Does anybody know if this measurement will fit out trucks?

18x9
Offset: +24 mm.
Backspacing: 5.95 in.

or

18x10
Offset: +22 mm.
Backspacing: 6.38 in.

What tire size? Drop? I'm running 17x9 +10 all around lowered 4/5. 4x4 fenders, the front don't rub, I've rolled the rear so it don't rub any more.

I am doing a 5/6 drop with rolled fenders and running a rear sway bar. Tires im not sure yet probably a 245/45-18 or 255/45/18 it all depends on how much of a stretch i would need to avoid rubbing on the fenders

At the moment I've got 245/45 but I usually run 225/45 . The 245 ain't hardly stretched at all. I like the 225 better.

The amount of stretch depends on how wide the rim is.....

TSW VALENCIA 18X9.5 WITH 235's up front and 295-38-18 out back !
Up front, why such a wide wheel and a narrow tire?

Why not just get a 18 x 8?

Ya got a little mexipoke going on out back, I hope you never have to use it as a truck..

You can pull the bedsides outwards about 2" to get it a little closer..

I'd say it needs a little drop, but you mite be limited with your wheel/tire selection.

All in all, it's a good looking setup.

I'll be stuffing some meats and tucking soon.. 265's possibly.. :waytogo:

Chris, enlighten us on this statement. I'm using wheels off a stang as well and the offset makes them poke out a bit. I put the later model fenders on the front but am not sure what to do in the back. Thought about the Bushwacker Street flares. Here is my set up

I'm rockn a set of 17x9.5 gay azz mustang rims, I put on the 4x4 fenders also an I ended up running a 225/45. Its pretty well hella flush now.

Thick gloves

Pull the bedside out by the upper lip of the rear wheel opening.
I got about 2" more out of doing this.

Now the tire/wheel is more flush.
