New wheels

Hey everyone, I need to know what backspacing etc. I need to be looking for when I'm ordering my new wheels.

I've got a 2003 f350 and I'm looking to order a set of chrome plated 18" rims for it. I'm going to be running an LT275/70R18 on them.

It seems when you search for 18" rims for an 03 f350 you don't get many options, so I'm just going to start looking through the offset/backspacing numbers to get something that I like.

I don't want the tires sticking out of the fenders either.

Ok...found some wheels that I like. They are chrome finish in an 18x9 with 4.5" backspacing -11 offset.

Eagle Alloy Series 197



Gonna wrap them in LT275/70R18 Michelin LTX AT/2 (we get lots of these as take-offs at work off the new 2011's)

Now I just gotta order my leveling kit and I'm all set! Gonna go with the Rough Country drop bracket leveling kit.
