Truck will be black. I’m excited for it. Just have to figure out if a level is needed. I don’t want to give up ride quality.
I hear you. That is why I did not rush into buying aftermarket wheels with a wonky offset. The TE’s are not cheap but worth every penny! 18 lbs a wheel and Forged.

Whats the verdict with 17x9 +0 offset wheels? do i have to be worried about damaging my fenders under full compression? stock 35 truck, every wheel i like seems to be +0 offset, i dont mind the little bit of poke but i just want to make sure its not gonna damage my truck if a go offroad...
With the GEN3 fenders I think you’re good with 35’s.

Was it lifted when you first put on the 37s as that is a big lift and one of the pics I saw it looked a lot more conservative.
Nope straight install when I signed for truck. I didn’t get levels on until a few weeks later

That’s what I thought, so then those pics I saw were with 37s and NO lift. Good to know as I don’t plan on lifting my truck as all the lifts seem to lift the front too high if not lifting the rear.

Thanks for the reply.

Just to be sure, this pic was before the lift and with 37s?
Yep! Taken may 14, the day after delivery. Photo below is June 22 and you can see the level, lighting and bedrack RTT added.

Nice looking rig. I dont presume you ever rubbed with those 37s at stock height and those 0mm offset wheels? I am getting Icon +6mm so I should have about 1/4" less offset than you, but not sure if that would make a difference or not if you had any rubbing issues.

Thanks! Always something to go on a raptor. Trying to change tires and ordering a bumper. I don’t recall rubbing

Ok, this is maybe a stupid question, but this is my first truck and I haven’t looked into wheels at all. Mine is having stock base 35”, what would be the best all around wheel-tire combo you would recommend? I’m definitely not knowledgeable about all the tunings…. Appreciate all suggestions including “no this is not for newbie”!
