what offset are you lifted guys running with leafs

2004 F250 9" lift leaf spring. I have 20x11 MKW m19's. They are 5.04 BS and -24 offset. Used to have 37x12.50 with no rubbing. Lifted it a little bigger and put on some bald 38x13.50 for the time being and they rubbed springs at full lock. I got a killer deal on 38.5x14.50's that I got and have now and it looks great they just rub and am trying to find wheels that would fix this issue. Wondering what people are running in either 20x10 or 20x12. Looks like I would need a full inch of back spacing to correct my problem with 2" wider tires (1" on each side) and all I can fine is 4" bs on 20x10 and 4.5" bs on 20x12. thanks for any input I know there are guys running big tires with no rubbing

You need to keep less then 4" of BSing with the 13.5" wide tires. The 14.5" wide tires will need 3.5" or less BSing to stay out of the leafs.

4" back spacing should be good with the 14.50 tires because the tire is 2" wider so thats an inch sticking out on each side of the wheel right? Anyone know of any good looking wheels in 20x10 with 4" BS black or chrome?

While I won't say that you're wrong, I ran 14.50s on 10" wheels with a 4.5 backspace. They only rubbed near full lock, so I didn't sweat it too much. In fact, I'd run those 365s again if I could find a set.
