Options for aftermarket 18" that won't stick past fender without flares?

    I know this topic has been discussed, and after searching thoroughly here and on Tundratalk, I've come to the conclusion, unless I'm looking for the TRD Pro wheels or the TRD Offroad wheels, there's not much in the way of +60 offset wheels out there.

    I don't really like the stock 18" alloys on my 2016, but I don't really want to turn this truck into a money pit. I can easily see myself getting bushwhackers to accommodate a smaller offset, and then wanting bigger tires, then leveling, etc, etc. While I love the look of lifted trucks, this truck barely sees 16mpg mixed driving bone stock and I drive 40 miles a day, so it's no practical to go dropping 35s and a 3+1 on here.

    So, my plan is to keep my stock 275/65/18s for now, and upgrade to a new wheel, and then probably stay 275/65/18 for my next tire, or go 285/65/18s. I don't foresee me going the flare route.

    I think a +25 or +30 offset would still put me well outside the fender with no flares with these tires, correct?

    Any general recommendations?

    Im having the same problem now, what did you end up doing? From what I can calculate a +35 offset on a 8" wide wheel would push everything out about an inch, and anymore than that I would guess will be outside the fenders. Even going +25 with a 9" wheel (most common) adds about 1.85" of movement which seems like too much for me. Amazing to me how few options there are for +35 offsets.

    I think I'm going to go with KMC Skitch's.

    I just found out they also make an XD Heist in 8" wide +35 offset. You may like the look of that one better. I couldnt find it online anywhere but a local shop said they make it in that size.

    I just bought a +25 offset on a 8.5" wheel after going back and forth forever. It sticks out a little bit but overall the stance looks pretty good. If they had a wheel I really liked for the same cost, I would maybe go with a +35, but the rims I got were fairly cheap and I liked the way they looked. On an 8.5" wheel they are the equivalent of a +31 offset on a 9" wheel.
