Tire/rim fitment question

I'm about to order a set of tires and rims. Wanting a set of Eagle 197 18x9 in black. They have 4.5" backspacing and -11mm offset. Tires are Nitto Terra Grapplers size LT295/70R18.

Will I have any fitment issues with this combo? Truck has been leveled already. I'm not too educated on backspacing and offset, so I was wondering if what I picked will work ok.

Re: Tire/rim fitment question

4.5" backspace is optimal for leaf spring trucks. Don't worry about the offset unless you need it to calculate backspacing. Your set up should fine.

Great! I was hoping that set up would work fine.

Trying to find someone that offers a package deal with what I picked now. I'd rather do that instead of order rims from one place and tires from another.

Got it all ordered yesterday. Should have everything in about a week. Now comes the hard part of waiting on the brown man to deliver it all!
