Stock tires, the Methods are 1/2 an inch narrower, so the tires bulge out a little bit.
Leveling or lifting? Each has drawbacks and subjective advantages. Leveling doesn't look any better imho and will effect how it sits if you tow. Lifting is a whole other ballpark. You can't lift it without doing a lot of work unless you don't care about preserving off road capability. To properly lift a Raptor and be able to keep/improve off road capability you'll be into it 10-20k.maybe less if you do all the work yourself. Running larger tiresincreases unsprung weight and places additional strain on components unless set up specifically for the increased size. Mall crawlers are a completely different story...you can get away with a lot of you don't care about your suspension or the ability to off road....or looks for that matter...lol
It looks like you are running Method NVs and they are the same size as stock >> 17x8.5. The only difference is offset where NVs are 0 offset and oem is +34.
I did mine with stock size wheels and tires. Added a leaf spring in the rear and rpg collars in front. Lifted about 2 1/2 inches.
My mistake, you are correct on the sizes. I don’t remember the tires looking like that on the stock wheels.
0 offset means your wheels are pushed out 1.3 inches more when compared to oem offset. This gives the illusion that the tires are bigger.
Thank you, I understand offset. I think maybe the tires look different on these rims because the stock rims(centers/spokes) stick out a little and these are dished.
How must does leveling raise the truck? Does it allow enough room for 37's? What is your wheel/tire set up? Looks great. Thanks
**Forget the last question. Just saw it in your signature.
Nice look there. What size wheel/tires? 20 and 35's?
stock. it's tall and wide enough as is
