Will this work?

Okay guys the I have a 2011 with the 20x8 +40 offset rim package. I wanted to put on 35x12.5 on 20x9 0offset XD misfits. Now this will bring me closer to the hub and thus the control arm.

My buddy runs some incubus 18x9 with a +18 offset and has no rubbing is approx 1-1.5" from rubbing the control arms. Now If I ran those wheels (mifits) and ran a .5" wheel spacers technically it wouldn't rub?

You can't use 1/2" spacers studs are to short.

Well lets say a 1.00" inch spacer in this case then.

NO, min spacer would need to be 1.25" Hub to wheel centric. we have them. You will also have to cut off the excess wheel studs using a spacer under 2"

The more I learn thanks Cary, just going to level it and not worry about spacers!

That still may not stop the rubbing...on stock but since the new rims, 20x9 0offset XD misfits are 4.5" BS where as the stock Fords are 6" BS the rim will move out 1.5" from the radius arms.

remember offset NEVER matters its BS that is important.

Yep my bad..here is a chart, center of wheel is from the inside face so...the rim will stick out 1" farther from the inside which will help the rubbing on the arms.

So less backspacing will increase the distance from the mounting flange on the hub to the inside lip of the wheel correct? Then technically a negative outset would put the rim further out to clear the a arms
