17 or 18" on 07???

I'm debating getting a 18 or 17 to run on my 2007. I ordered a 4.5 lift today but have yet to order wheels or tires . . I plan on running a 35 12.50 tire but have yet to decide on 17's or 18's . . . what back spacing and offset will I need in order to run a 17? I was told I could only run certain 17 because of brake clearance issues I believe?

My vote would be 18s. I'm personally not a fan of the big wheels with rubberband tires, but an 18" looks just right. Plus, you'll find a lot more styles to choose from in 18" vs 17"

My 2 cents,
Mark

17 inch tires are a fair bit cheaper than 18s

Go with the 18's, my 06 came stock with them and I think that it will have just the right look for you especially with the lift.

I love the look of 18s on the superduty, not too big, not too small.
