For the lowered 2wd guys

Im kind of on the fence with my current truck, Im contemplating getting a 95 2wd instead and lowering it. I was just wondering if anyone is running close to this setup of wheel offset wise.

The wheels im looking at ("measurements 5x114.3/e15F,20R/73")...the rears are:

18x9.5 with a 20mm offset
Id like to run something like a 285/30/18..265/35/18

The fronts are:

18x8.5 with a 15mm offset
and i would run somewhere around a 205/35/18

anyone have any insight? pics? thanks

i see positive offset wheels aka....Front Wheel Drive style with a little lip.....

you'll need to run spacers front and rear to run those wheels.

the wheels im looking at are geared more towards a rear wheel drive import like a 350z like in these pics or a lexus or something...theyre a knockoff on the Volk TE37s..if i were to get this truck i would kind of follow the whole performance car theme

edit: i was under the impression the lower the number the more the rim would stick out? like say for example if i got a 45mm offset, it would tuck in more?..or do i have it backwards?
