OFFSET: +18 or -12

2008 F250 CC PSD

Gonna order some XD Monster Rims with 295/70/18 Nitto Grapplers today.

They asked me if I want the +18 offset (which will keep the tires in line with my fender) or a -12 offset which will extend the tire edge about 1" outside the fender.

I like the fat, wide look of a negative offset but I'm worried that the -12 offset will create rubbing issues on a stock truck with no lift.

Any comments or opinions?

295/70R18 is actually a 34x12 or to be more exact 34.4 x 11.7.

Users have been putting 35's on stock height with no rubbing, but it depends on the offset. But I can't recall what offset those users went with.

I'll try to find an old post or thread.

Shouldn't rub, and look much better at -12. If any rubbing, it will be minimal and an easy fix

Nice!

This is all great to hear. I'm going to go with the -12 offset and place the order tonight...

here is -12 offset if you would like to see some pics, oh yeah and all you will prolly have to do is pull the inner fender back. i drilled a small hole in the very bottom, and used a zip tie to hold the plastic inner fender back. mine didnt rub during regular driving but if i hit a curb or something while turning i would see rub marks on the plastic liner. added the zip ties and no rubbing at all. you will be fine!

SOLD! I'm gonna go with the offset for sure. Your truck looks GREAT!

At first glance I thought it was a bit too much offset, but I have a Lariat CC with a cap so the appearance of the offset will not look so dramatic on a longer truck. I can't wait! I will snap some pics and post here...
