Hey fellow Beast Tamers
I'm looking at ordering a new set of shoes for my beast and wanted to run this by the hivemind before I pull the trigger on custom rims.
I've got a stock suspension setup that I'm quite happy with, but it's time for tires and I felt that now would be as good a time as any to get into a square setup to both allow for tire rotation and reduce understeer.
I've already converted to Vorshlag 75mm Studs, and I want to make sure what I'm ordering is going to work the best.
A traditional square setup with 4x Style65 rear wheels gives you 18"x9.5 wheel at +22mm. Given that I'm not married to OEM sizes, is this still the best size to order if I'm planning on sticking with a stock suspension setup? What size front spacers should I use for this setup? I don't care about hellaflush and have no desire to roll or tuck fenders.
Any help from you geniuses would be much appreciated!
3mm spacers on front should give you just enough space to clear the struts. Can still seat the wheel on the hub. 275/35-18's all around. The favorite tire around here is the Mich PSS, although there are a few other alternatives.
If you have studs and nuts, get some plastic black covers, from 5 feet away, they will look like bolts.
