I'm going to get my first set of rims for the box. And I'm driving myself insane with what ones I should get

I want deep dish rims with out getting fender flairs or wide body kits.

Anyone have anything good?

How wide do you want to go and also how big. My best suggestion would be to get something like a 18x8.5 or 9 with like a 10-20 offset and probably -3 degrees camber on the back and 2 on the front....that would also include rolling or cutting the fenders....

well I know two people with 4 inches of lip...this is one of thiers specs

17x8.5 +17 offset
17x9 +16 offset

He is dropped very low...He has had to pull, cut, roll, pull again, roll...etc...what suspension are you running it will make a huge difference. If you go air not as much work as it would be with coilovers..

Yea I just have stock set up right now, but do have plans you know. Is there any way to go without the rolled fenders? Like maybe 15 or 16 inch rims?

if you dont plan on dropping it at all then technically a 16x9 will fit with a 4 in lip. if you plan on dropping it then yes rolling and/or cutting is required for that big of a lip... you can get away with fake 2" lips without cutting or rolling though. But if you wanna run with tha big boy lips then you gotta pay to play.

Most have covered the offsets and wheels that you can get, but I will say, you're going to have to roll your fenders if you want to be low.

You can have a 4 inch lip and not roll your rear fender, you just won't be that low.
