    Hey guys, looking for a decent aftermarket wheel that will fit the LT275/70R18 without a leveling kit or a bigger lift.

    Can't seem to find an 18x8 with a 6x139 and -12mm (or other negative). Will an 18x9 fit these tires?

    I've been looking at method and fuel 18x9 wheels. Thanks!

    Yes they will fit. Be sure to measure the back space on the 18x9’s if they’re to deep they might rub the suspension. I recommend a-12/-18 wheel.
    Look at RBP wheels. That’s what I put on my 2500

    Those wheels are high quality for sure! I'll have to check out RBP wheels. What are the specs on your Nittos?

    Thank you, McBroom!

    35x12.5/20” I’m going with a 37x12.5-20 M/T on the next set of Nitto’s. Next Christmas

    There is no way in hell I would go with a negative offset wheel like that, especially with a truck on stock suspension. That will just look goofy as hell in my opinion.

    No not necessarily. The neg offset just moves the wheel further out of the wheel well to widen the stance a bit. A neg 12 offset is almost 1/2” a neg 18 is a tad over 3/4”.
    Think old school... deep dish wheels or even the reverse wheel. It’s the exact theory.
    All factory wheels are a positive offset +**
    Look at some of the pics on @customwheeloffsets they’re a preferred vendor here

    -12 offset really isn’t much of a offset tho
