I'm running 305/55/20 with a +15 offset and they stick out no more then 1/2 inch from the fenders.

So if we extrapolate that using your 275 width, to get a similar "stance" you would need a negative -15 offset. If you want to stay pretty flush with the fenders and fender flaps subsequently, get a 0 offset. For reference 18mm is around factory offset and sticks just inside with a factory 275 width.

I have an 08 Hemi and I can't decide between 17x8.5 rim and 18x9 rim. Both have -12mm offset. I want the tires stick out nicely. I like the look of gonefishin776's truck! I also can't decide between federal Couragia M/T and Toyo open country M/T. Any suggestions. Trying to be cost efficient

can't go wrong with either of those rim sizes. im sure the 17's cost less. they'll both look good. -12mm is a perfect stance for a leveled truck IMO

as far as the tires. if you are on a budget then get the federals, i like mine. but they probably won't last as long as the toyos. significant difference in price though.

I am with Kyle on this. The -12 offset is the perfect offset for leveled 3rd gens with 17" rims. My XD addicts are 17x9 with -12 offset. Toyo Open Country M/T 35/12.50/17 tires. Also have bilsteins set at 2" in the front. Will be a 6" suspension lift added later this year, so will be interesting to see how they sit then.

Federals appear to be great for the price. I love my Toyo's, except when really cold they are a rough ass ride until they warm up to the road. Once warmed up or when driving in normal temperatures, they are actually a pretty good ride and not loud compared to some M/T's out there.

Heres a side pic from when I first put them on. Note your truck will stay clean for about 2 minutes after washing it lol.
