Thread: Wheel advice

  1. #1

    Default Wheel advice

    I am going to order wheels and tires for my NBS crew cab, I am stuck between the Helo 835 and the Mamba M1. The guy at the tire shop here says that the Mamba will fit using a 275/45/22 or 295/45/22 but with having the negative offset they will stick out so I went to my second option being the Helo 835 which both are 22" balck wheels with either the 275 or 295, but with the Helo I am being told I can go with a 305/45/22... here is where I may seem dumb, is the difference in the 295-305 significant? Does anyone have either of these wheels and if so how far do the Mamba's "stick out" Thank you for any advice you can give....

    so I just talked to a rep at Mamba and they have a +30 offset which is what the NBS has isn't it??? So how would that make the tire stick out the side?

    the stock rims are -31 offset, not +, so no they are different. adn the difference between a 295 and a 305 is maybe 1/2"

    Er, guys......stock rims are +31mm offset. Positive offset means the mounting surface is 31mm from the center of the wheel towards the face. See this thread:
