Ultra Mako or Eagle 064

I've been searching the forum, but haven't found a definite answer...I have a 2005 F250 4WD, with the stock 17s on stock suspension. I want to upgrade to a 20 inch wheel and tire. I like the Ultra Mako's, Eagle 064s, and the Mazzi Hulks. I have heard of a lot of problems wth the Mazzi's pitting, so I've eliminated that one. I was wondering what size wheel and tire I should get(wheel width, offset,backspacing, etc.) I want to keep the suspension stock(if possible), and I don't want the wheels to stick out of the fenders. Sorry for the wordy thread! Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

to keep the wheels in your need a + offset like a +18 or so. The factory on 05 and up is a +40 offset. A 20x9 with a + offset should work great for you. Also ultra wheels are hub centric wheels, I don't think eagles are.

Thanks guys - Looks like the 20x10 064s are -21 offset. And the 20x9 Mako's are +35 offset. Assuming the correct lug pattern - with others, the backspacing is completely different! This is friggin confusing...

Stock tire size is 275/65-20. Will the 305/55-20s still fit without lifting? Looks like they are 33s.

275/65/20 is 34". If they rub it will be because of width not height.

Looks like Mako's with 275s might be the ticket. Have you worked with any of the forum vendors that you would recommend?

So the wheel place said the chrome Ultra Makos are discontinued, and the AE 064s won't fit without a lift due to the offset(doesn't make sense to me...) This is getting frustrating.

i wouldnt want a 275 on a 9"wide wheel. a 305 looks really nice on a 9 inch wide wheel. And i thought that the stocker tires were only 33's not 34's....i dont know for sure on that one. mine are 33"stockers. with the positive offset id do the wider 33 isntead of a 275. A 305 on a 9" rim sits almost level with the rim....just a little balloon., the other will almost look stretched on the side wall. Its whatever you like though
