Aftermarket Wheels and new Tires

I am looking to replace my stock rims and tires on my 05 F-250 CC Lariat FX4. The truck came with the optional 18s and I want to go with 20s this time. My question is about fitment, my truck is stock as far as the suspension goes, but I have ordered a Tuff Country Leveling kit 2.5 inches I think. The XD Addict rims I am considering are 9 inches wide and the tires I like are Nitto Terra Grapplers in LT295/60R20 E126Q Height is 34.45 and width of 12.36 the XD wheels have a -12 offset. Will this set up rub or have clearance problems, and do I need any other items to install the leveling kit? I really don't want to go any taller with the truck as my wife (short], and my parents (handicapped} have trouble getting in now.

I have a very good quote for the setup shipped to me mounted and balanced for under 2200.00. At least I think it's a good price. The best local price I have is a little over 2500.00

Let me know what you think, I am lost when it comes to this and look forward to your response.

Also what's a fair price to ask for the old setup or should I keep them. The rims I would rate a 9 with all the center caps. and the factory Continental have 5-6 32s left on them.

As far as fitment, the stock wheels are 8" wide with a +40 offset. So going to a -12 9" wide, you are putting those wheels out almost 3" further then stock! Better have some fender flares.

You should be looking for a 9" wide wheel with an offset between +24 and +12.

That's what I was afraid of. I just have the stock Lariat flairs on the truck. So I will need to find other wheels as I really don't want them sticking out.

Any other opinions ??

The tires you have selected are 2nd to none. I Love my LT295/70R18 terra grapplers. They are much stronger then the oh so popular 35x12.5R!

I would pay $300 more for the local shop if this included some kind of warrenty/free flat repair/ ect. Over buying them online.

IDK what your old wheels/tires are worth.

Koda there is a huge difference between your truck ('04) and the OP's truck ('05).

I understand that Koda22 truck has the leaf spring set up and I am on coils, but did they really change the setback to that extreme of difference? As I stated before I really am lost when it comes to this area, and I need assistance before I make a bad mistake!!! Anyone else have a thought?

Your '05 has a wider track width which requires a different offset.

'03 7.3 - Stock!

I run the same wheel only 17" on a +18 offset. Tire sticks out about 1.5 - 2" or so. Tires are Nitto Terra Grapplers 295-70-17.

the axles on 05 and up are 4 inches wider than 04 and older. this required the offset change from a 8 inch wide wheel with a 0 offset to an 8 inch wheel with a plus 40 offset.
