Hey Gents, Need some grandniece with the purchase of some 20" rims & wheels for my Rebel

I'd like to go with 35" and I know there have been some slight issues with rubbing but it can be corrected by cutting away some plastic.

The Rims in question are available in a 18 mm offset which is the same as stock (from what I understand) and a -12 mm offset which would mean they stick out a bit further.

I might like the look of the slightly wider stance.

My Questions are:

1. Would a set of the -12 mm offset not rub with the 35" tires

2. Would a set of bushwacker or Lund pocket style fender flares typically stick out enough to compensate for the -12mm offset. prefer not to have the side of the truck stone chipped up.

3. Any warranty issues? as I've heard the more the offset the harder on wheel bearings, would the dealership say "tough luck"

4. Or do I just purchase the 18 mm rims and keep'er stock , stock flares, cut the plastic and carry on.

sorry for all the questions it's just a fair bit of $$ I'm going to put out and I want to do it right !!

Thanks !!

After doing all the math it comes down to mine setup is -32 mm offset. With 33 12.5 20 how it sits with fender flare give you an idea.

Fuel octane. Would prefer hostage III but are back order every where I tried. Fender flare are flare1one on eBay buy with confidence as good as 500 bucks name brand one you know which one I am talking about.
Also mine are 0 offsets with 2 inch spacers that equals - 30 mm offset. I would recommend - 24 mm offset if you like my setup so you don't have to install spacers.
Badging is very easy to remove use regular sewing thread and honeydew nail Polish remover to get rid of sticky residue. Plus point she will feel honored her stuff contribute to make your truck badass. I am sure this Christmas party her coworker will bring up how use full her acetone bottle around household.

Thanks for the advice , really appreciate it I'll probably order the rims tomorrow. Then decide on the tire height after doing more research if the 35's will fit.

Also depends on the width of the rim for rubbing. The further the outer edge is from your hub, the more swinging motion it will have. My 10 inch wide rims with -24 offset, and 35 inch tires rub, I had to pull the fender liner tight at the bottom then raise the front up a little bit more, rubs a bit at full lock

Id also like to put 20 inch rims with 35's on , with 9 inch wide rims . Would a set of rims that have a -12 offset , be less likely or more likely to rub then a +18 offset

Thanks ,

I have already use the H&R wheel spacers, but lately, I want to change the new, so I choose the china wheel spacers brand. I personally feel that his quality is as good as H&R, especially it provide 10 years warranty. I love it.
