Fitment Question..............

Ok, so im thinking of running 33x12.50 toyo m/t's when i put my 3" BL on......... the thing is i want to run an 18" rim so bad i cant stand it. The specifications for the rims are as follows:

18x9.5
Offset: -19
Backspacing: 4-1/2
Bolt Circle: 5on 4.5


What do you wheel gurus think? And here is the wheel for reference

its got stock backspacing so it should be good, but im not so sure if the -19 offset matters or not....

hot wheels by the way, you should get them

edit: didnt see tire size.. id consider going with 10.5 wide if at all possible, or try to find some wheels with a 3.5 bs or close to that....

stockish backspacing with wider tires usually rubs on the swaybar at full lock. mine does.

not a huge deal, but some might not like it. do some measuring and see if it will clear.

Well, i dont see how the rubbing could be any worse than running a 33x12.5 on the stock 15x7's..... if it rubs a little at full lock then thats something i can deal with.

cause the wheel is 1.25" wider on each side... then a stock wheel and it also flares out the sides of the tires more then a 7" rim... you might have issues with the spindle where the ball joint is hitting on the tire idk i would have to start mesureing in the wheel well to find out

if the backspacing is the same then wouldnt that just make the rim stick out 2.5" more outside the fender? it shouldnt pull the rim any more in than with the stockers. or am i missing something.

this is correct.
the rub compared to a 33x12.5 on a stock 15x7 will be different due to sidewall shape. i cant imagine it being any worse though.
