Question Will they work ??? Help

Ok, I have a smokin deal pending on a set of:

Fuel Krank 20x9 8x170 with +20 offset on 5.75" backspacing OR +1 offset with 5" backspacing...

I know these will both work with my 37x12.5x20 Dick Cepek tires on a Carli 4.5" lift BUT please tell me which one is the best bet for no rubbing...

finally started to understand the offset business using that site

Thanks

5" BS would work better

As Cary said, 5" Back Space is the ideal setup. 5.75" BS is a wheel fitment for a 35" on a super-duty or 37" on a Dodge Ram. 5" BS will net you a bit more fender liner trimming but no radius arm rub, 5.5" BS will net you light radius arm rub at full lock (unless you're getting Carli Fabricated arms, then you'll clear).

THANK YOU! Ordered the 1 offset 5" BS Fuel HOSTAGE...I know, I caved to the common rim, but it looks great on every truck I see them on.

Lift install starts Monday...I can barely wait for it all to come together...probably another week of so with flare paint and rims inbound.
