Trying to figure out my wheel/tire purchasing options. If anyone knows this or can do this, that would be greatly appreciated!

If someone that has the OEM Tremor rims and tires, could you measure two things?

1: How far is the front tire tucked in, measuring from the tire sidewall to the outer lip of the fender?
2: How far is the rear tire tucked in, using the same method as #1.

Thank you! :)
 
A number of threads on wheels and tires. Your answers may be in this thread:

Didn't see anything after searching, hence posting this thread. Figure someone with a tape measure can just find out real quick. (y)
 
I just (quickly) measured 1-1/8” in the rear and 3/4” in the front plumb from the middle of the fender to the outer most bulge of the sidewall.

LMK if you need another measurement or more precision and I’ll check tomorrow.

Awesome! Thank you! I can definitely wait if you'd be willing to get precise measurements, since the truck won't be here for months probably! :)
 
Here’s what I got:

e.g. RP = rear passenger, etc.

Units are inches.

Driveway is slightly out of level side to side, and truck sits even more out of level (gas tank, etc.), so measurements from plumb are different.

Did the math on the average of each side for you. Each came out 1/8” less than my previous, quicker measurement.

I’d note though that these tires have a lot of sidewall bulge and, visually, the tread creates the plumb line on the tires or is what I personally would align with the fender if I wanted a “flush” look. Add 1.5” to my measurements to flush the tread with the fender…

Thank you! I'm confused on what the values are in your first screenshot.

1.5 inches on all four corners will flush the tires with the fender lips?
 
The values are units plumb from the center of the fender to the outter most face of the sidewall.

RP = that measurement on the right passenger side,
RD = right driver
FD = front driver
FP = front passenger

For the sidewall to be flush with the center of the fender on average, the rears need to come out ~1” and the fronts need to come out ~7/8”.

But some notes:

- The truck does not ever sit level side to side. And that makes the measurements different on each side of the truck.

- Sidewall measurement is somewhat dependent on PSI.

- Visually, to my eye, the tread creates the line on the tires that would make them appear flush with the fenders. To align the tread with the fenders the front needs to come out 2-3/8” and the rear 2-1/2”.

- All of these measurements would change with different tires.

Thank you for taking the time to figure it out :) Now I can play with the offset visualizer online and see what I need to do for the Toyo 37x12.5 AT3's to get them as close to flush as possible.
 
@soop How does this look? (re-using OEM rims) Note that Toyo is 36.5" inflated dimensions, which is why I didn't put 37 in the calculator below:

I’m not entirely sure how to read that thing. If outter sidewall means the sidewall you see, then these would be sticking out ~1.5”. So the edge of the tread would be roughly aligned with the face of the fender at top center with factory tires (on factory wheels at least.)

You mentioned the factory needs to come out around 2-3/8".

On the visualizer with the larger tires, it reports that the sidewall would be 2.4" further out.
 
Then that’d do the trick if that’s the look you’re going for (sidewall sticking out a bit with treads lined up with fender.)
 
Please .. don't have your tires stick out past the fender. I have 3 paint chips and 1559 miles on my truck.
