-12 offset not enough?
I'm getting ready to order some wheels for my 91 d21. 16x8 summit knockoff of the rock crawler style wheels, d holes. They only come in a -12 offset. Anyone have any pics of a 16x8 with this offset? They are about 30 bucks a piece cheaper than the -6 offset pro comps, i'm looking to save some money. I want something that looks aggressive, but won't kill a set of 4x4 fenders with a 4" drop all around. Don't want to bolt them up and look like a pogo stick.

-12 offset will poke out a good few inches

it will be fine. It'll poke a little bit but not much

Great that's just what I'm looking for. They're only 55 a piece too ;). Thanks guys.

with a 4 inch drop and those wheels you will be bashing the hell out of your fenders and bed

I have a 4" drop and my wheels are 15x10 -44 offset. I had about 2" of poke. With a 15x8 and a -12 should only poke at most an inch.

So are these going to work or not? I have pathy fenders up front. Bed sides are a bit rusty so I can't really flare them until I get a new bed. A little poke would give it the aggressive look I want, but I don't want to look like it's on daytons from the front and back either.

With the pathy fenders up front you should be a-ok check out the stretched tire thread and look at the pics of monster2gs truck on 15x8s I'm not sure what his offset was on those but it had a nice fitment.

I dunno I have a 3 inch drop all the way around my toyota and the tires rub my inner fenders when I turn harsh or hit a dip

Ok I looked at three different sets of wheels today for ya. And from my measurements a 15x8 -12 will have almost the same amount of poke as my truck does in my sig pic. The wheels I just picked up yesterday are a 15x10 -44 offset so it will poke a little more than the wheels in my sig pic. Shit is going to be ridiculous! I'm thinking about putting some side step bars on it.
