Need some help! Wheel offset question

I recently installed a 2.5" leveling kit on my 2005 F250 4x4, Im currently running 285/75/17 BFG KM2's and they are looking quite small now. I got another 20k miles on those tires but I want to start my new wheel/tire package now.

I just came back from the Baja 250 this weekend in San Felipe and saw a few race trucks with these method race wheels and I really liked them. of course I will not be running the race wheel but the street version. My question is how will the offset of the wheel below look (click on the link). Im not sure on how the offset works????? Will these wheels be sticking out of the fender well or will they tuck in like stock? Im hoping to run 305/65/18 BFG A/T's, will these tires rub? Its seems like there is plenty of clearance.


If possible can you guys post pictures of your white superduty's with black wheels

Thanks in advance!

An 18x9 with a -12mm offset will stick out, beyond your fenders, about 1 1/4" - 1 1/2". (not counting the tire).

You'd need to test fit a 305/65R18 but they may be ok. This size is about 1/4" shorter than what you have now but a little over 3/4" wider. By pushing the wheels out, you are placing the wheel and tire in a shallower part of your wheel wells.
