    -12 is 4.5 backspacing on a 9 inch wide wheel. 4.5 backspace seems to fit the best with out trucks/lift. -12, or 4.5 backspace, on xd hoss 18x9 wheels is what i have on my truck, they fit fantastic. +18 on 9 inch wide wheel is 5.5-5.75 backspacing, which, if im not mistaken, puts more wheel and tire under your truck, which would cause you to rub on many items im sure...


    KPT knows his shit, hopefully he will chime in.

    I have 33x12.50x18 and a 6 inch lift. Regardless of the size lift, 4.5 backspacing fits the best. I was going to lift my truck 3 inches before too, and was still going to get the 4.5 backspace.

    I'm not sure that width of tire will fit with a 3 inch lift. When I was going to do my 3 inch lift, I was going to use 285/70/17 which aren't as wide, and was still going to have to trim. I will post some pics here in a bit

    You definitely do NOT want +18, that will never work. I don't know why wheelpro's would recommend that, but you need the -12 offset. And like frostbyte said, you're going to have some trouble getting a 33x12.5x18 to fit without some major trimming. You will definitely have to trim bumper, and probably cab chop.

    Sorry I am late :eek:

    Tell them if the +18 doesn't work then you get the wheels for free. Then see how confident they are.

    Yep, Brett knows his shit too.

    Oh yeah, plenty.....

    Where did you find a 33x12x18? Do you mean a 295/65/18?

    Okay, thats a 32.5 x 11.2 x 18. And yes, you'll still have to trim, and possibly chop your cab mounts.

    Like KPT said, you will have to do some minor to moderate trimming. I have same size tires and wheels with a -12 offset on a 3" lift. You most likely wont have to do a cab mount chop unless you are into some serious off-roading.

    Mind if I ask who you are dealing with? And have you ordered the wheels and tires already? Reason I ask is I noticed you're in Arlington, so if you haven't ordered them yet let me know, I've got Discount Tire connections, especially in Marysville.
