Question on new wheels

I am looking at getting some new wheels for my 04 CC F350.

the rims I am looking at have two different options...

+0mm offset, 5.0 inch backspace

or

+20mm offset, 5.75 inch backspace.

My truck has the leaf springs and I am not sure which rim size to get.

I am looking at putting 35x12.5 tires and a 4 inch lift on the truck.

Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks

04 F350 CC shortbed, Swamps hot FICM, air raid

Re: Question on new wheels

Re: Question on new wheels

I'm running 20x10 5" backspace on my 04 X, 305/60/20 tires. I don't like the tires sticking out of the fenders too much, so this combo is perfect for me. I've never heard/felt them rub the springs.
