    Default 2010 Silverado wheel question?

    Hey guys i have a 2010 silverado crew cab Z71 with 18" stock wheels. I'm looking into buying a new set of wheels. I know that my stock wheel offset is like a +31 I have been reading around and most say that i should go below a +18 offset to keep the tires from sticking out past the fenders. Im planning on keeping my stock 265 tires for now and may upgrade to 285 down the road. Im also going to put on a Rough country 2 inch leveling kit. The wheels I have picked out so far are the Vision Warriors in black and 18" they are available in either +25 or +18 offset. My question is which offset do you think i will be better off with and will i have any tire fitment issues with these wheels and the leveling kit now and in the future when i get 285's and help or info would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the club. I'd go with the +25, its closer to the factory wheel off set.

    It depends on how wide a rim you are going to get because this will also have an effect on how far the "stickout" will be. For example your factory 18's are 8" wide so if you go with a 9" rim at 31mm offset it will stick out 1/2" more than your current set up, factor in 18mm offset and that will put them out about another 1/2 for a total of 1" over the stock set up.
