Aftermarket Wheels & Tire size/offset photos

17s or 18s?? i generally run 18s, but am eyeing some 17s. 37s will be the tire. any clearance issues with 17s?
'24 Tremor
 
I was a kid in the 80's as well but I still can't get with polished or chrome on most setups. While black is definitely the chrome of the 2000's I still prefer it. There are a few wheels out there that I would only purchase in a high polish, the KMC full bead locks are one of them.

Method HD wheels are only something I'd consider if I were towing at or near full towing or payload capacity consistently and even then, like others have already noted, your wheels would exceed your tires payload rating. For 98% of us the HD wheels are a waste of money and added weight/rotational mass. Lastly, the wheels they offer in the HD line are as about exciting as a wet sock but beauty is in the eye of the beholder or something like that.
 
Drop to 17" wheels to save a few pounds only to run 37" tires.....yea....not a Jenny Craig plan by any means.
17" tires might get you to 3900lbs payload rating depending on the brand. But most guys "want" 37" tires...so you aren't getting close to 3900lbs per tire (depending on brand).

Closest to stock:
Using 18" tires in the right size (35" LT) can give one 4080lbs per tire, so using the HD Methods in 18" pairs up quite well for load ratings.
-Going to 37" tires on 18" wheels adds significant weight.
In 18" tires I can save 10lbs per tire by running an LT size over standard and have better load ratings.

Across the board I doubt too many wheels are going to be lighter, have a higher load rating, and be reasonable on costs. Then add to that the weight of the tires which could wash out all those gains.

Alas 1st world problems....
 
Looks like my power boards didn't get re-added to my order and my truck is in production. I'm putting 37s and a carli 2.5/3.5 system on it. I'm 6'3 wife is 5'8. I have read power deplorable streps are a must if you lift it or put 37s as stock

Nah, I run the fixed boards with the Carli kit and 37's. My wife is 5'4" and gets in and out with no issues. If the women whine then tell them they don't ride.

I'd say there not really needed. I have a 3 inch level kit on 37s I'm 5'9 my wife's 5'4" and I have 2 young kids all climb in just fine without issues or complaints with the fixed tremor boards

AMP steps are easy to add if you deployable boards. See how you and your family like the truck once it comes in and then make the decision. No need to buy the steps ahead of time.
 
Any suggestions what offset I should be looking at for a '23 with these flares on the way?


I have a 5" BDS lift, and Im thinking a 20x"9" wheel but open to suggestions. I think a 0 offset might not fill it out with the new flares?

I live on a dirt road, so I dont want a ton of poke, but some is fine

20x9 +0


20x10 -24

0 offset is definitely not enough for those flares. 9" and 0 offset is going to be flush with your OEM fenders so you'll have the "PeePaw" look, as they call it, with the those flares. I'd go with the 20x10 -24.

As far as I know those wheels on the rough country truck are the Caesar 20x10 -25 offset and they are past the flares by a few inches. When I asked rough country how far the flares stick out they said about 1”. I went with the old man look of +18 wheels since they still go past the wheel wells about so they should be just inside the flare.

This is @Generalburl truck with a 0 offset and 22 factory flares.

And this is a CJC build with 0 offset and no flares on a 23.
