I'm purchasing 33" tires, so the +1 offset will work on my Fuel D564. It seems most people go with -12 offset?

I don't plan to off road a lot at the moment, but that can change.

I may go 35" tires some day + 2" lift.

+1 offset a mistake?

I think I got this figured out.

Going with 33" tires and +1 offset wheels, this will be the least geometry change moving to a slightly larger tire on the stock 2014 JK.

If considering a 2" lift and 35" tire, +1 or -12 offset is going to work. Wider is not always better(?), so +1 offset is a good option still (it's still going to be wider than stock), and so it's pretty much up to personal choice.

If you go larger than 35" you'd want more negative offset (less backspacing), and for that matter probably 17x10 (not 18x9) beadlock wheels since it'll be purpose built for off-road.

18x9 +1 offset wheels for 33" seems perfect.

Thanks for listening, feel free to chime in on my thinking. I love good feedback about Jeeps!

Happy Black Friday!

I run the 18" beasts with 35's for street...18x9 -12bs is fine....you'll actually need that if you lift it so the sway links in the rear won't rub on your wheels....enjoy the wheels.....luv mine...

Got it, so if 35's are the goal, need -12 for sway link clearance. 33" and +1 is OK.

Seems like I'd be limiting myself with +1's. Ugh, not picking them up today!

I decided a lift is not in the plan, so sticking with 33".

+1 Offset seems appropriate for 33".

Agree?
