Hi all,
I am getting ready to order a set of wheels/tires for my ST and had a question regarding offset. I am looking at Blaque Diamond BD-F18 in 22x9 with 275/40zr22 tires. My question is the stock offset is 37.5 for the 20" wheels with 255 tires. The place I have been speaking with is quoting a 22x9 wheel with +15mm offset. I dont have a lot of experience with wheels. Would the offset be specific to the wheel or should it be closer to the factory 37.5? What would be an ideal offset as I dont want to mess with the factory fitment and ride quality. I did locate a calculator and looks like +35 may be my best bet. Thoughts? Thanks in advance

Have you checked on Tirerack? There are some tire options for 22" tires.
Yes, I looked on there. The wheels are +30 through +38 offset for 22x9 which is another reason I am concerned about the measurement on my quote. It is possible that it is a miskey but wanted some input from folks who know better than I before I answered the quote.

+15 is gonna stick out and when you turn it will rub up front. You need to stay around + 30’s
I’ve been looking also. There’s not a lot of room in the fender well. There’s a member on here that went 24”x10” with 285/30/24” tires. He said no problems with rub

Run that chart with a +15 offset.

Hey guys

I called my buddy just to double check my offset my wheels are 35mm offset 24 by 10 niche for tires I went with a 284/30/24 nitto 420
It looks tight under there but no rubbing. Hopefully that’s still the case when h and r finally releases a spring lol

Yours looks great! Do they stick out a little bit? You got a pic down the side to see offset? Stock is 37.5 offset

24 by 10 niche with 35mm offset
285/30/24 nitto 420s tires

the ride is actually a bit better with the nittos I suspect because they are soft hahaha I will keep you guys posted on how long they last
There wasn’t a lot of options in a 30 profile 988B0A09-E3DA-44DA-97F8-2F0CD8FB5799.jpeg 988B0A09-E3DA-44DA-97F8-2F0CD8FB5799.jpeg BFBF32C8-7A42-4B87-BFE6-B4F850828C63.jpeg

I love those wheels but man the wheel gap is huge with those tires.

Can you post some pics? I’m trying to see what a 22 or 24 x 10.5 looks like. I also would like to see the 20x 10.5 or 11 looks like.

Ford body shop sanded and painted it for me. I looked for a wrap which would have been cheaper but we couldn’t find a blue that was close

My dealer has an on-site body shop. I had the truck for a few months before I had it painted. It cost me roughly 2000.00 US to have the work done. I think they spent quite a few hours sanding down all the small dimples on the flat black panels.
