20x10 w/ 5" BS?

Doing V and B spring swaps and 2" shackles on the ex. Told I can fit 33's and recommended to run 9-10" wide wheels. Is 10" wheels and a 5.03 so it says for backspace going to work ok? I was told 4.5 but don't know if it needs to be more or less to fit.

305/55-20 nitro Terra's is my plan (33x12.6)

Im running some Helo Maxx8's on my EX IIRC they are 20x10 and I'm running 37x12.50 Yokohamas. I cant remember the exact Backspacing I'll measure it for you this weekend and get back to you. I did have to add a couple spacers(washers) to the front bumper mounts so it wouldn't rub at full lock and going over a bump or steep driveway. I had 37x13.50's before and even with the spacers they rubbed quite badly.

I found the specs for mine and they are a 5" BS with a -12mm offset. Like I said the tires are 37x12.50 and they only rub on full lock going up a steep driveway. And when it does rub it isnt very noticeable.

sick01excursion could you post more pics please, from multiple angles as I would like to see how much poke their is.

I'm about to buy wheels [(20x10) w/ -12 offset, 5" backspace] I plan to run a 35x12.5 r20 with my next set of tires. Currently have a set of 2012 f250 lariat 20" wheels with a 275/65r20 tire.

I forgot to ask what do you rub at full lock (inner fender, leaf spring, bumper)?
