My car is in excellent condition. New KYB stock size struts all around.
Eyeballing the Methods...waaay more wheel than I need, for sure. But they’re about the only aftermarket wheel I like.
My extent of off-roading will be Az fire roads that are pretty easy to handle.

I see the Method has a +15mm offset. Does that mean it’ll sit 15mm farther out?
And will 225/65/15 clear ok?

Spoke with Method, they said I need the MR502 VT-SPEC. Sounds like the wheel would sit about an inch further out.

Sounds like the wheels will rub the fender lips, even when using stock tire size.

Thoughts?

Don't know anything about Method tires, but I swapped my OB 15" rim/tire combo, with some 2005 OB XT 17x7 rim/tire and they work great, no rubbing, unless I am crawling over baby head size rocks

Got them mounted the other day.
Went with 15x7 Method wheels, Yokohama Geolandar 205/70/15.
Look great, work great. Looks pretty good too.
