Wheel Help

Hey NH...thanks for the info. There were a couple of American Racing rims that I also was looking at...the Victor and the Mojave. I emailed American Racing...gave them my truck and the wheels I was interested in. They said both...but especially the Mojave would definitely stick out. They were pretty quick in their response. You are right though....this is more of a mess than it should be. The people I am dealing with for the Smoothie II's are really good. They gave me the exact measurementts for the standard 20" wheel and tires that come on the RAM...to include the sidewall bulge...and then compared that to the wheels I am going to order. After the research though....and being told by one shop that a wheel tire combo will fit perfectly...while another shop said there would be problems...makes it really hard to trust these people...especially if you are doing mail order...which of course is where the best prices are.

Wheel Help

Hey guys,let see if I can help with the trouble you are having .The wheels you are looking at. The eagle alloy wheels have a (-4mm) offset. That should be pretty clos to stock. Remember this, If the offset is positive, the wheel will tuck. If the wheel offset is negative, it will have a deep dish and will stick out. A zero offset is stock for dodge ram, I beleive. if you want them to stay under the well you've got to find a medium offset (+15 to +25) no more. Good luck however because the 5x5.5 bolt pattern is used primarily for the dodge trucks and as I said the stock offset is about zero.

Thanks Gibby. Getting to the point I am just going to forget it. Just too expensive an item to buy and not be happy with it. I DO appreciate your response though and it sounds pretty accurate. They must be telling me to get a positive offset rim to keep the tire tucked( because the aftermarket rims are wider than the stock ones I guess).

I seem to recall seeing one rim I looked at somewhere for the Dodge ram as having a 0 offset? Can't recall?

just measure the backside spacing of the wheels yo u have and you'll probably find it is 5.0-5.5"
most after market Chinese wheels are much less, so
therefore they stick out. Weld, Centerline,
and American Eagle may be the only US built wheels.
