Arrow Required wheel backspace for 325/60/18's??

How much backspace will i need to run a 325/60/18 without rubbing on the radius arms? I want to run the least amount of backspace as possible without it rubbing.

I have an 06 f-250.

Your stock 18's have a 6" back space. The 33's won't rub the radius arms with the 6" back space its when the tire gets taller and wider that they rub like 37's.

I just put 325/60-18's on my '06 F-250 with a 2" leveling kit. I have 18X10 with -25mm offset giving me, I think 4.5" backspacing and I rub some at the back of the tire. I trimmed a little bit of the valance and used a heat gun to mold the fender well on the rear and am ok, but if I hit a big bump with the wheels turnedjust right it will hit the metal part of the fender.

If you run an 8 or 9" wheel, you'll probably be ok with a leveling kit. I'm not sure about stock though. Try this for a cheap yet functional leveling kit: eBay Motors: Ford 2005 2008 F250 F350 4WD Leveling Lift kit 2.0 (item 120396712586 end time Apr-23-09 05:54:07 PDT)

I run 325/60R18 Goodyears on my stock height 07 F-350.....never have rubbed anything.

16,000 miles on stock 18x8s
23,000 miles on Weld Renegades 18x8.5 with 5.14" Back Space.


But, my truck came with the snow plow package and 6000lb coils and I've since swapped them out for 7000lb coils (heavy snow plow ) so I may sit a little taller than some other stock trucks.

Well I'm soon to be buying some 325/60/18s and some 18x9 XD Badlands with a 4.5" backspacing. I will be running these wit a 2.5" leveling kit.

DO you think I will rub? I have an '03
