anyone??? I currently have factory 15x7" and 235/75r15 rims and tires. I cant find the factory offset.

Of course i do, I just figured some of you guys would already know. Just asking. I know yall get tired of getting these kind of questions, but I dont know who else to ask.

I run a wider tire, it did rub just behind the front wheel where the body cladding meets the body. I cut the corner of the cladding off.

Keep in mind though that I have turned the torsions up and have a body lift.

My wheels are 17X9 with 4.5 Backspace
