Wheel Offset

Ok I purchased wheels/tires for my 2010 Liberty yesterday late in the afternoon and...

The wheel is offered in two different offsets that fit my application...what difference in looks will this make between these two ??

Both are 17" x 8.5"

One is listed as an offset of 18 and the other is listed as 35. I didn't realize this until I got home and my invoice states that the 18 offset will be ordered tomorrow.

What difference will it make going with the 35 vs the 18 as far as looks and fit ??

The manufacturer is closed until Tuesday so I can't call them for tech info and plan to contact the vendor first thing in the morning if I want the 35 offset instead.

Thanks for any help.

This is the wheel in question...no idea what offset the one in the pic is...

Eitherway you most likely to have rub with a 8.5" wide rim.If your not lifted going with to much offset will cause rubbing issues and tear up some stuff,including your tires.

The OEM rims are 7" wide with 5.5" of backspacing.

Thanks...that was a big help.

I ended up switching my order this morning to 17 x 7.5 wheels and changed my tires from 245 65 17's to 235 65 17's.

I should be good to go with this combo.

This is the wheel...

235 65 17 Is what my 08 limited kk came with. Not sure if you were trying to stay stock size with the tires. Sweet rims though

My stock size is 225 75 16 so I just wanted to bump it up to 17's and either 235's or 245's. I started to go with 18's but split the difference and went 17's instead.

I have 8.5" rims with no rub. Its mainly the diameter of the tire that will cause the rubbing...

Well crap The wheels I liked were 8.5 and also wanted 245's but 'assumed' after much reading here that they would rub still being at stock height.
