Default Official "Will my wheels tuck" thread

Before posting, please browse through the thread to see what others have posted.

Okay, lets put all these posts in one thread and hopefully keep the clutter down. eventually people will be able to compare what does to what doesnt. and maybe. . . just maybe we'll put an end to this mystery.

If you want to know if a wheel will tuck, we need you to answer a few questions.

Year and model of your truck:_______________
Suspension: Bagged, or static drop?(how much)
Bodydropped? (yes or no)
4wd fenders? (yes or no)

Wheel in question (brand, style):_____________
Size (diameter x width):______________
Offset or backspacing:_______________
Tire size:______________






for example:

Yes, you will have to roll the fender lip and flare the bedsides a little.
Simple enough?

also, here is a good chart to convert backspacing to offset, for easy comparison to combo mentioned in this thread.


please see the following chart before asking a question.

5.4" backspace on an 8.5" wheel converts to about +29mm

they will tuck on the fronty with rolled fender lips.
on a hardbody you should be fine up front, but will have to flare the bed in the rear pretty well.expect to cut out in the inner fender supports and weld in spacers.

Where do you get those conversions? It'd be nice to know how to do them in case I find some other wheels..... Another suggestion for this thread would be posting things like
20x8.5 needs such and such offset to tuck
22x9.5 needs ____ to tuck
Just an idea going through the popular sizes and give the needed offset.

offset is the distance from center to mounting surface. often measured in millimeters. the metric way (japan, europe, etc)

backspacing is the distance from the back of the wheel to the mounting surface. measured in inches. The american way! (which i think is dumb)

anyhoo. you know the width of the wheel. say 20x8. so you know that this wheel is 8" wide, and if the offset is 0, then the mounting surface would be in the dead center, or 4" of backspacing. you follow?

so on a 22x9 the backspacing is 6 inches. well, center is 4.5 inches. so that means the mounting surface is to the positive side of that by 1.5". so convert 1.5" to mm (25.4mm = 1 inch) to get your positive offset. 1.5x25.4=38.1 or +38mm offset

lets go the other way now. wheel is a 24x10 with +40 offset. that means the mounting surface is 40mm positive of the 5" center line. so 40 / 25.4= 1.57". add that to the 5" center and you have 6.57" backspacing

ill make charts and spreadsheets another day.
