2006 F350 Wheel/Tire selection question

Hi all!... I'm new to the site and new to diesels. I just picked up my first one yesterday which I'm pretty excited about.

I need to get new tires and want new wheels. The truck is a 2006 F350 FX4 crew at stock height. I would like to get 20 x 8.5 KMC Rockstars with 275/65/20 BFGoodrich T/A KO's. My question to you is will this setup fit? The new wheels I want have a +10 offset and by the looks of it, it will be close. The image below is of what is on there now which is 285/65/18 (roughly 32" w/ worn tread and the new BFG's are right around 34"). Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! -Jim

It looks like you might have to level it to fit them, otherwise you'll be scrubbing every time you make a turn or hit a bump. BTW, the KMC's will look good on the truck.

The 275/65/20's will fit fine. That's the stock tire size for the Harley Davidson F250, but the factory rim is 8". I would be leery of the +10 offset. 0 to -10 should do ok.

Wheel offset is critical. The factory 20s come with 275/65s on them. I just went from the factory Goodyears to Toyo MTs in the same stated size (275/65) yet the Toyos are almost 2" taller.
