Looking to replace my 37pp OEM wheels with something more practical for what I plan to do with the truck. I’m running stock suspension, leveled with RPG collars in the front. Don’t plan on changing my suspension at all and want to continue running 37s. I off-road about once a month, Southern California/Arizona desert trail mostly. Baja run planned for next late next year. Going to buy 6 wheels as I want 2 full spares. There are dunes out where I go off trail so I need a wheel I can bring down to those low pressures. I’ve heard Method 704 bead grips are a good option for what I want to do but want to see if anything else recommends something specific for what I plan to do. Would also love a tire recommendation. Something practical and good for the amount of off-roading I do (10-12 trips per year) with a full Baja run planned for next year. Don’t know a lot about wheel offsets but I think I want something offset. Enlighten me please, I’m new to this.

I'd be happy to help get you dialed in. For what you're wanting to do and how much you're off pavement, the Method Trail Series wheels (7xx) will all be great options with their Bead Grip technology.

As for fitment, the standard fitment that most do is 17x8.5 0 offset. This will give you some poke, but if you want to stay closer to OEM fitment, then you can go with 17x8.5 +25. This will stick out 9mm over stock and give you stock like fitment. But be forewarned, the +25 offset is not available in all Method wheels, so you will have a few less options to choose from.

If you wanted to keep your stock tires until they wore out, any of these Method 17" options would work for you. If you're looking to go with something a little more off-road oriented, you just need to determine how aggressive you want to go and if you want to stick with AT, go to MT, or land somewhere in the middle with a hybrid terrain.

Personally, I like Nitto Ridge Grappler and Trail Grappler, Mickey Thompson AT and MT, and Toyo RT, RT Trail, AT3, and MT.

Happy to help go over options and find what's right for you. Feel free to send me a PM if you'd like to chat.
