offset.

wondering what offset people are using. i have an 08 f350 that will be lifted 4 inch with a 1 inch icon spacer up front, so a total of 5 inches.

want to get some xd monsters 20 inch. and wondering what the offset needs to be. i don't want them to stick out very far from the fender and i think i need/want a 10 inch width because i want to run either 35 or 37 toyo mt's

i had to pull the fender liner back just a hair with a zip tie. Had the zip ties on for a month and cut them off and now its trained to stay back. other than that no trimming and nothing else needed. Im running 1.5" leveling kit with 33.5" tall tires that are 12.6" wide.

they stick out prolly 2 inches in the front. 0 offset will get ya closer to like 1 inch sticking out and +12 will be pretty close to flush. i will see if i can find some 0 offset pics for ya

What would an 20x9 +18 look like? Almost flush when running a 12.50 tire? Would it rub?

If you keep the stock offset and run that big of tire you may rub on sway bar. But if you do close to a zero offset you won't have any problems with rubbing the frame or sway bar. It may just rub the plastic fender like mine did or the plastic valance on bumper but chances are you won't rub at all with an offset like that. The more negative offset you go(sticking out past the fender) the more chance you have of hitting the fender liner or front bumper with big tires.

Yes that would be pretty much even with the fender.
