Wheel offset -25???

Looking at DC-1 BM, 16x10, 8-170. Offset is -25.

What does -25 offset mean?

Negative means how far they stick out, -25 usually will not fit on a stock truck, -11 or -12 is usually about the most offset you can have

me and my simple mind are still confused.

Truck is an '03 6.0 with 2.5 add-a-leafs all around.

The higher the offset in negative numbers the more the tire is pushed out past the fenders, the higher positive number the more the tire is tucked in behind the fender well, high negative numbers push tire and wheel out causing them to rub the fenders when you turn, if you have a 2.5" lift they may work, will prolly be close. I have an 08' with 35" tires on 20" wheels with -25 and a 3" leveling kit, it clears but barley, if i had a say 0 or + (positive) offset i could probably fit 35's on truck without the leveling kit

I am running LT305/70R16E's now on stock Lariat 16x7 rims.
I'm trying to upgrade the tires to LT315/75R16E's and hopefully get rims too (later - tires needed now badly).

I want the DC-1 Black - 16x10.

315 75 16's are 34.6" tall, if you have a true 2.5 extra inches of lift with the leafs then they will probably clear but its probably going to be close

So - if I stick with my 33's (LT305/70R16) - will they fit fine with a 16x10 rim?
