Hi all,
I have a 2018 jeep JLU rubicon with the Mopar lift and adjustable front and rear track bars which centered the axles. Also used front spring corrector pads to remove bowing of springs.
I’m looking to install 37” General Grabber mud tires (D rated) onto Fuel Shok wheels. These are the two I’m torn between:

fuel Shok 17”x9” with a +1mm offset

or

fuel Shok 18”x9” with a +20mm offset.

does anyone have this set up (even if different wheel type with same specs) that can tell me what they like or don’t like about either. I’m trying to keep the tire tread from sticking out more than an inch or inch and a half as tires beyond the fenders are illegal in NH. I also prefer the look when tires just slightly protrude. I’m thinking the 18” rim might lookmore balanced in sized with a37” tire on it but haven’t been able to find a ton of pics. If you have any pics that show An angle looking down the side to see how far tires poke I’d love to see them. I do off road but not bouncing over boulders and would like to avoid rub which is why I am uncertain how +20 would look. I need to hear what people sporting my lift and tire size have to say about rims I’m looking at. Thanks all!

Just came across this post after researching Fuel Shok wheels, so forgive the timing...did you end up getting Shoks? Which size? I am in the same boat, I don't like much poke and can't have much poke in MA. Looking at 17" bronze Shoks and wondering if the +1 will be tight enough. 18s look great but tire selection seems very limited.

Sorry just saw this. I wish they’d send a notification. I did get the fuel shocks with +1mm offset

Thanks for posting! That stance looks perfect to me. I was planning to order the Shoks in bronze (+1) and 37x12.5 tires for my soon to be delivered Sting Gray 392, but the installer isn't sure they will fit without rubbing (on a stock suspension) and suggests the -12 offset. I think I might need to wait and add some other suspension adjustments to accommodate the +1...looks great!
