Thanks again for the knowledge bomb! The new wheels I’m looking at are an 18mm off set

Not sure what look you are going for but those will defiantly stick out past the fender (about 1 inch) and rub when you turn. One last thing is "scrub radius" +27mm further out, It's hard to explain but will effect the handling, especially if your Telluride is AWD. and it puts additional stress on the front steering and suspension parts.

What made you decide to go after different wheels and what did you choose if you don’t mind sharing?
I have already purchased a set or I would want to talk with you more on buying them for sure. 😁

I’m in vancouver, Canada - have the EX in dark moss, here are my before and after pics! We went with “RTX Envy 18” gloss black” wheels, kept stock eom tires. This thread was hugely helpful for me - thank you all!

Finally got to upgrade my wheels and tires...

2" Eibach Pro Lift Kit
17" KMC Canyon in black/grey, +35 offset
265/65/17 BF Goodrich KO2's
10mm generic spacers in front wheels.

There were some raised letters on the front brake calipers that were digging into the inside of the rims, so the shop I went to had to grind down some metal, then coated the shaved calipers with anti-rust and primer.

Will replace the generic spacers with Eibach Pro Spacers (part# S90-4-15-018) next month, and add same spacers to the rear.

Just wanting to see how it looks with that combination, preferably with AT tires. Thxs.
Check around and see what AT tires are available in that size. I took a quick look and seems like only Nitto and Toyo make something in the size you're looking for.
