there. I'm just wondering what offset might get me the closest? The +18 would be my best guess. If I wanted them pushed farther out would I get the 0 offset?

By my quick calculation I would say your tires now are probably right flush with your fender (without any flares). So in order to be flush with the EGR flares if they give you 1.5" extra coverage you will need a 20x9 -12 offset rim if you're planning on keeping the same tires.

Thanks Brandon! I appreciate the response. Now, hopefully I can find some wheels that'll work.

I changed my rims to 20x9 with 1mm offset and 295/65r20 tires, they sticks out maybe an inch at most. If I could get a do over I'd definitely get the -12mm so they would be a better fit with flares.

Do you have flares on your truck? If so, do you have a pic?

I don't have flares. I would show you a picture of what it looks like without flares but my truck is getting repaired from an accident and I don't have any pictures. However HERE is another member with the same setup. Keep in mind that the trail grappler tires he has are wider than a standard 295/65r20 tire.

Do you think the -12 offset will work without rubbing with my current setup?
