    I’m 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?

    I’m going to go with 2 inch collars up front and stock height +2 deavers.

    I don’t 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.

    In retrospect I can see I should have said TIRE RUB. Anyway.... someone just answer my question. :)

    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

    I apologize @Guy, but I just can’t take this thread seriously anymore.

    This talk of collars and you’ll be fine but if it does rub it would only be at full lock...

    Yer killin’ me here Guy...
