Educate me!!

Alright y'all,
I'm in the market for some new wheels and tires. I will be getting 37x12.50x20 nitto trail graps and would like to get fuel wheels, this whole backspacing and offset thing is new to me, so school me!


Truck is a 2012 6.7 w/ a 6" rough country lift.


And yes, the search feature is great…. but who wants to spend hours sifting through threads that may or may not be useful…

Thanks!!!

BTW, I have some used 35x12.5x20 pro comp extreme all terrains on 20" chrome wheels if anyone is interested!

BUMP


Ok, lets narrow this down.... Fuel hostage wheels, -24 offset, 4.5" BS and 37x13.50x12 Nitto Trail Grapplers.... Any input on this setup. Will it work with a 6" lift

It should work with your 6" lift. If you get any rubbing it will be in the front at full steering wheel lock.

Let us know if we can help you with the set. We don't stock Fuel wheels but we can special order them in for you. Give us a ring at 1.888.459.4080 or visit a local Discount Tire or America's Tire for a quote.

Already plan on heading down to my local discount tire for my tires! great service and prices…..

So on the front, do you mean hitting the bumper mount at full lock?? Have not been up in there to see… My biggest worry was the pitman arm or the inner fender wells

Excellent! Thank you for your business.

With that negative of an offset you shouldn't have any issues hitting any steering or suspension components. If you run into any rubbing it will likely be your fender liners in the front. A quick trim or remolding them with some heat will probably do the trick IF you get any rubbing at all.

Thanks for the help fellas!!
I was looking on the discount tire website and noticed the trail grappler 38x15.5 is considerably cheaper than the 37x13.5…. Probably a long shot, but what the possibility of a 38" fitting under a 6" lift if I got the right offset??
