    Okay, thanks. What would be the best offset to run for big tires on a 11.5 or 12" rim? Just so if I decide to get other wheels I know what to look for in the offset. Sorry for all the questions.

    You'd ideally want something around a 50-55mm offset depending on the width, either way you will end up hammering your wheel wells in. If you went with a smaller offset you could probably get away with less hammering but then you risk your tire hitting the quarter panels. Do you have an adjustable panhard bar?

    Ah ok, yes I have an adjustable panhard bar.
