Novak i plan on getting 20 the reason i want lots of positive on the wheels is because i am building a 55 chevy on a dmax frame and the front need to go in as much as i can. the 2500 was lowered 3 in the front and 5 in the back this brought the front wheels out. i would need something like plus 80 been looking but cant seem to find anything with big positive offset. any help would be appreciated













thanks Denis

Most stock wheels are positive offset most aftermarket wheels are negative. You aren't really going to find more than a +24 positive

Even at that you can start rubbing things on the frame etc pretty quick with wide tires.

So ultimately you want them sucked in like a rat rod? The reason I asked wheel size is because the calipers and brake are 16” until 07.5’ and then they moved to 17”
The stock wheel size (on WT/LT 07.5’) was a 17” +10 offset
I’m running my winter wheels and they are 17” +18 offset and I had to reroute my wheel speed sensor lines because the gap between the wheel and the spindle was that tight something like 3/8”
Keep in mind that what you’ll need to clear is your spindle at anything over +20 so I would measure your spindle and see how big of a wheel you need to go over that.

Default lowered truck pics

Brock is right though on finding anything more than +24
That’s gonna be a custom built set if it’s even possible

Where did you figure +80?
