    Hey Guys
    Considering purchasing some 18 x 9 Methods that are +18 offset. Currently have a 2.5" level up front and running 275/70/18's with 1.25" spidertrax spacers. How far will these poke out past the fender without the spacers? Any chance I could still run the spacers? I have bushwhackers that will be here the beginning of next week so I want them just inside the flares.

    Also, whats everyone experience with the TPMS? I thought I read somewhere that the stock ones cant be used on aftermarket wheels? Is this true? I've always just swapped em over. Thanks!

    My last truck, I did have some issues but I think it was the shop and programming. In the end, I went with new sensors since my old ones were 8 1/2 years old. The shop did say I could use the stock ones on aftermarket wheels but figured it was better to get new ones. I also had another shop and the dealer confirm that stock sensors could be used on aftermarket wheels. The battery life was the concern...

    Here are a couple of pictures from some years ago when I still had stock tires on. The wheels are 18x9, 18 mm offset and tires are 275/65/18. I have pocket style Bushwacker fender flares on.

    The right side is almost flush and left side is a little tucked in.

    Here are some comparison shots with 295/70/18 on on the same wheels.

    You could see here the left side is basically flush and the right side pokes out a tiny bit.
