I just bought this tire and wheel combo a few weeks ago. Ballistics have the +12mm offset.
Here is what I have to say about it so far.
I have a 2011 CM TRD with ICON remote resi coilovers set at about 2.5" up front and wheelers AAL that raised the back about 3/4".
The tire and wheel combo is absolutely fantastic! It looks freaking mean.
I had rubbing at full lock on the front inside fender well plastic (directly behind the fog lights) that I trimmed per the widely documented mod. Backed it out of the driveway and did U-ey in reverse in the cul-de-sac and realized that I still had rubbing. Stood outside the truck with the SO driving and realized that I was rubbing the front mudflaps (the ones behind the front wheel). Closer inspection showed some pretty good melting of the platic/rubber mudflaps.
I tried cutting the offending piece out of the mudflaps and repeated same reverse procedure. Still had rubbing (in fact it was way louder).
I then totally took the mudflaps off up front. I now have no rubbing but these tires get pretty damn close to rubbing the body mount. I don't feel anything at the steering wheel at full lock or hear any rubbing but I am sure I have no more than 1/16" between the tire and the body mounts at full lock.
The moral of the story is really nothing that a half brained monkey couldn't find out by searching the forums here. I just wanted to remind everyone that for some reason every truck is different when it comes to who can fit what sized tires on their truck with or without a lift. These tires are a 33x11.5 tire and I had both of the most commonly found rubbing issues for 35x12 tires.
I am not a welder/cutter so I now have to figure out where I can get the body mount mod done. Although I am not technically rubbing right now, the clearance is a little too close for my comfort.
