So I have been searching (for hours and have kept my title as specific as possible) but now reaching out for opinions.
Ive been looking at an alloy rim that is 16 x 8J with 5mm +ve offset.
Given that standard alloys are abour 33 mm offset, calculators show that with this new wheel:
Inner clearance would be 15mm more
Outer would extend an extra 41mm
Is this extension considered excessive, given that some are running spacers?
And, do you think I could run 265 x 75's with standard ride height on a 90?
I actually like the standard ride height and springs

I run stock Freestyles with 50mm spacers and 32.00 x 11.50-16 tires (Super Swamper TSL-SX).

No rubbing at full lock with the spacers. Lots of rub without the spacers. No other problems that I can observe after some wheeling (rock crawling).

I don't anticipate any issues with your setup as your describe.
