Offset 20 would push the wheels out almost 1.4" from stock. Offset 14 will push them out 1.6". I would suggest the +20 offset. My wheels are +25 and I would not want them out any further, as at stock heights you can rub the fenders and liners with wider and taller tires on. If you lift you have a bit more freedom.

Depends, If that's an 8 inch wheel, a 5.75 backspace will push the tire 1 inch out. If a 10 inch wheel, 2 inches out.

I have a 38 ET with a 9.5" wheel and the 275/60 18's sit about 1/4" outside the fender but it still have close to stock backspace so it gives it a very aggressive look. It also keeps a good geometry for going over obstacles by keeping the inside of the wheel closer to the diff.

I have looked through almost all the pics in this thread. I am wondering...anyone running aftermarket wheels but using the stock tires on their cars? I am considering that to save a few bucks and not waste my new tires on my new GC I bought 2 weeks ago.

why not sell your stock wheels and tires? Still should be able to get at least $100 per tire and probably about $125 per wheel for a quick sell. I sold my stock wheels and tires for $800 total. New was $1500, spent $700 out of pocket. I sold cheap to get rid of them but you can get more.

I am actually considering that but I don't know how long it would take to sell the wheels. There are so many mods I want to do at one time! Haha!

I saw this package on Quadratec and have been researching combo buys on google but haven't found too many: http://www.quadratec.com/products/92...0X_P4_B_PG.htm

That is why I sold them "cheap". I had them sold (email agreement) within 24 hours of being posted on CL. I had the new ones put on the day I sold them then first thing next day i did the transaction locally.

I actually have a delimma and can't decide what i want to do. I am considering the 2.5" lift first and decide on wheels/tires later on. After the lift is done, i can run a different size tire based off what i learned here. I am still trying to understand offsets and backspacing despite all the googling i do. I have an understanding of it though so ill keep reading up here on the forum.

On the flip side, i can skip the lift and run a combo that works at stock height plus a leveling kit. It depends on how much i want to get into it in the end.

Will these work for me?

Sorry if this is something that might have already been discussed or answered here. I'm not too well versed on tire sizes and what can and can't be installed but I have an interest in Goodyear Assurance Tripletread tires but they don't seem to be in the stock size. I have a Laredo X and will be getting 20" wheels to replace the stock 18s and I basically want to know if I can use these tires or if I should just look for something else. I do no off-roading at all and I'm just looking for a decent quality all weather tire around the price that the Assurance sell for to go with my new wheels when I get them. Below is the link to Good Year's site for the tires and they have all available sizes listed. I'm just not sure what I can and cannot do. Any suggestions or information will be appreciated.

Thanks.

This website is pretty helpful because you can put the size of the tires you have now and the new ones and compare their dimensions really easily. It also shows you the difference you'll see on your speedometer if you get bigger/smaller tires

I think I has posted that on the other wheel thread. I found it to be the best by far.

So with stock set up what would be the largest height tire I can run? I have 17 inch wheels on a 4x4 laredo,A few tires I have looked at are 31.6-31.8 tall. I like the cooper st max, 31.85 and general grabber at2 235/80/17 are 31.8 and the 265/70/17 31.6

Thanks
