Default Can we talk rim rub?
Iím thinking of going with 18x9.5 +6 offset wheels with 305/60/18 true 35 inch cooper st Maxx tires.

Is anyone running something similar?

Iím going to go with 2 inch collars up front and stock height +2 deavers.

I donít want to get into a running mess. I could also go 295 which is 34.3.

Thoughts welcome

Sounds like a rim job is needed to get things to fit nicely

You guys aren’t right.

Can't say I know for sure but think it'll be close but may be fine

Normally on standard 17x8.5 a +6 offset with no lift is close, but likely doesn't rub in any turning scenario on level ground (some people have reported a 0 offset does slightly)

Wider wheels push the outer edge of wheel out, but tire usually bulges out further than wheel, so it won't be 1:1 with how much further the edge of tire sticks out.

I think ChevyChad thinks it's not much, if any at all - I would think it may be pushed out slightly at the widest point, I'm not sure though... depends on tire deformation

Also depends on tire profile - yours is a true 35 so perhaps that may hurt as well / depends on sidewall lugs.

All this to say I think it'll be close - don't think it'll be too bad if it does rub, and likely only at full lock
