wheel problem

i have a 2007 access cab....stock ride height....bought a set of new 18x9 XD Monsters with 265/60/18 michelins from a local guy.....i was told the rims were -12mm offset which would be a 4.5" BS.....well i just got around to putting them on my truck and decided to measure them real quick.....found out its actually a 6.38" BS with a +35mm offset.....how screwed am i?

Did they put the truck back the ground, and did you turn the wheel to full lock?

I don't see how it's possible because I have 5.4" bs, 18x9 wheels and I sure don't have 1" to spare between the tire and uca. I'd just keep an eye on it.
