Question Need help with new rims on my '04

Ok Im looking to get some new rims for my 04 F250 and the info is getting me all turn around. I have been told that 05-up rims will not fit on my truck without spacers. I am possibly looking at some rims forsale here local and they are aftermarket rims off an 05. Just need a little guidance on what I need to look for as far as backspacing and offset numbers.

With an '04 you want 4.5 inches of backspace. And BTW, offset and backspace are directly related. 4.5" backspace on a 10" wide wheel is -25mm (or 24, can't remember) offset, and on a 9" wide wheel it is -12mm offset.
