How far will my new wheels stick out. Please check my math.

So...compared to my stock wheels which are 17 x 7.5

If I purchase wheels that are 17 x 18, offset -19 , backside 4.5

the 1/2" extra wheel width divided by 2 = 6.25 mm
and the -19mm offset = + 19.0 mm
25.25 mm more that my new wheels will stick out past their stock position from hub center? So...just over an inch? Is that right?

Planning on getting 265/17/70 BF Goodrich All Terrain TA KO rubber.
Is this gonna work? OME HD all around and Rusty's 1/4" coil spacers up front on the way.

Thanks in advance.

My Addicts were -12 and 4.5'' BS and they stuck out almost 2'' when compared to stock. If you are going with -19 and have a lift smaller than a 4'' get ready for some rear fender damage during flex.

Acid,

Thanks for the heads up. I'm planning on ordering the OME HD kit on Tuesday and was thinking ahead about wheels and tires.

Will rolling the lip on the rear fenders and pinch weld mod up front make it work? What about a 17 x 8 / 4.5" BS and 0 offset?

If you can find something along the lines of a AVE Pintler, you shouldn't have any problems, I am not sure what the 4.5'' BS and 0 OS would look like, maybe others can with that size wheel can help you out.
