    The answers in the first thread you made weren't good enough?

    Good luck finding that. I don't know anyone on this forum that chose that small of an offset. Most of us run around +18 to +25 on a 9" wide wheel (translating to 5.7" to 6" backspacing). Like everyone already said, you're killing yourself with a -12 offset on a 10" wide wheel (5" backspacing). You're wheels stick out a full 1" more than the sweet spot. I clear 35x12.50's with zero rubbing anywhere. Just did a small cab mount chop, snipped 1" off the skid plate and removed the lower front plastic wheel apron.

    You're choices are (in order of best to worst ideas):
    1. Take your losses and sell the wheels and buy ones with the right offset
    2. Get your favorite sawsall, grinder with a cutoff wheel, tin snips, and welder and start cutting the fuck out of your truck. Don't forget to cycle the suspension at full lock/bump.
    3. Install a 6" drop bracket lift.
