    Ive purchased the Zone T5 5" Lift kit for my 17 tundra. I plan on running 35/12.50/18 tires. I also will purchase 1.5"-2" fender flares. Im looking for the right offset to run. Im looking for 18" wheels obviously. lol. Zone recommends a 5.5" backspacing which is a +13 offset. The look I'm going for is to have the wheel/tires poke out about an 1"-2" past the fender flares. Just a wee bit of poke past the flares. Dont want my truck looking like a turtle, or a ford. haha.

    I was thinking of going -12 offset. If anyone has a similar setup, please chime in. I also may take my lift up another inch or 2 with coach builders kit. So I need ideas on what I offset I need to look for to achieve this look.

    Any help (especially specs and pictures) would be greatly appreciated! have good day folks!

    -12 will be good. I'm -25 and mine stick out about 3 1/2 inches past and I don't have any flares

    I had the zone 5 on my 2013 tundra with 35x12.5r20 and 20x10 -12. Had to cut the liner a little bit and the trim the body mount but it was fine. It stuck out 2.5 inches at least without flares I believe

    Yea I think I'm set with -12. but now it seems impossible to find 18x9 with a -12 offset. It seems like 20" wheels have more selection with the -12 range.

    Here's a picture of my +20 offset wheels with 1.25" spacers putting me around a -12 with my flares ...

    rear

    front is more like a -5 since I only used 1" spacers

    I've got rubbing on both front liner and cab mount, but I'm only leveled 3/1 ... maybe that 2 extra inches will help you prevent rubbing

    I haven't seen an 18x9 with much negative offset. Maybe an 18x10. Personally I think I would stick to a 18x9 and 0 offset. No need to go 10in wide. It adds weight to the vehicle. I think like 10lbs of wheel weight is equal to pulling 600 pounds

    the way you have your rear setup is exactly what I'm going for. except I was trying to avoid spacer. I probably would end up considering spacers if I find wheels that I really like.

    These look pretty cool. and its a 0 offset.

    -25 with no flares. You get -12 which is 1/2 inch less out, plus gender flares, you'll be maybe inch or less past your flares

    Nice looking wheels!

    Yeah, when I bought my wheels I did so without the thought that I might end up adding fender flares. After I was shown a great deal on the flares through Craigslist, I ended up buy them and then ended up with the tucked in look ... Not cool, so therefore the spacers :oops:.

    Let me know how it goes imma run the same set up but imma use the TSS rims which are a 20" rim with +50 offset with 35 MT's wondering if ill need spacers to push them past my fender flares or if itll be good enough.

    You'll need spacers if you want them past your fender flares for sure. +50 is almost stock

    I was gonna say, +50 is pretty much opposite of where u want to go if your trying to have em stick out a bit. Actually, see if anyone has ran a +50, that might actually cause rubbing on your shocks and/or springs.

    Wow, +50 offset ... To get it close to a -12 you'll need nearly 2.45" spacers. Since you're thinking about using 35"x12.5" tires, at minimum I see 2" spacers to get you outside pocket style flares.

    If you want to stick out past the flares, I would say definitely at least a +0. I have +12 and its about even with my BW flares. I thought about spacers too, but I am not interested in a BC.

    I am running the Zone kit.

    I have a couple pics in my gallery. I have about 8k miles on my lift so far, so good. Now, that I think about it, I am not totally sure the +0 will stick out, but mine seem to be about dead even or may be in just a tad. All depends on how you stare at it. I can stare at it all day.

    Thanks for the reply. I'll check out your truck!

    Just saw your pics. Awesome truck man. I love black on black but hate the attention and care needed for black vehicles which is why I went the next darkest color, MGM. lol
