Have settled on 18x9 KMC XD Monsters. I will be running 35x12.50 tires. I am going to be putting a lift on and right now leaning towards the Zone 5 inch vs procomp 6 inch.

What backspace do I need for these rims?

Web has -12, +18 and +35 listed for the 18x9

I plan on installing bushwacker pocket style flares as well. Sorry for the newb question. I have been searching and reading post for hours and still cant decide what I need. I know the +35 will tuck the tires inside the wheel well more but I would like the tires to stick out a little more especially if I add the bushwhacker flares. I just don't know if this will cause rubbing issues.

Thanks.
Mike

Here is place to start. 18 mm offset (9 inch width) with 295/70/18 (11.6'' wide) will be just about flush with BW pocket style fender flares. With 35x12.50, the tires will stick out somewhat shy of 1/2 inch. -12 offset will push it out more than one full inch further out than 18 mm offset set-up.

You do not want 35 offset with Bushwacker fender flares if you don't like tucked in look.

Welcome to the forum, by the way (your first post).
