Rim sizing help!

From everything I've been able to look up and read here on the forum and some various Google searches and pictures on back spacing, offset and rim width. I think that a 10x16 inch rim with 4.5 inch backspacing and a -25mm offset should fit on my 2003 350 with a 2.5 inch level and 285 r75 16 right? Hopefully I just want to make sure before I go head and buy them!

That's what I ran on my truck before I lifted it. My truck had 16x8s when I got it and I got mucho bettero contact/wear putting those 285s on a 10" wheel.

285 is a little to small of a tire for a 10" wide wheel. I would look a an 8" wide wheel for a 285 or go to a 315 for a 10" wide wheel. Unless you like the look of wide rim on narrow tire then stay with a 285 on a 10 wide. Other then that those are the correct wheel specs for your year truck

I liked the 285s on a 10 because I could run 50 psi and not ride on the center 5 inches of tread. Running 285s on an 8 inch rim requires less psi, unless of course you like your centers bald and your shoulders treaded.
