Wheel backspacing Question

I have 18" (soon to be 4-6 inches higher) lift now on my f350 with 19.5' wide MTs and I hate em! Im gonna do some 20x10s on the 14.00R20 Michelin XZLs and Im not sure what a good backspacing would be. I want them to stick out a bit as I plan to do some fender flares. Any input for some wheel gurus out there? Im looking at some with a -24 backspacing now which from what im reading is 4.5" backspacing, will these work and look good?

On a 2005 and up they will stick out pretty good. On a 2004 and down, not so much.

Granted these aren't the tires you are doing, but they are 14.5 wide on a 16x10 with a -25 offset (4.5" backspace). The important things are there, 14.5 wide on a 10" wheel with 4.5" backspace.

Karl!!! why you gotta beat me to the wheel questions? haha

Here

04- needs 4.5" BS or less. 05+ needs 6.25" BS or less (for stock width tires) So 14" wide will work great on 05+, but you need more negative for 04-.
