    22×12 -44 offset on 35×12.5 r22

    So i see all you raptor diehards saying you should not run anything more than a positive offset. So what about a -44 offset. Anyone run this on there raptor. I have a set of 18x 9 -12 now and they are fine for the bit of offroad i do so i can always change back to these. I have bought the bushwacker flares and will do some trimming. These is strictly only for street .

    Make sure to check your ball joints and hubs. 0 offset is perfect and doesn’t cause any issues. Negative offset often causes issues when off-roading due to increased load. Just keep an eye on them.

    And I’m talking about going off road...like TRR events. Guys with -12 we’re having issues after multiple events. Standard rule of thumb is don’t go negative if you plan on running it hard off road. Spacers are a no go for sure.

    Yeah im not doing that sort of offroading out here in aus. No doubt i could find some places to jump the beast but i live in Melbourne city and most of the time its my weekend cruiser and since we only sell the ford ranger ( the little sister of the raptor i get alot of praises its quite funny. So i think running -44 i may be the only one in Australia doing it so should be pretty cool. Except for the police will surely be paying alot of attention to me

    I am currently running +8 offset on my 17x9 American eagles, my old scab molten orange and current screw, I like the positive offset it still has a nice stance without going overboard, I use to have 17x9 fuel throttles with 0 offset but they stuck out to far for my taste, any more then 0 or - offset on a 9 inch wide wheel for a raptor doesn't look good imo

    Got the same as tomahawk, AE 17x9 with +8 offset. I wouldn't want them sticking out any further.
