    I just got 285/70/17 terra grapplers on my 2011. The tires rub on the upper A-arm, so I'm looking for rims with an offset to fix this. I can find rims with a different offset but the are all wider so over all it only gives me a few millimeters more clearance and I looking for about an inch more clearance from the upper A-arm. Anyone know of any rims that work or are spacers and must? thanks in advance.

    Backspacing is what is important, not offset.

    Wheels of the same offset can give you more or less clearance depending on their width.

    what is the current backspacing of your rims. If they are stock , they will be 5.5"....4.5" backspacing will cure most of your rubbing.
