    I'm looking at some Dick Cepek DC-2s in 17x9 for my DCSB Off-Road.

    My question is how much farther will they stick out vs. the OEM TRD Off-Road wheels

    TRD Off-Road Wheels:
    16x7
    +32 mm offset
    5.25" backspacing

    DC-2s:
    17x9
    - 12 mm offset
    4.5" backspacing

    I looked at the BS and Offset sticky and tried to do the math, but I'm still confused.....

    They will stick out 2.75" more than stock. 0.75 from backspacing, 2" from width

    I think it would be more like 1.75" further than stock. The 2" wider wheel width doesn't all go to the outside, it also goes inside and sits closer to the frame and suspension.

    Backspacing already takes the spacing on the inside into consideration. So all of the extra width gets added to the outside.

    I.e. if you add some of the width to the outside, and some to the inside, you have now changed the backspacing.

    The offset is what gives you the appearance of the "dish" of the wheel ... high neg offset will give you a "Deep Dish " look

    .... of course the bs is part of this too.... large bs will not allow a high neg offset

    So it looks like 2.75"s farther. Do you think this is too much? Or will it be good to go. I want them to stick out a little more, but don't know if the 2.75" will make them stick out too far???

    Should be good to go. Are the 265/70 ATMs approved for 9" wide wheels

    Yes they are. That is why I am going with them. Was looking at Duratracs but the are only good up to 8.5" wheels.

    Dude, that is AWESOME! According to this they new set up will stick out 1.7" more then the OEM set up, which is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for.

    That tool should be sticked or something! And Rep points for you!

    Nice tool indeed. And the discrepancy between what I told you and what it tells you for "how much more it will stick out" is that I was referring to the wheel only. Their calculator uses the tire too. Because the tire is stretched more (9" vs 7"), it will not stick out as far out from the wheel as the stock setup does from the wheel. .

    Yes, I noticed the difference once once the tire was added in as well. The 1.7" with the whole set up made me feel much better then the 2.75" with just the wheel.

    Thanks again!
