Metal Cloak 3.5 Inch Gamechanger and Method Wheel.

So, Someone told me I was going to rub with this setup... Not sure why. Maybe someone can explain to me?


Wheel I want Method NV : 17 x 8.5 with 0 offset and 4.75 spacing.

While the Method Mesh : 18 x 9 with -12 Offset and 4.5 spacing will not rub.

Is there a huge difference? The mesh is my 2nd choice in wheel, should I just go with that to make my life easier?

Oh and this is my first post ever, I can use all the help I can get!

The wheels will be .25" closer to the control arms and frame vs the wheel with 4.5" back spacing. It will likely rub on the lower control arms when you're turning full lock, but that isn't a big deal. Adjust your driving style and go with the wheels you want.
