-12 offset with stock suspension

I just bought a ‘19 ram 2500 and want to put 295/70/18 on the truck. I was looking at the 18x9 method mesh wheels with a -12 offset. Anyone running the same size tire with -12 offset wheels? Do they rub? I want to keep the truck stock but may have to level it.

33’s would likely work but I’m almost certain 35’s would rub.

Stock wheels are like +44mm offset or close to that. So do the math.
Gain 1/2" track width due to the 1" wider wheel and about another 2-1/4" with the offset difference and a smidge with wider tires, so they'll stick out close to 4" further.
If you're ok with that then leter rip. Not brodozer wide, but a bit more than I'd like. Big fender flares will be on tap unless you're ok with slinging ____ all over the side of the truck and chipping the paint up.

For only 295 tires, I agree, I'd stick with more like a +18 offset.

So the closer to zero and below the further it will stick out? What will keep it flush or just barely sticking out with a 295/70/18?

I currently have 295/70R18 on my stock truck on stock wheels with no rub at all with tons of clearance.

Looking good there. I don't like the tread sticking out, looks like crap.

Luckily mine don't stick out at all. They aren't even flush with the fender flares.
