Default Wheelbase Question???

I'm running the DE Wheels Speedline Plus (SC5M/SC10.2) wheels on my application. If I wanted to shorten the wheel base a little would I run the TLR 22sct wheels?

Wheelbase is the distance from the centerline of the front axle to the rear axle and is not effected by the wheels themselves but can be changed by the shims on the hubs usually.

Right, that is not what I meant. Basically I want to know if my truck will be narrower running a TLR wheel than the SC5M wheel which I believe have the +3mm offset.

can't answer your question, but what you are referring to is the track width, not wheelbase. That may help people understand what your asking.
