Default Rough country with 35s

I want to get the rough country 6" lift with 35x12.50x18 by 9. With fuel hostage wheel. What determines how much "back spacing" and "off set" I need? Can someone please help me, this is my first lift and wondering if I get the RCX lift, can I get the 35x12.50x18? Or the 20 inch rim? Will the tire and wheel fit on this lift?

What u puttin the lift on? Backspacing on the wheel is the distance u have between the inside lip of the wheel to where it bolts to the hub. Offset will change as the bs does. Depends on how u like your stance, if u like ur tires to stick more out go for negitive offset

Rough country 6" inch lift says the max tire size to fit is 35x12.50x17 with 9 in wide wheel? I saw a guy with 20x10 wheels? This is so confusing!!! I don't undertand how the 17x9 vs 18x9 or 20x9 makes a difference? I really like the 35x12.50x18-9 tire and wheel and if I could I like the 20x9 as well

35x12.50 is tire size they recommend, on 9 inch wheel with 4.5/5 bs. I don't think U have to follow exactly that rim size, I didn't, I have a 2013 6 inch kit and my wheel specs are 20x10 with -24 offset and 4.6 bs. I don't have any issues. U can get a 9 inch wheel just make sure ur bs is between 4.5-5

So you don't have to buy a tire for back spacing? It all depends on how you install the tire for the back spacing and offset correct? Do you have a pic of our truck? What lift? -24 is how many inches out? I don't want my ride to look like a low rider or something.

Do they make a 19x9 wheel? I like the bigger wheel look but not too big, don't know if I should go for the 18x9 or 20x9
