Default RBP Wheels & offset question
Hi, I'm new here. I've read everything I can find on wheel offset and I understand it for the most part, but I still have some questions.

I put my stock rims on some new winter tires, so I'm looking for new wheels to put on the stock tires for summer. I really like the RBP 85R Voltage wheels but the highest offset they come in is +10. The people at RBP and some other folks I've talked to say this will be OK. But I'm sure the factory +34 offset is there for a reason. I don't want to wear out components earlier than usual or have any other issues just because I like these wheels. I understand that the backspacing would change to about 5.39" and the tires would stick out about .9" more.

I'm also confused because I went to one of the online places, either Tire Rack or Car id, I can't remember, and looked at wheels that supposedly fit my vehicle. However, some of them have notes that say that this wheel is a aggressive fit that requires lift or fender modifications. A lot of these wheels are positive offset and I can't figure out why some that seem to have the same specs (size, offset, backspacing) as others require this.

This site doesn't have RBP wheels so I can't tell if those fall into that category.

Anybody have any input? I don't want to modify my truck, and don't want to negatively affect handling or wear, so if this offset is a bad idea I will go more towards stock. Thanks!

I've got +18 with 325/60 20 tires which are bigger than stock and I'm OK with only going to mid perch. If I had the ability to off road I would probably go from mid perch to top perch or put the stock set back on like I do in the winter. To answer your question though I think a lot of vendors cover their ass by putting that note on there if the wheels aren't the same offset as stock.

9" at a +10 wont cause any issues unless you plan to run a larger tire. My only concern with RBP is all of their wheels are a minimum of 45lbs

Elizabeth, I had a set of RBP's on a F350 the fake lugs turned pink because of the stuff they put on the roads in Colorado. The wheel is poorly finished. They did nothing for me when I found them discoloring half way through winter. I don't know where you live but be aware of this. RBP showed me they do not stand behind their product and have no concern of customer satisfaction.

I try and only speak positive of vendors but these guys did me wrong

Yikes. That's too bad. After paying that much, I would expect more. I really like the look of the wheels, but not if they are poor quality and the customer service is bad. Thanks for the information.
