Help me decide!!!

Guys, I need some assistance. I need your input as to what wheels to go with and what size for a set of Nitto Terra Grapplers. Your input is appreciated!!!!!








And size, I'm stuck between 285/65/R18 E, and 275/70/R 18 E.

Which do you like?

I like Goliath and XD Addict. But are you planing to lift your truck or keep it stock? What offset will suit your needs? If you are gonna keep it stock, I would say get Goliath with 275's. I like 285's, but 285's are substantially more expensive than 275's.

I'll be keeping the truck stock height. I'm not worried about the price of the tires since I won a set from Nitto So.... won't have to worry about offset etc. Would you still stick with the 275 or go 285 with that?

275/70/18 is roughly 1/2 inch taller and 285 is about 2/5 inch wider. If I were you, I would go with 285. I like wider tires.

By the way, congratulations.

Well after doing some research I found that if I want to keep everything stock (which I do), I will have to stick with a 275/65/R18 for a 18x9 wheel with a +18 offset. Does this sound correct to you guys?

For these tire sizes, even the stock wheels are okay (+60 offset or + 50 for Rock Warrior). Lower offset simply means that it will be pushed out of the wheel well more.

Offset becomes more problematic if you want to fit larger tires. The safe offset for larger tires is around 35mm. Anything lower, you risk having to modify the body mount. Anything higher, you risk rubbing the skid plate or uca.

I got 18 mm offset with stock tires and it sticks out roughly about 1 inch beyond the fender. I like to get Bushwacker pocket style fender flares, so I wanted them to stick out more than the stockers. If I were not interested in fender flares, I would go with Goliath (safe offset in case i want to go with a larger tire and I really dig their looks).
