I know there is a sticky in the 99-10 aftermarket section. I've looked through pretty much all of the 30+ pages and everyone that has 9 inch wide wheels either doesn't list the backspacing and offset or has a newer truck. I've also used the search function to no avail. I'm buying wheels and tires in the next week or so. I just need some pics of your 9 inch wide wheels with the backspace and offset measurement so I can see how far they will stick out. I want mine a good inch outside the factory flares because i'm getting some pocket style fender flares to cover them up. I've heard people say different measurement for the 99-03 factory wheels, anyone know the specs? I'm trying to figure out if 4.53 back space with -12 offset on a 9 inch wheel is too much or not.
Thanks guys :psn:

Since you're putting on the pocket flairs I would go with the 20x10 and a -8 offset. Depends on what wheel you plan to run and how wide of tires you're going with. What wheels do you plan on running?

I'm really leaning towards the Helo Maxx 8 black in 18x9 with 4.53 backspace and -12 offset running 325/65r18 Firestone Destination m/t tires. Also planning on add-a-leafs front and rear.

i know you want pics of 9inch wheels but heres a 24x12 wheel with -44 offset IMO i like the look of a wheel that stick out a little further but you get the idea

Personally I would never go less than a 10" wheel. Anything less is too skinny and pulls in the sidewalls way too much, especially since you plan on running a 325 tire

I still wonder if pocket flares have a chance at covering a 12" wide wheel...

I have 16x10's, -24mm with 35" Xterrains.





Hardly sticks out.

Does anybody have issues with the tires rubbing anything? I turned my steering wheel and it looks like my tire will hit the back of the front fender if the rim sticks out too much.

Average, how much lift are you running? Looks like about 4 or 5 maybe?

I'm just leveled in front, mines a 350 so it's a little higher in back. I rubbed on the bottom tip of the bumper till I trimmed and the fender liners.
