20x12 wheels

I have a 2003 f250 crew can short bed with what I believe to be a four inch lift with 35x12.50x18's on it right now. I want to upgrade to 20's and I love the fuel hostage 20x12. I know a lot of people don't like running a 12.50 in tire in a 12 in wide rim but I like the look. I was wondering if I were to get these wheels, would I run into any problems with the wheels scrubbing on the outside of the fender when I turn?

If you're keeping the same offset, and height/width, just going to a 20" Tire, you should be ok. Only difference is going to be less sidewall on the 20's

Right. I was gonna go with a -44 mm offset. I like the deep dish look. It should have the same backspacing but they will sit out wider. I didn't know if the wheels would hit the bumper or fender with them setting out wider.

Dont forget about the width of the new wheels vs your old ones. if the ones you have now are 9 inches wide and the new ones are 12 inches wide you are already sticking out a few inches farther without the offset.....which if i were to guess you have an 18x9 with a -12 offset possibly now......

Ktm 520. Do you have any rubbing issues. Your truck is sweet btw. Love the wide wheel look.

I've got 20x12's w/ 35x12.50's on a 6" lift. I had to trim the lower valence on the bumper but other than that, they don't rub

Oh well dang. I don't really wanna trim anything if I don't have to. Does anyone know the backspacing of the 20x12 hostages with -44 mm offset?
