rim question

Looking to swap out tires and rims on my 11 F-350, I want to run 35X12.5/18w/ Toyo AT II. I really like the KMC Hoss 795 machine black wheels but I can only find them with a -12 (4.53 backspace or a +18 (5.75 back space). I will be installing a Carli leveling kit to help with the clearance. From what I'm told a 5 or 5.5 backspace wheel would be the best for the truck but very few rim makers sell a 5.5 backspacing with the rating for a 1 ton single rear wheel.

Got two questions
1. What backspacings are you running with your 2011-2013 trucks.

2. What is the stock backspacing for the 2011 F-350 stock 18" Aluminum rims?

Thanks
Scott

The stock offset is +40 on 05+ super dutys. Those wheels with a +18 offset would be perfect!

the -12 would clear the inside portion of the wheel, but they would be sticking out so far you will have clearence issues on the outside of the tire. The tire would contact the front bumper and fenders.

if you want to see some of the math behind all of it, I just answered a similar question here 20x9 wheels and 35's on stock truck

Send me a msg if you have any ?'s

Use the information you have and try this on for size... It helped me make a wheel/tire decision that's for sure and was dead on.

The AT II's are a great tire, and I like the look, but the added height and leveling kit really screwed up my towing ability for my gooseneck horse trailer. I have to go back to stock, so the wheels and tires are for sale...
Where do you live? Just saw your plate, too much coin to have shipped to SoCal.
