Wheel Advice for 35's (Rig Stolen and stripped)
So, my worst nightmare occurred last month when I walked outside in the morning to find my truck GONE.
It was found a few weeks later on blocks, thank goodness, with only a few parts missing. All in all, could have been much worse. My insurance company is finally sending me a check and I'm going to go ahead and put 325/70/R17 Nitto Terra Grapplers on her. I bought the truck with a 6 inch lift and had wanted to do this tire upgrade for a while.
I don't want to pay to replace the Ford 17x8 rims with the exact same OEM rims. They looked great, but are too expensive and a little narrow to squeeze those 35x13inch tires onto. Instead, I am looking at cheaper aftermarket rims, narrowed down to KMC and Pro Comp.
MY QUESTION IS THIS:
What amount of backspace and what bolt pattern do I need to purchase for my 2006 F-350 Lariat CC LB? I know I have 8 lugs, but I don't know if I need 8x170mm or 8x6.5"..... or something else entirely. Also, I have ZERO idea about backspace. All I know if that my previous tires were way too small for my truck with a 6" lift.
All help or comments are appreciated. I have used this forum as a reference on several projects.
