Leveled 2010 and wheel offsets

On my Leveled 2010 F350, I want to run a 325/60 R20 tires (seems to be a lot of options for an AT load rated E tire in this size) I have narrowed my wheel choice down to two. One is a 20x9 with 0 offset (5 backspacing) the other is a 20x9 with a +10mm offset (5.39 backspacing). Although I like them both really well...I actually like the looks of the one with the +10 offset a little better. I know that .39 inches is not a lot but it can make the difference.
So my concern is clearance issue (radius arm rub) with the +10mm offset and as tire that is almost 13 inches wide.
Anyone running this size tire, on a 20x9 with an offset of +10mm or more, please chime in here.

Your are right to be concerned with the width of the tire and the offset. A 325/60R20 is a lot of tire to stuff under your truck with just a leveling kit. Based on the numbers in my guide either one will probably require some modifications. Tires are like shoes, some run larger than others so when you push the limits, like you want to do, you'd be best off test fitting it.

To give you a little idea, Here's a 2010 F250 with a 20x8.5 -6mm offset and 295/65R20's. The truck is leveled and these rub ever so slightly...




If you tow or load your truck up quite a bit you may want to consider the 295/65R20 size. 10 ply rated tires in this size have a max pressure of 80psi. 10ply tires in the 325 size only have a max pressure of 65psi. Keeping a tire with an 80psi max pressure will help keep your trucks handling, under load, steady.



Here's a list of Discount Tire locations in your area, you may want to call them up and see if they can help you with some test fits.

Leveled 2010 and wheel offsets

Below is my 2010 leveled f350 with 35x12.50R20 on a 20x9 with 0 offset. The tire size nearly identical, but the offset of +10 might rub. My setup rubs just slightly at full lock.

Are you rubbing on the radius arms or fender liners?

Would you mind posting a picture of your truck from the side? I really like these wheels but am interested to see how much you can see through the 20's when on the truck and how it looks with silver. My truck is silver and you are the first I have found with this setup....the wheel preview tools on the internet are not good.

Thanks
