Negative Offset Wheels, -40 or more, ideas???

I'm thinking about doing cutout flares and 38x13.5" tires. I would prefer not to go wider than a 13.5" tire, so that means all the 20x12, -50mm wheels are not an option (I think they would be too wide).

I'm needing a wheel that is at least -40mm offset, preferably -50mm. I would prefer this in an 18" wheel, no more than 11" wide if possibly and hopefully 10" wide. I'm needing that much offset because I want to fill out the flares and not rub the frame at full lock. Limiting the steering is NOT an option, and I really would prefer not to use spacers, although I would consider the steel hubcentric ones. 20" wheel is an option, but would prefer 18" for the cheaper tires and better offroading.

Please post links or info of wheels that would meet these specs, thanks!

Shooter04, that's the same tire width and offset I have now. The cutout flares add 4.5" of coverage, so I need to move the tire out for it to look right and not hit the frame/springs at full lock.

BiggPigg4x4, yes, can be too wide. IMO, people that put 12.5" wide tires on 12" wide wheels just look stupid. I want to be able to air them down and not worry about breaking the bead. A 38x13.5" tire on a 10" wide wheel is perfect IMO.

Shooter, I'd be interested in those Fun Country tires if you'll come down on price. 4wheelparts.com had them for $250/tire when they were on closeout. I should have bought two sets then...

I see what your saying. I dont think it would look bad. If I could have found a 20x14 for my 15.50s I would have went with them. Too Each there own.. Your truck will look good anyway you go!

Isn't it bad to run a tire that's too far offset from the truck? I've always heard anything over a -10 was bad. My -12's just BARELY clear my tires at full lock. And i do mean BARELY.

BTW, just to clarify, the number when referring to offset are in millimeters right?

Yes, offset is in mm. More negative offset is generally a bad thing, but with the cutout flares it eliminates the fender clearance issues.

Negative refers to the offset of the rim. A negative offset means the rim is pushed out away from the truck, thus making running over sized tires easier, and a positive offset means it pulls the tires closer to the truck....i guess for narrower tires I'm not sure.

Mine are -12, in meaning they are 12 millimeters farther away from the truck than a stock wheel would be. The OP is looking for some -50 wheels, in meaning the wheels are pushed off the truck.....50 mm lol.
