305/65/18 bfgs??

Thinking of new rubber and rims for my 01 f350 with leveling kit. leaning toward a 305/65/18 bfg ko on a 18x9 with zero offset and 4.5 backspace. Running a285/75 16 now. Anyone running a 305 how much they bulge on a 9" rim. Didn't want them hanging out the fenders. Would go with the 285 18's but didnt' want them to look smaller than my 16"s now. Any thoughts

305/65-18's is ideally paired on a 9" wide wheel and will not show excessive bulge.

Check out this write-up we put together on offset and backspace. A 9" wide wheel with 0 offset gives you 5" of backspace.


For your set-up we recommend a 9" wide wheel with a -12mm offset (4.5" BS).
