2" leveling kit

Hello I know its probably has been covered before, but I cant seem to find it in the search. I have a 2006 f350 with a 2" zone leveling kit. I want to run a 35x12.5r20 tire on a 20x9 zero offset or 5" backspace wheel. Does anyone know if this tire and wheel combo will work with just a 2" leveling kit? I don't want any rubbing. The zone instruction said a 35x12.5 tire on a 17x9 rim with a 4.5 backspacing would work.

I believe you should be able to run those since you don't have springs and correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure a 0mm offset of a 9" wide would be 4.5 back spacing not 5

I bought the wheels used and the guy I got them from said that they are 20x9 with a offset of 0 and back spacing of 5". So I am not sure. I check the back of the wheels but didn't see any stampings of offset or back spacing. Thanks for the reply.

You should be fine.....you'd basically just be running the same size tire with a bigger hole in the middle of it for the wheel.

A 0 offset would be 4.5" of backspacing on a 9" wheel. The offset measurement is the measurement from the mounting surface of the wheel to the centerline of the wheel and how far it is from the center. A positive offset means that the mounting surface is forward of the centerline towards the outside of the wheel, a negative offset means the mounting surface is behind the centerline, making a more deep-dished wheel. If the offset is 0 then the mounting surface is dead center, making your backspacing 4.5" on a 9" wide wheel

If you want to know what the measurement is on those wheels take a straight edge and measuring tape with you. Measure the width to make sure that it's 9". Then place the wheel face down and lay your straight edge across the bead surface. Measure the distance from the mounting surface to the straight edge and there's your backspacing.

Thanks guys on all the replys. I will post pics as soon as I get the wheels on. I already have the leveling kit installed and wheels are back from powdercoating and tires are mounted. Just waiting for my brother to paint the center caps. Also ordered my bilstein 5100 series shocks today. Also I will get the specs off my wheels when I get a few extra min as I have been working a lot of hours at work with my father being off work

Got the Zone 2" leveling kit on with the new bilstein 5100 shocks all the way around the truck. Also got the 35x12.5r20 installed yesterday. I do have some tire rubbing on the lower plastic inner fender. What has everyone done with this issue? Just trim the inner fender with a cut off wheel? Also if I can figure out how to upload pictures I will try and get one up.
