Wheel offset and backspace help??
Ok I have been reading about this all night and can't get a definative answer. I'm looking at wheel and tire size for a 97 F250 with a 4.5 RSK lift.
I'm thinking 35x12.5 tires would fit best. Now the wheels are a different story. I would like to stay in the 17" wheel diameter but options are limited. If I go 18s they price starts to jump quite a bit on tires and wheels... So maybe 16s but worry about the look. I was thinking about going with MT Classic with bead locks to keep a somewhat era correct look with a modern feel. They have them in 17x9 with and offset of "0" I would like them to sit about an inch or 2 past the wheel well. Now they also offer a 16x10 with a -12 offset so that should push the wheel out a little more. Any thoughts?
Also what kind of backspace do I need on this truck. I really never worried about this On past builds so I'm a little lost?
Thanks for the help guys and sorry for the new guy question.
