I just ordered some 18x9 wheels and 35/12.5 tires. The wheels have 5" backspace and they said they will stick out about 2"

2003 6.0 F350 dually on high cholesterol fuel (WVO)
2000 7.3 Excursion also on a high cholesterol fuel

around -20 offset would look good

4.5" backspace is perfect!

On a 9" wide rim, it would equal -12mm offset.

On a 10" wide rim, it would equal -25mm offset.

I have a 2003, so it's no different suspension than yours

But yes, mine sticks out, but it's pretty. I am running some fat tires also, 33x13.00x18s.
