What section width tire you gonna go with?

285? 305? 325?

That will have a bearing on what wheel offset you go with.

I have a -18 offset on my rims and they stick out a good amount. If you go with the KMC XD Series wheels they have large offsets. They really stick the tires out from the body.

If you think about it the stick rims (the stock 20's) have a +20 offset, so going to 0 offset would even stick em out further. So if you go to a -32 offset you really get the tires out there.

+12 would fit nicely with a 12.5" wide tire.

I have a narrower tire (LT285) and have +18 offset KMC XD Addict wheels. I am lifted but I have no rub at steering lock.





I did have 325 section width tires on 9" wide Ultra wheels but I'm not sure what the offset was. I'm guessing it was closer to a +6:
