    Hi Stormtrooper. I also came across an old post of yours regarding wheel offset and wanted get your opinion on something. I will run 265/70-17 Duratracs and am looking at wheels with +10mm offest (17x8 Ultra Rogue 125). Do you think I might get away with not doing the pinch weld? From what I gather you and others didn't have to do the pinch weld with +25mm, and anything 0mm or - will rub, but haven't seen anyone post on +10mm.

    Hey Stormtrooper I'm finally getting a lift for my Jeep and I've been doing quite some research to make sure I get it right the first time since it's a pretty good chunk of change. I've been debating about what size offset/backspacing and I came across your setup from an older post (which is a really nice setup) and you mentioned that you went with +25 offset with 265/70-17 with no rubbing issues at all and I was wondering if that was with the pinch weld mod or not? Thank you

    I will run 265/70-17 Duratracs for now. Since I already have a set, and do not know if I want to trim the pinch weld just yet. Offset is everything with the XK.
