Your going to need around a +24 offset and even then will have to trim your splash guards with an olfa knife. That's close to what I'm running and I had to trim my wheel well liners as well as grind and buff about 5/8" off sheet metal on the inner wheel well on 285/70/r18 with +12 offset and 18x9 wheels

Can you clarify what an olfa knife is? Is that a Canadian term?

I've always just called them razor knifes, haha, never knew there was an actual name for the snap off blade style.

Or a box cutter I guess. I was working down in Wyoming a few years back and asked for a felt pen and all the Americans burst out laughing asking me what the **** that was! I said "you know a sharpie or marker" they thought I was nuts

They use Wool pens in Wyoming. :wink2:
I am not the only American who would have known what you meant. We call them felt-tip pens sometimes, but Sharpie has become pretty generic now.
