Really? What makes it more than some? I thought the the -12mm offset would take some trimming out of the equation.

Not at all, I'm just stating the facts, I have a 3" lift and 35's and had minor trimming so a 2.25 level with 35's is going to have more than minor trimming with a -12 offset... That's just how it is

So as long as he gets that extra half an inch he'll fit 35's? And wat kind of offset is needed then to fit? Cuz i got 33's on a -12 offset with a 3" level and im looking into getting 35's now

See, you should have "some" trimming if you get 35s cause of the 3" lift... He will have more than some with a 2.25 ( if he wants to turn)

I trimmed a little off of the bumper valence and reshaped the rear plastic with a heat gun , think my backspace is 5, I can check for sure if you need me to because that comes into play as well

Thanks for the advice, brother! I'll stick with 295s then. Would a 305/70 fit? That's under 35, right?

Default 2WD wheel width suggestion please

I know, another wheel question...

I've searched and haven't found a definite answer. I own a 2004 2WD. I know, I know.. 2WD LOL. I came across this 4x4 while on vacation in Hawaii a while back. I know this one has a leveling kit, and I know the 4X4 is taller than a 4X2. My question is... What wheel specs should I go with to get close to achieve this look? I'm going to with a 33/12.5 for sure, but wanted a few suggestions here. Most likely will be a BFG AT or MT if I can get a good deal. Currently it's stock, with rancho quicklifts on order.


Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
