Lift kit and wheels offset/back spacing ?'s
I have an 06' F250 with factory 20" wheels. I want to do a lift kit. I first just wanted a leveling kit but I want to do 20" wheels with 35X12.50 tires and I don't think a leveling kit will do the trick. So I think a 4" lift is in the future. Is the DR 4.5" lift kit $800 better than a Superlift 4" kit. I noticed Superlift offers a Bilstein shock upgrade which I would do, so is the DR really that much better?
Also, what backspacing and offset will work with the tire size 35X12.50 and a 4" lift? I have found some wheels that are 20X9 with a +14 offset and 5 5/8 backspacing. Would that be better that a wheel with 0 or -1 offset and 4 1/2 or 4 5/8 backspacing?
Thanks for your input
