Nitto 35x12.50x17 & Black Rhino Abrahams 17x9.5 (4.5” backspacing with -18mm offset)

I want to post pics for those who are interested in details regarding tire and wheel set up.
I ordered my wheels (listed above) through an off road shop and tires from discount tire.

Tires installed without TPMS. I chose balancing beads as I’ve had good experience with these as opposed to wheel weights. I set the street pressure at 38 psi. Rides nice. No wandering, no bounce. Plenty of clearance (see pics). Front is about 2” from the rock slider and about 2.5” from the bumper. Rear is about 3” from the rock slider.

Wheels: Nothing special or fancy about the wheels. I don’t care for the cheap plastic hub covers. I could not use the stock lugs as the shoulder diamteter is too large to seat into the wheel. The tire shop provided spline lugs which did fit.

Spare: No bracket or adapter needed. The tire sits about 5mm above the bumper. Better clearance everywhere else. I raised the 3rd brake light the 1 notch. Back up camera picks up the week. I’ll be looking into a mod to get the camera out further and tilted down for improved off road use. I may cut the 5th wheel center cap just to give a “finished” look. Undecided on this yet. I did use a silicone tire bumper on the tailgate. The stock wasn’t long enough. I cut off about 1/2” the length for ideal fitment. Tech tip, if you choose the “hollow” tire bumper, use a dowel rod to insert the grommet. It’s much easier that way.

Programmer: I installed the Tazer JL Mini. I love this compared to the Pro-Cal. Yes, it is about 2x as much ($329), but the programming capabilities and ease of use is awesome! Only complaint? Tazer should have swapped the controls on the steering wheel for programming. It would be more intuitive. Nonetheless, easy. I set the TPMS to “NO” and tire ratio at 35. Initially, I set it at the tire size Nitto advertises and it was accurate from 0-30mph. About every 7 mph above 30, it was off another +1 mph. I reset it for 35 and will do another test drive and report back.

37’s look sweet!
However, at full articulation, they will rub. Common problems here in the west and off-roading. 😜

As for the BR wheels, I don’t care for the janky plastic center cap.
I may shave the mounts and lose the plastic center hub.

Yeah I agree the centers are super cheap. I had these off my Gladiator and swaped them off for some Fuel wheels which have nice centers. I'm on the beach alot and don't get alot of articulation so I should be good, but thanks for the heads up.
