      hey guys, thinking about getting a new set of rims for my '99 5.0 explorer XLT to freshen the look up a little. its currently got the stock 15x7's (i assume 7's) and stock 235's on it. the truck has 165k miles on it but has been very well maintained (family bought it new in '99).

      im thinking about running an 8 or 9" rim, what offset would i need to get the wheels flush with the fenders? I'd prefer not to run spacers. i looked through some of the stickies, but i figured since there are a bunch of guys on here with lowered x's and big rims that this should be a fairly straight forward answer. thanks for the help guys :):salute:
