I'm wanting to get new wheel to replace the factory 17" 8 hole wheels that came on my 05 f250. I've found one that i really like but don't understand how offset and backspace plays into wheel choice. I need new tires and plan on going with a 35x12.50. So could someone please explain to me what this is and how it works. I don't want to end up buying a wheel that won't work right for my set up.

Thanks

My plans are a leveling kit and run 35's. I don't mind if they stick out a little but not alot. I don't really like the look of fender flares and here in VA. they can be a little picky when getting a inspection sticker.

Thanks
