Offset for rims on F250

I am getting a new set of tires and rims on my 2006 F250. What offset do I go with? I am putting a DRacing 4.5" lift or a Fabtech 6" lift and putting 20X10 Jesse James Lawless 8 with Toyo Mt 35X12.5X20s tires. I just need to find out what offset people are running.
Thanks
Luke

I believe the backspacing you will need is around 5.5" or 6"

I got Weld 18x8.5 with 325/65 ATZs with 4.5" backspacing and 0mm offset with no issues running the DR 4.5" kit.

Are you asking about OFFSET or BACKSPACING?

I think that 4.5" backspacing would be the way to go. But it depends if you want your tires to be flush with your fender or if you want them to stick out a couple inches. I prefer it to stick out a few inches myself.

I just ordered the fabtech 8" 4 link lift for my truck and plan on going with 4.5" backspacing.

NFA,
What size lift and tires are you running?

7" DR with 4 link. 37 x 13.5 x 20 Toyo MT's. When I say they rub, they rub. I will be replacing my fender flair when the new wheels arive. The bottom six inches is ripped all to hell. It also rubs on the black plastic, but that can easily be pulled back. I use my truck offroad quite a bit, so the constant noise is driving me nuts...also embarassing when clients or friends are in there and you get the big loud fart sound!

Now, the only time it does rub is turning and going over a bump, in a driveway, or anything that causes the suspention to flex.

One more thing, you are only talking about an inch per wheel for a total of two inches. With that much lift and tire, whether it be a 4" or 8" lift with what ever size tire, you will not notice a difference. I myself would rather have the convience of using my truck and not have to worry about the tires rubbing.

NFA,

So do you think I will have a problem with the following set-up?

I ordered the Fabtech 8" 4 link and I will be ordering my wheels (thinking of a 20x10 with 4.75 bs.) on Monday. I'm also gonna be running 37x13.5 20's.

I really want the tires to stick out 3 or 4 inches because I personally don't like the tucked in look. If I can't get a 20x10 wheel I really like with the right bs, I might go to a 20x12 that I don't like as much. It's just a really hard decision for me right now. It's driving me crazy!

Thanx
Ikaika
