Just try it out and post pics for the rest of us
Not even close. The stock wheels are 8 inch wide +56 offset. With 9 inch wide wheels with a +14 offset just the offset change alone is 42 mm which is 1.65 inches then you have 1 inch more wheel width which you divide by 2 so you have 1.65 inches + 0.50 inches = 2.15 inches further they will stick out vs stock. The +20s will stick out 6mm less (0.25") so 1.9 inches for a +20 offset 9 inch wide wheel.

To the OP love the look of your rig but I have one concern why do you have 245/75/17 tires on 17 x 9s? They are really narrow tires for a 9 inch wide wheel (recommended rim width is 6.5"-7.5"). You could have done 265/70/17 tires as they are the same height roughly but an inch wider.

Looks like that's what he was running on his stock wheels, just transferred them over to the new ones to save cash

OP: Great Lookin' Ride!!!

What wheel dimensions did you end up going with?

Re: MHT Fuel BOOST Wheels 17x9

To the OP, what was the offset of the Boosts? I'm looking at doing either the RRO leveling kit or 2.5" lift as well on my 14' GC. With this, looking at either Boosts or Throttle wheels, so guessing you're running the 20MM offset... Sidewall should stick out past the fender about .5" and tread edge about flush. That about right?

Re: MHT Fuel BOOST Wheels 17x9

I like the look of them. I like them even better that you didn't put the center cap on them which makes them look ugly. I wonder if a small center cap could be made to cover hole in center.
