    On 18x9 rims with 295 70 18 tires with a 3 in lift what would a good offset be? I'm going to be putting fender flares on my truck and don't want them to be sucked in to far and look dopey

    +12 to +18 should do the trick

    Do not get 18 mm offset if you are planning not to get flares. The sides of your truck will thank you for it. Also in PA, if you have tires beyond fender, it's illegal. Check your state law.

    Each Tundra seems somewhat different from another. Here's mine with Bushwacker fender flares. My wheels are 18x9 18 mm offset. Tires are 295/70/18. Mine seems to be pushed out more than GNTundra's.

    Wheel experts, if our truck is 60mm offset stock and I think 9 inch wide rim? Correct if im wrong.. -13 offset would be a difference of 73mm, BUT if our new wheel is a 10 or 11 inch wide, does that also add to how much further the wheels will stick out past fenders,

    Would a 22x11 -18 offset stick out further than a 22x10 -18 offset??

    That's not helping thanx tho. I know what offset is. I'm assuming with the 1 inch wider wheel with same tire, same offset, it would stick out further???

    Yes, the wheel will stick out 1/2" out further. But the same tire size on either one will stick out the same. If you're going for visual sticking out, you have to go by tire width.

    Jay, here's a little pic to help you understand. You see the 11" wheel stick our 1/2" more. Whatever the offset, it'll stick out 1/2" more than the 10". (1/2" to the outside and 1/2" to the inside) But when you put the same size tire on either wheel, they'll stick out exactly the same. The narrower wheel will just look a little deeper. So when you're trying to determine how far you want to stick out, it only depends on offset and tire width.

    I also have the flares and first thought about the +18. But on a lot, they still seem a little too tucked in. So I thought about a +1. Even that didn't seem enough. So I've been thinking about the -12 now. I want the tires just slightly outside of the flares.

    A good rule of thumb:smaller the offset, more rubbing problem you will get. Typically, with 0 offset, the maximum tire size is 33 inches. Anything larger, you will have to do some serious cutting.
