Hmmm might want to rethink this. I don't want something crazy, I want something that may poke just a bit, but nothing crazy... Thanks for the help, I do appreciate it.

In a 16x8, what would an ideal offset be? Would a 16x7 be better on these?

You'll be fine with a 16x8" wheel, wont poke out that much and if you have 4x4 fenders up front already, then you are good to go. I had 15x8s with 195/50/15s and I rolled the fenders slightly up front for it to tuck and clear the fenders. I now have 15x10s and still using my 195/50/15s.........I rolled and pulled the stock fenders and I tuck just fine up front, the rear I have not banged the tires against the bed yet in the last few months I've been driving and I drive alot. Lol, I'm 7" drop up front and 6" drop in the rear



before with old wheels

Your old wheels are about what I'm looking for. I'd like a little less poke than that idealy. What offset were those?

I honestly cant remember the offset on the old wheels. They stuck out about 1/2" inch before rolling the fenders. Rear I havent had problems with yet, I am gonna lower the rear some more soon and roll/pull the rear fenders as well to get the 15x10s to tuck. I may drop the front a tad lower while I'm at it.

After some more searching, I stumbled onto this gem in a build thread. 3" or so of drop, 17x8's with a -10 offset. So the rims I'm looking at would only poke out 2mm more correct? This truck has the look I'm after.

So the lower the negative number the further they will stick out? -44 will stick more than a -12, and a -12 will stick out further than a 0?

Yes. Negative goes outward. And positive goes inward. In a certain sense.

It's basically how far the mounting pad is inside the barrel.

Whatever happened with this? I'm looking at 17x8 soft 8's with a -12 offset and love the stance in the pic. I love me a little poke. Sorry for the ancient thread revival, I'm desperate to see this setup. I've been googling this shit for about a week aand a half...every....fucking...day. Tire size on the wheels is what I'm trying to figure out
