Front what I read and how I understand it, + offset leads to the tire being further away from the hub which means more wheel bearing wear. Negative offset is closer to hub. So u r 55mm closer to hub than stock and I guess that would be easier for bearings? So my 35mm is 20mm further away from the bearings. That is what I am worried about. ? Is that a legit concern?Been running 0mm offset for 25,000 miles, on Michigan roads..... no issues what so ever.
Why not look for a set of 17" takeoffs around here?So I think I settled in the LT265/65r17. The only issue is getting a wheel with same offset as stock, which is 55mm based on my research. Closest I got was 35mm on tire rack. As I understand things that will bring the wheels and tires out 20mm towards the drivers side curb. This worries me due to added stress on wheel bearing and other components? Is this a legit worry? Seems otherwise I will have to order the OEM 17" wheels then add the tires. I was hoping to get the whole wheel and tire assembly shipped already balanced with tpms installed straight to my door. If 35mm is fine I may do that. Thoughts??
One of the semi-local wheel/tire places here will take the factory wheels/tires as trade in value against purchase of new rims/tires.Why not look for a set of 17" takeoffs around here?
That's good deal. Factory wheels are generally more expensive than aftermarket when new. And takeoffs are generally low mileage and in good shape.One of the semi-local wheel/tire places here will take the factory wheels/tires as trade in value against purchase of new rims/tires.
They sell factory rims for $200. If I wasn't going to a wider tire for my second tire/rims, I would have bought those instead of aftermarket rims.
