06 F250 2 1/2 "lift Wheels and Tire HELP!!!!

Ok so I have a 06 F250 Powerstroke 4x4 .. And im going to put a 2 1/2 "lift on it and need to know, what I should go with for wheels and tires. I want to use a 18x9 or 18x10 wheel but I need to know what backspacing, offset and tires will look good and fit good . I have fender flares, so I want them to stick out some, like 1 1/2 to 2" past stock fenders, so they don't look stupid. I don't want them to rub. I don't want to spend a lot of money on something that's gona end up having to worry about rubbing.. and if it helps I don't need to go offroading. Thanks

Stock 05+ SD has 6.25" backspacing (8" wide wheel and +40 offset)

So to stick centerline of the wheel out 1.5 to 2". You need between a +12 and -12 offset. The smaller (more negative) the offset, the further the wheels stick out.

Planning on running 35x12.5?

You got the best info from BIG, he gave me the same, and after talking to local performance stores. I found that on my 05 to stay as close to inside edge of my fenders as possible I need +18, push them a couple of inches out is -11 in the rim I am looking at.

A 1999 - 2004 application with a 4.5" backspace will push the wheels out 1 3/4". Offset will depend on width. Refer to the attachment for clarification.

If you're going to roll a 12.50 (315), I'd definitely use a 10" wheel.

Remember that when referring to offset, how much a wheel sticks out is DEPENDENT on that wheel's width because offset is measured from the wheel center line. A 10 inch wheel with a +18 or -11 will stick out 1/2" farther than a 9 inch wheel with the same +18 or -11 offset.

OK

I not sure what you are referring to, I was simply stating that BIG had helped me with some info on rims, and when I went to the store all his information was correct. With as little info as the OP listed i.e.: tire or rim size it would be difficult to tell him more. Not sure but I think his truck is a 06 .

Karl is a good guy, I am sure he didn't mean to offend.

The way I took what he posted was he just wanted to clarify the unknowns.
When you (And I) said +18 to have the wheel inside the fenders as much as possible, we should of clarified the wheel width to go with that.

That is why Karl likes to use Backspacing, instead of offset. : Huh Karl?
