    -12 offset is close to 4 inches of backspacing.

    Ok so let me ask you this is 5.01 backspacing just basically a 1/2" more then 4.5" backspacing ?? The lift calls for 4.5" so will 5" work to just stick out 1/2" more ???

    Ok understand that but one his build it says 20"-10" monster xds ... And I can't them wheels with a 4.5" backspacing less he's not telling the truth about the wheel size I do know it's a 20" rim. Reason I'm doing all this is cuz I have the rcd lift and rcd them selves said to me don't matter what wheel size I get just long as I have 4.5" backspacing ... Reason I'm going off HBtacoma cuz I like the stands of it.

    If you want a 10" wide rim with 4.5" backspacing, that would be -25 mm offset.

    A 10" wide rim is pretty wide....what size tires are you planning on running?

    The 18's have a 4.5" backspacing option. That's all I see on their site.

    If you are really set on the 20's, you could use a small wheel spacer to push them out further if they rub.
