How to determine offset needed

I have a 2004 f250 with a 2.5" leveling kit. I currently am running 305/70/16 on stock rims and have clearance still. I want to run 18x9s with 35s. How do I determine what offset I need?

Shoot for a -6 to a -10mm on a 9" wide wheel. Some modifications will probably be needed.

With a 4" lift shoot for a 9" wide wheel with a -12mm offset. If you go with a slightly shorter tire you could run a 10" wide wheel with a -25mm offset (without rubbing).

I'm putting a 6" lift and I plan on getting 22x9.5 with 37s. What offset would be best? I'm a retard when it comes to tires and wheels. Lol

Most 22x9.5" wide wheels are going to have a -12mm offset (4.75" BS).

What year and model truck for you have?
