    What is the offset for factory wheels on a K-5 ?
    I getting ready to buy new ones and have no clue on what offset to get. I do know I don't want the to stick out past the fenders too far. Also fo 31x10.50's is 15x8 or 15x10 better? Any input? TIA

    Go with 4-4.5 inch backspacing. I would use 15x7s if you rockcrawl at all, if not then go with 15x8s. 15x10s would be too wide for those tires and when you air down it would be really easy to pop the bead.
