Polished wheel is a 15x8 with a 4 inch backspacing or.. What I believe to be a -12 offset

Hi EF2,
That is correct, no front bumpstops, the tire contacts the inner fender to act as my bumpstop........

My wheels are the 17x7.5 with 30mm offset from an 07 Titan (according to partsgeek: https://www.partsgeek.com/catalog/20...xle/wheel.html )
I am running 205/50/17 to stay ~1.5% of the factory tire size that my truck came with so my speedo wasn't way too far off. I have 4wd fenders on the front and I did have to use a scissor jack and a 1x4 to stretch the rear fender opening to keep from eating the tire with the rear fender.
They initially poked out but I was able to push the fender edge out enough so that they tuck pretty well.

sick. thanks for the replies guys. i’ll probably get 4wd front fenders at some point since my driver one is kinda messed up near the corner light. i’m pretty sure i’m gonna go with the 15x8 with a 4.5 backspace and some 205/50 yokohama s drives. leafs should be here today and radius rod bushings later this week. should be doing everything this weekend and probably order wheels, tires and lug nuts this weekend. i’ll get pics as i go, maybe i’ll figure out how to resize them too lol.

I’m not a fan of them but spiked lug nuts seem to be popular
