correct wheel sizes and offsets for 05-07 trucks?

I installed a leveling kit on the 06 f350 and id like to know what the correct wheel offset is for a 18*10 wheel that wont stick out more than an inch or so. I was looking at the pacer 184p-8187. 18*10, -25 offset, 4.5 backspacing, 8x170mm bolt circle, 3400lb load rating and 125.56 is the hub bore diameter.

2016 F550 6.7 9' Dump work truck

2006 F350 6.0 Auto 95k miles. Sct programmer. 5 inch exhaust. Blue spring mod. Suspension mods and 35's.

1997 F350 7.3 Reg cab. Exhaust, coolant filter, front 2.25 PMF Rsk with Superduty Leafs.

Re: correct wheel sizes and offsets for 05-07 trucks?

Stock 18s and 20s are 8" wide with approx 6" of Back Space.

So, even with 6" of Back Space a 18x10 is going to stick out 2" further than the stock wheels.

18x10 with 4.5" Back Space will stick out 3.5" further than stock wheels.

Re: correct wheel sizes and offsets for 05-07 trucks?

If i found wheels that had 6" of backspace, would anything rub (minus the inner fender) w/ the bds leveling kit and 35 12.50's?

Im trying to figure out what size wheels will fit good on the truck, like what are the usual specs that people run with 18x9 and 18x10?

I have 18x9's with 5" of backspacing and my tires stick out just enough to get things messy but not too much at all. Right on the border of what I like. Mine only rubbed on the factory mudflaps

35/12.50s should clear....may just kiss the radius arms if anything.

Depends on the look people are after.

I'd have to see the trucks w/ direct shots on how far the wheels stick out.

I don't have any straight on shots.

Best out of the group of pics from the first truck is this one:

They are 35/12.50 tires.
