Question Will -28mm offset wheels always rub in 35x12.5?

I have a set of Moto Metal 951's with the -28mm offset, and 35x12.50/18 Nitto MT's on them and they rubbed even with a 4.5in lift kit on my 05 F250. I read that a lot of people were able to mount 35's on 08-10 without a leveling kit so I tried that tonight on the front and they seemed to rub about the same amount as they did on my 05. Even though my 2010 is bone stock.

I was curious if because of the offset of these and the super wide stance if they are always going to rub at full ****? I ask because if they rubbed with a 4.5 lift kit, I am assuming a 2.5 inch leveling kit isn't going to make any difference on the 2010 I just purchased.

I am leaving this Friday for a trip with the toy hauler and am looking to beef up the stance a little instead of the stock 17's and wanted to see if anyone knew if these would always rub at full **** before I mounted them and let them go.

Thanks!

Sorry about the *** it means full turn, just a "bad" word....

When talking about offset, we need to know wheel width also. 2010+ will easily clear 35x12.5 with the right offset. There are a lot of guys running that tire size on a stock truck with minor rubbing of th radius arm.

Right, I had high hopes, I am guessing since they are 12 inch or 12.5 inch wide wheels, that they are going to rub no matter what I do, unless I do like a 6 inch lift etc.

Just trying to figure out my next steps, we have a baby on the way and it isn't practical for me to lift the truck again, so was just going to level it, but if it's going to rub either way then I'm not because when I have my TH on it will level the rear with the front.

Thanks.

Thank you, I actually was just talking to my dealer about the leveling kit and he suggested the same thing. My 35 Nitto MTs are only about 1/4 worn so I was hoping to get more out of them, but if it complicates my life then they have to go lol. Toss them on CL once I pull them off and go from there.

I get tires at costs from him and free mount/balance so not a huge issue. Thanks!
