17x9 -12 offset

Post by pmwigginspw » Sun Nov 25, 2018 10:52 am

I just bought a set of XD833 Recoil in 17x9 with -12 offset. My 2018 PW has the 1.5 inch leveling kit and 35x12.5 Toyo ATII. Will these fit? Will it rub? Thanks.

No. Too much negative offset. You won't rub radius arm or swaybar ends. Your tires will get into the pinch weld or bumper when you turn. With 35s, they may not interfere on level ground, but with the suspension compressed and the wheels turned you'll have problems. It would probably be livable with 35's if you drive it carefully or trim a lot. If you do 35s and decide you want to go 37s, the problems will only get worse.

+18mm offset is the sweet spot for these trucks. 35x12.5 tires will fit just fine on the stock rims, you don't need to change a thing if you don't want to.

And nothing you do lift/level-wise matters unless you've dropped your bump stops. Static ride height is irrelevant. It's a matter of where the tires end up with the suspension flexed or fully compressed.

Would a +0 offset work?

You’re going to rub the pinch weld pretty hard if you’re on 37’s. 35’s, still will get some rub but not bad. It’s better to stick in the +15-30 range.
