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
Im 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 youll 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.

Brock is right though on finding anything more than +24
Thats gonna be a custom built set if its even possible

Where did you figure +80?

Does anyone have a LML with more then shackles? I want to go lower but the only way I see is start removing springs since the front spring bracket is welded to the frame..
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Mine is lowered with 2in drop shackles and overload springs are removed. I don't really tow super heavy so weight capacity is really not a issue.
