Another offset question

I have stock 17's on an 05 250. Im looking to get xd revolvers or rockstars 18x9. I want to put nitto terraa grappler tires on the rims. I was looking at 285/65/18 and 295/70/18. I want the tires to look how the stock 17's look. I dont want them to stick out or rub on the inside. I was wondering what offset is recomended for a stock look and was wondering if the 295's are too big without them sticking out.

To have the wheels not stick out you want as close to 5.5" b/s as you can get. With that b/s and the tires you are talking about you should not rub.

I just put 20x9 KMC's with a 4.5" b/s and they stick outside the fenders about 2". They rubbed the wheel wells a little, until I pulled them back.

I hope this helps you out.

18 inch rockstars only come in a 9 wide with a 0 offset. With a narrow offset you can fit up to a 35 without issues.
