Just ordered fuel offroads. Quick question

Just ordered fuel offroads 22x9.5" -18 4.5" backspacing. Gonna do a 325 50 22 trail grappler. I was going to get the 5" back spacing and -6 offset but they didn't have it in stock. I have a leveling kit on the truck now. Are the tires going to stick out too much?. Guy told me that it would only be .5" more than the 5" back space and -6 offset. Tell me I did the right thing! Did I just kill my chances of running 37s on a icon 4.5?

Mystic u should be all good with that offset. They will stick out .5" more then the 5" backspace. Ive got 5"backspace on my truck. And the fit is great. 0 rubbing and they are only about 1 1/2" outside my fenders. But with the bushwhackers I just installed. They are pretty well covered. If you want I could snap pics

Thanks for the reassurance Albertastroker. I do want them to poke out some and look mean, but not so much that at looks goofy like a Mexican ride. I was also thinking of doing some painted fender flares. If you could post pics that would be great!

Heres some photos. Im really happy i put the flares on. Finishes the look of the truck

Rims are 20x9 XD Mistfits 0 offset 5.00" Backspace and Tires are 37x13.50R20 Toyo MTs







Also this should help clarify offset vs backspace
