i hate this offset b/s they have, its a 4.75 BS with a -6mm offset which if i figure this correctly does equate to the 4.5'' BS i actually need

9" wheel with a -6mm offset is about 4.75" BS. Calc. by taking the Wheel width + 1" (for the lip) div. by 2. Take the offset from there, in this case -6mm (or about -1/4")

So
9+1= 10
10/2= 5
5 - about 1/4" = about 4.75".

I wouldn't think that would be all that bad. I guess it also depends on tires.

ah ok, why do they gotta be stupid with it. a simple BS number is best imo. oh well. tire im planning is a goodyear wrangler duratrac
LT295/65R18 Rim width=8.0 - 10.0
meas rim=8.50
section width in inches=11.8
height=33.1
max load @ psi=3,860 @ 80

trucks also has x codes up front so i dont see height being a issue either. im thinking i should be alright width wise on them too
