Default Need help with selecting backspacing/offset 18x9's

I am looking to get Fuel Pump PVD 18x9 wheels with 33x12.50 Toyo MT's.

They are available in two sizes and not sure which I need/would like:

1- 5.00 Backspacing, 0mm Offset
2- 5.75 Backspacing, 20mm Offset

http://www.fueloffroad.com/specs.cfm?id=5673&name=D528

I have a 2007 Ford F150 Super Crew 2WD with a 2.5'' front end leveling kit.

would like to the tires to stick out maybe an inch or two out of the wells and give it a nice stance but nothing too crazy.

Help!! Thanks!

If you're wanting them to stick out of the wheel wells, go with the 5" backspacing.

Thanks... Any idea how far they would stick out with 5'' vs. 5.75'' backspacing?

im not that familiar with the width and offset of the stock wheels on the pre-2009s but if you have that info we can calculate the difference pretty quick.

I believe my stock tires are 17x7.5 with 5.5 backspacing.

So is my math correct... the 18x9 w/5" backspacing will stick out of the wheel wells 2" and the 5.75" backspaced wheels will stick out 1.25"?

Alright if that's the case then you are correct.

I went with a 5" backspace and 0 offset and I Love it. I had to do some trimming but well worth it. (I only have a 2" level on the front). There are a couple of pics of my setup in this thread.
