Wheel fitment question

Hello, I just purchased a new 2012 F-350. I love the new truck, but not a big fan of the stock wheels. I found some wheels that I really like, 20x9 Dick Cepek Gun Metal 7's Dick Cepek Tires & Wheels. My question is will these wheels fit on a stock truck? My truck came with 275/65/20 stock. I would like to put 35x12.5x20's on the Dick Cepek wheels, but I am not sure if they will fit. The Dick Cepek wheels have "0" offset and that kinda worries me. I don't want them sticking out way past my fenders. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance!

Stock offset is +40 and tire about 11" wide. 1.5" + 1" = your tire sticking out about 2.5" father out then stock. IMO that is "sticking way past the fender"

You might want to find a wheel with about +20 offset.

You will not have any problems clearing 35's. One guy on here has 37's on a leveled truck, and says he barely rubs at full lock.

That is exactly what I was worrying about. I wonder why they would make a 20x9 inch wheel with a "0" offset. What are the sizes that most guys are running with stock truch height?

You should be able to find wheels in multiple sizes and offsets. Fuel wheels have 1000's of options.

You should find wheels with an offset between +25 and +15 for 9" wide wheels. Alot of people like the wide look. And also different year trucks '04 older I think have a smaller offset. So that's why there is 0 offset choice.
