    Just did a level to the front end of my 2016 with Bilstein 5100's. Now the front tire rubs on the skid plate when I turn all the way. Anyone know if an 8" width wheel with a +35 mm offset will look about the same as an 8.5" width wheel with a +25 mm offset? Need something to bump the stock wheels out a little so the tires don't rub. The stock wheels are a +60 mm offset if I remember right, so 8" width with +35 mm should push the wheels out about an inch, right?

    8" with +35mm offset is 5.878" backspacing
    8.5" with + 25 offset is 5.734" backspacing

    The 8" with 35 offset will actually cause you to rub skid plate slightly more as it will bring the tire in 0.144" closer to the frame.

    Just zip 1/2" off each side of the skid plate with a cuttoff wheel. That's what most of us have done.

    Thanks @jberry813 - appreciate it. May just cut the skid plate. How much wider will the 8" wheel with a +35 mm offset be than the stock 8" wheel with a +60 mm offset (I think)?

    Thanks. I was wondering if it was as simple as just converting the difference between 60 mm and 35 mm. Again, appreciate the help!
