    Default help with wheels please

    ok. im sure im going to get 20x9 xd badlands for my truck , just not sure which offset i should get. i understand how the offset works and all but still not sure which is best.

    it seems to me like the (-) offset would be less likely to scrub than the (+). any help would be appreciated. so negatives scrub less? badlands come in -12 and +18 offset. thank u

    Not necessarily true. Negative offset pushes the wheel out which can also lead to rubbing. I ran into this with my wheels. I went with a zero offset when I should have gone with a positive offset to keep it from rubbing when I turn.

    It also depends on tire size. What size tire are you gonna run?

    Stock offset is +31mm, so use that as your baseline. -12mm will push the tires out approx.1 3/4 inches, +18mm will only push them out about 1/2 an inch. (13mm = 1/2") So the best thing to do is go out and turn the wheels to full lock in both directions and do some measuring , on the inside of the tire and out. And take into account the tire width and possible suspension travel, and also what the lift kit you are using requires. Some kits specify certain offsets so the tires don't rub on the new suspension components.
