They will stick outside the fender about 2.5" or so and with no leveling kit they will rub like u wouldn't believe. I have -12 offset with 1.5" leveling kit and 33" tires and it rubbed a little bit until I pulled the inner fender back a bit. Stock offset is +44 and u could run 35's on a stock offset with no leveling but with a big offset it puts it closer to the fender. If u get those rims I suggest a 2.5" leveling kit. Let me know if ya have any other questions

going to need a positve offset and i think the diesels are 10inches wide. so if you arent going to lift anytime soon or level...better pick a different wheel or smaller diameter tire. I just put a 4.5 inch icon on my truck last weekend and finally mounted my 35s. i have a 9 inch wide wheel with a -12 offset and i wouldnt want to be any wider or taller to keep functional without trimming. ALSO have a 2009 f250

Without knowing the rim width, it's impossible to tell EXACTLY how far they will stick out. If it's 10" then it will have a 4.6" deep backspace. If it's 8" then it will have a 3.5" deep backspacing. As close as anyone can guess, it will stick out 2.5-3.5 inches. (05s and up need 6~6.5" of backspace).

This is EXACTLY why I HATE offset as a wheel measure. Two different width rims with the same offset ET will have a different backspacing. A 4.5" backspace is the same whether the rim is 8" or 15" wide. Play with rim specs on the link below to see what I mean.

That's only half a question. The othe half would've included what year your truck is. Axle width changed in 05 changing proper backspacing numbers.

My phone app doesn't show signatures. Damn phone.

Using the link I posted above, input your numbers, 05 & ^ use 6~6.5 backspace, if that wheel has a 4.5 backspace then it will stick out 2~2.5".

Hopefully this helps.

for street use you should be fine, might rub on bumps and turning but for the most part you will be ok. If you ever go off road then you will need a smaller offset or wheel. A 10" wheel is big for these trucks without a bigger lift. A 9" wheel is perfect for these truck even with a - offset.
