Rubbing Issues

Will a 305 tire with 20x12 wheels rub on the 2011-12 Superdutys?

12" is to wide 10.5' to 11" max. 9"-10" is best. It all depends on the offset. The 305 with the right offset is good with no rubbing.

All the 20x12 (and x10) wheels I've seen have a huge offset, they will stick way out. With no lift this will cause you a lot of clearance issues.
Also, will 'probably' not work with those tires. I say probably because you don't specify which tire you are looking at, but it's a pretty safe bet they'll have a rim range that's something like 8-10"

You need to be looking at 20x9s with a 5.25 backspacking. A lot of the 20x9s use a 5" backspacing. These are for lifted trucks and will likely cause clearance issues. Those with 5.5" backspacing will work and if they are too tucked under, you can add a .25" spacer.


All this from my last month of research on this very topic, though I'm going with a bigger tire and a Icon 2.5" kit. I'll likely use the Ultra Predator 8

which has a 5 5/8 backspacing and add a .25 spacer so I'll end up with 5.375"

Though the info should be applicable to your use as well.

I have a 2011 Powerstroke with a 3.5" front lift and my 18x9 XD Monsters (4.5" back space) were rubbing on the rear inside. I changed same wheels for the 5.71" back space and no rubbing problems. I am using Nitto Trail Grappler Muds (35 x 12.50 x 18). Offset is normally the problem. Many of the aftermarket wheels only come in 4.5" back space for 9" wide wheels.

I have 305/45/22's on a stock height 2WD 2001 F250. Slight rubbing on the front when the wheel is completely turned, but not too bad. Though I believe my rims are 22x9.5" IIRC.
