I want to do a 20x22 set on my ssr.. so what is the WIDEST you can do on the rear without modifications and still keeping it a fender flushed(or slightly tucked in) setup..do not want the wheel to stick out the wheel well at all..the truck is completely stock(suspension wise)..Hope to finally see pics and get a actually answer to this question lol..From what i hav seen 20x8.5 and 20x10 are very popular..could you do a 10.5 or 11 on the rear? without getting into problems?
Thanks guys very much!!!
The front is 8" already and the rear is 10". You can push the front to 9" if you have the additional offset to the inside, but it is not easy to do. We are really hard on front tires with the stock wheels and the additional 1" on the inside is not worth it.....
There is enough room on the rear for 12" wheels. You will have to be very careful of the offset you use. You can add 1" to both the inside and the outside of the wheel. This will put you really close to the fender, but leaves about 1/4" to 1/2" clearance.
In order to avoid the issues that Smokey had with blue truck, you will need to be mindful of the OD on the tire. The 305/40-22 that they installed were over 2" taller than the OEM size and really filled up the wheel well. If you stay with the same outside diameter tires, you can get a lot under there..... you just won't have any sidewall. (305/30-22 is the same OD as the OEM tires.....)
