Ballistic wheel, jester with red ring question

Hey everyone. Im about to pull the trigger on these wheels and can't figure out the specs for what i want..2004 f350 with leveling kit, I would like to get 18's, 17's will work, 305 nittos terra grappler's. I want the wheels to fill out the wheel well and stick out past the fender wells about an inch say? Does anyone have this setup on there rigs? And or does anyone know what wheel width i need/ backspacing i need to achieve this? Thanks

Since you have leafs, you will need 4.5" of backspacing at maximum. Any more than that and you will severely limit your steering ability. I used to run 325/60/R18 with my leveling kit and I LOVED the setup. (18x8, MotoMetal 950's with Mickey Thompson MTZ's)

Yes. 33 inches tall and a bit over 13" wide. I've since gone to a bit narrower tire.

Sure will. Why did you go with a narrower tire? Did the ride stink on the
13 inch?

Nope. I loved the look and the ride of it. My MTZ's started to come apart and after a while, I wanted something that would fit a bit better in the wheel well. I got tired of hitting a puddle and the entire side of my truck getting dirty. The new tires still do it, so when I get my next set of wheels, I am thinking about another half inch of backspacing to put them at 5.5" and hopefully tuck the tires up under the wells.
