    Living in British Columbia, they will be laying down sand and gravel all winter long. The offset of my winter rims was a little more then I anticipated, and I am curious if that will cause all that sand and gravel to blast my paint and body. Can anyone tell me if I should be concerned?

    The winters are Nokian Hakkapeliitta LT2 275/70 r18 - Factory Studded
    The rims are Procomp series 32

    I had to remove the small mud flaps at the front of the wheel well, and that seems pretty good. No cutting or trimming, but possibly a heat gun and a little plastic pushing

    To add, you can get a thin duraflap to stop most of the road debris.

    Fender flares should be considered. You can always take them off in the spring.

    Also, gravel & rocks could also be thrown up at the vehicle behind you ... not cool.

    Looks good in my opinion. Yes you will get some stuff flung up on the truck.

    Custom offset is a great site! I would definitely stay near +35mm if possible,

    So thanks for all the advice. Shop was great and took back the rims and replaced them with these. Not a 100% sure, as they are a little glossy, but will soon be covered grit and dust from BC highways.
