Ill start by sayin i got a 2007 nnbs silverado 1500, it has a 3" body lift, 2" leveling kit and a 3" rear block. I would really like to get some dale jr cannons but i dont know if they will work with the offset they offer, everywhere i go i get a different answer so hopefully some on here is running these. I was going to get either the
18x9 with 295/70/18 or 17x8.5 with 305/70/17
18's have 0 or -12 offset
17's have -6 or +15
Does anyone know what will work?

I'm no expert, but from what I've read stock offset for your wheels is 5.5". I don't know how the offset of the wheels you're considering compares to the factory backspacing without knowing how wide they are so you can compare apples to apples measurements. Something else I read indicated that you would need 6" of lift to clear that 295 for sure, but maybe even 305 and neither would work with factory offset.
Again, just taking a stab at it from stuff I've read here and a few other places. Can you ask the tire/wheel vendor about fit? Seems like they should have some experience.

in my personal opinion, i'd hold out till i find a rim that was closer to factory offset.
if you have to choose between those two options, then go with the 18's and the -12 offset. i want to say the factory stock offset is like -22 or -32.. something along those lines. (5.5" sounds about right as Devin posted)

thanks guys. Im either gonna get the 17's with -6 or the 18's with 0. I was told that would stick them out about an inch past the fender. i dont want them tucked way in like factory.
