Does anyone have pictures showing how far tires protrude out with 35mm (or similar) offset wheels (rims) but also with the level kit installed?

Does anyone know how many mm offset the wheels in the front would need to be to put them back to stock width/stance (Stock offset is 55mm for 2017 Ridgeline). So would 35mm rims bring them back out to what stock would have been? I feel like i read somewhere that 15mm was about how much difference there was after the Truxxx level kit.

I'm trying to get an idea if I need to get different offset in the front to match the back width, or if just 35mm in front/back would look fine/noticeable.

Also, would having different offset in front/back be bad for the computer?

Maybe its best to just go 35mm offset all around and be done with it.. just dont watn it to look goofy looking from the front along the side and seeing back tire stick out farther than front..... :nerd:

Maybe Mr. Black or Stantaur? The Truxxx thread has some discussion about this and I think it was Mr. Black who estimated the difference at 5-6mm (post level kit).

Go with the same front and back, do not vary in this aspect or the wheel width. Also if your go 35 mm for an offset then your wheels would be going out 20mm. This is if you stick with an 8 inch wheel. If you went with an 8.5 inch wheel it would go out about 26.25mm......a 9 inch inch wheels sticks out around 32.5mm beyond stock.

Interesting, so calculator says 40mm offset 10.5 inch wide wheels would stick out 53mm more than stock and 22m less inside clearance than the stock 7.5 wide rims. Wonder if this 'max sized wheel' will rub (guessing so).

9.5 with 35mm offset would be 45mm more outside and only 5mm more inside. Since 1.5 inch spacers with + 1 inch diameter tires reports as no rubbing, I guess this would work and probably the most aggressive possible.

Third edit...9 inch wide with 35mm offset will be 1.5 inches more outside and only 1mm more inside. This should work for sure.

My thoughts are to go with 17" wheel/rim that is 8" wide and 35mm offset, then put a 245/70/17 size tire on that, which is about a half inch larger than stock... I dont think the lift changed the offset enough to worry about the difference between front/back, thanks for the replys.

I think your numbers are off...

Stock wheels = 18x8 +55
1 in = 25.4 mm

10.5" wheel = 18x10.5 +40
Wheel difference per side = 10.5in-8in = 2.5in /2 = 1.25in *25.4mm = 31.75mm
Out: 55 - 40 = 15 + 31.75 = 46.75 mm
In: 40 - 55 = -15 + 31.75 = 16.75 mm
Thus the "10.5 wheel" would stick out 46.75mm more, and in 16.75mm more than the stock wheel.

9.5" wheel = 18x9.5 +35
Wheel difference per side = 9.5in-8in = 1.5in /2 = 0.75in *25.4mm = 23.81mm
Out: 55 - 35 = 20 + 23.81mm = 43.81 mm
In: 35 - 55 = -20 + 23.81 = 3.81 mm
Thus the "9.5 wheel" would stick out 43.81mm more, and in 3.81mm more than the stock wheel.

9" wheel = 18x9 +35
Wheel difference per side = 9in-8in = 1in /2 = 0.5in *25.4mm = 12.7mm
Out: 55 - 35 = 20 + 12.7mm = 32.7 mm
In: 35 - 55 = -20 + 12.7 = -7.3 mm
Thus the "9" wheel" would stick out 32.7mm more, and in 7.3mm less than the stock wheel.

On my RTL-T, stock the wheel is ~1.5in (38.1mm) from being even with the fender. Mr. Black stated his front wheel sucked in 5mm after Truxx leveling kit.

Keep in mind we are talking wheels, and not tires. In most truck applications, the tires are wider than the wheels.

Does anyone know what the load rating for stock rims are. I have been looking for 17" rims, but want to make sure i am at or above the load rating.
Thanks,
