Hey guys just wondering if anyone can give me some info on my size limitations on my 2012 4WD crew cab Z85. Looking to put 265/60r18 with 18x9 xd hoss on stock with no lift. If anyone has any info let me know!!
That's probably going to be tight. The calculator says it will fit, but I can't wrap my head around it.Thanks for the reply and yes the stock wheels i have are 235/75r16
The rims I am looking at are xd hoss 18x9 with 18mm offset and a Backspace of 5.71" Also I'm looking at 265/60r18 Goodyear wrangler duratracs and the approved with for that size is 7.5-9.5" so i should be in the clear.
Im just hoping that increase of 1.5" isn't too much and will cause rubbing on stock suspension
The only difference in the wheel with the -12 offset is the front is 1" deeper and the back is one inch shallower, otherwise it is exactly the same. By going to a nine inch wide wheel, you increased the width of the wheel by three inches over stock. You increased section width of the tire by 1.25 inches, that is why you will rub the the sway bar when turning. Not to mention, I beleive the stock wheels for your truck are 6" wide, which means they probably do not have a 5.5 inch BS from the factory, probably more like 4.5" on a 6 inch wheel. When I first lifted my truck I kept my stock wheels and went one inch wider and one inch taller on tires and rubbed the sway bar before I reached full lock while turning. Z71 wheels have about a 5.25 or 5.5 BS from the factory and are seven inches wide.Yeah they have the -12 offset but I didn't like the look of it.. of course i would have to get fender flares either way but its crazy how increasing the width of the tire wheel set up but 1" total will get me closer to the sway bars. Im looking into a leveling kit also, should make it look a little meaner..
Guess i got some work to do haha thanks for the help guys
This is a great idea. Eight inch wheel with a 4.5 or 5 inch BS would do nicely on your truck. You could probably even get away with a 5.25 BS.If your not lifted at all imo id go with a little narrower wheel, you can always use spacers to get out further if you needed to
