Need a little help with offset

I'm sure this question has already been answered somewhere in these forums but I cant seem to find it. Ive got and 02 F250 and I'm lifting it 6" and looking at putting on 37x13.50" Toyos. I want 18x9 KMC monsters but cant decide between -12 or +18 offset. Ive found a lot of help if I decide to go with 20"wheels but I like the look of a little more tire. I want Aprx 2" give or take of tire sticking out past my fender but still wont rub. Does anybody have any advice on this issue?

+18 offset will scrub on your springs bad. -12 will be your best bet to clear. Regardless you will have to do some minor trimming or bumper spacing. I have -10 offset with 13" wide tires and no rub at full lock. I had to trim the lower bumper bracket a tad and pull back the inner fender near the e-brake.

a 4.5" BS is exactly what you want. Most of those wheels will be a -12 offset. My wheel for reference is a 18 x 9, 4.61" BS and -10 offset and a 13" tires does not rub at full lock. Good Luck with your choice, it is hard.
