Default Decided on offset for rims

I have a 2013 CC 4X4 sport. Ill be doing the 5100's maxed out and a 1.5"BL

Tires will be Nitto Trails 35X12.50X20
Rims will be Fuels (undecided type yet)

Should I stay with a 12.50 tire? If so what rim offset?
I searched a lot, and find most are using a -12 or -24 offset.

I would like to see some measurements on how far the tire will be past the fender with either a -12 or -24 offset.

Hope to get all this done soon as I recover from surgery...

I have +1 offset and my 35"s stick out about 1.25". Nitto Trails are slightly wider due to their aggressive side wall... so add about another .5 for the -12, and another .5 for the -24. Here are some side pics of mine (post#26): http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=162904

What Stang said. Just depends on how far you want them to stick out.

what was said above^^^ -12mm and -24mm will give you a very aggressive stance.

DO you have any pictures from the back and front showing how far the tire sticks out away from the fender with your offset? Also read your thread and thanks for the advice for the hub centric inserts, I think those are a must to add!

EDIT: never mind just saw the updated pics on your thread…

I have 35x12.50-20 Nitto Trails and 20x10 -24mm Fuel Kranks

Stick out about 2.5-3 inches I'm guessing

This is on my 2007...Shouldnt be much difference vs the 4th gen...

I think theres a 1/2" difference between -12mm and -24mm

Hope it helps!!

Pictures like that are exactly what I'm looking for. for me I think -24 might be too much, so -12 might be a bit better if it will bring the tire towards the truck another 1/2 inch. Looks great though. I ride my truck in rocky areas and don't want to kick up too much on the exterior of the truck. Flares will be a must with full coverage on the tire to prevent possible exterior damage.

With all the past searching I have done, I can't believe I just found this Post. IT"S A MUST READ! Very detailed, and answered almost every question I had. http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=159580

Looks like The Final word is 20x10 Fuels -12 offset with nitto trails 35x12.50x20 5100's maxed with Zone 1.5BL will get the job done. Plus look AWESOME! I'm about a month away from physcially being able to do the install.

One more thing to add. When choosing between tires here are the differences between the actual Toyo, and Nitto Measurement:

Toyo: 35X12.50X20 Actual Height:34.50 Actual Width:12.50
Nitto: 35X12.50X20 Actual Height:35.04 Actual Width:13.39

I might have to choose the Toyo as opposed to the Nitto due to the actual tire width.

I do have the pocket flares from bushwacker and they are pretty flush with the tires. They still splash up the side a little but doesnt bounce rocks off the paint...

I wanted the tire to be flush or slightly wider than the flares so I opted for the -24mm for the wide stance and wheel lip...dont really like the look of the flares out past the tires even tho that is there purpose lol...

can't wait to see your truck!!! good luck!!

With flares
