Most people are getting the aftermarket wheels to be able to fit the aftermarket upper arms. You need the offset to fit the larger heim on the a-arms."I've asked this question on a couple other raptor forums, and am tired of the silly answers. Can anyone explain to me why most of the aftermarket wheels for raptors/F-150's are 0 offset? This adds almost 2.5"inches of track width. "
I have the same question...when ordering my Gen II I was going with the stock wheels and then replace them with one of several aftermarket wheels, but after seeing the offsets sticking the wheels out past the fenders and not finding a stock off set aftermarket I then decided to get the BL wheels...The closest wheel I could find to stock specs were the ICON's...
I know that but for many of us who aren't going that direction the offset creates more problems then it fixes...like rubbing....too bad because I really like the Methods...Most people are getting the aftermarket wheels to be able to fit the aftermarket upper arms.

Hey Nimrod, is that with your Gen II or Gen I? I will be putting the Methods on this week and plan to see where they rub if they rub before I start cutting or bending things on my truck!If you get 17’s the Methods are really close to the stock offset. Like an 1/8”
My method 17’s with 37” BFG’s have had zero rubbing, not at full lock, not crawling over stuff in Moab and not on the fast stuff down in Baja. To run the 37’s I have Geiser progressive springs upfront and Deaver plus 2” in the back. Zero rubbing with this setup.
The ford raptorback space is 0x5Huh? Stock offset is 34mm. Methods are 0mm.
34mm X .039" = 1.326 inches
Am I missing something here?
