Default Bilstein and Wheel Help!

I plan on leveling my baby with a set of 5100's and throwing some new wheels and tires on it in the near future. I was just curious if anyone knew if 20x10 with a -24 offset would work? If so, would I be able to 35-13.50 tires or am I just getting to greedy? The wheels I want are offered as follows:
20x10 -24 4.5" backspace
20x10 -12 5"
20x9 -12 4.5"
20x9 0 5"

Any help is appreciated. This is my first vehicle worth customizing, and I'd like to do it right.

Your specs don't look correct. A higher offset number should have less backspace (a -12 should have less backspace than a -24). Might check those numbers.

They are Fuel Hostage wheels. The numbers I listed are the ones they show. The whole offset backspace thing kinda confuses me. Id rather ask for help than get it wrong.

You should be fine with a 20x10 and -24 offset aka 4.5" backspacing. I'm running those same wheels and specs

Ok, thank you Candy08. I see that you're running 37's with nine inches of lift. Do you think 35-12.50's would clear with just the leveling kit?

Former, I think you may be mistaken. A higher offset number should have more backspacing that a lower one. Example....say you have four rims of equal width in various backspacing (-24, -12, +12, +24). The -24 would have the least amount of BS and the +24 would have the most BS.

Gingersport, offset and BS is relatively easy once you get a handle on it. Offset is the measurement in millimeters from the wheel mounting suface (the flat area on the back of the wheel that mates up with your hub) to the center of the wheel's width. BS is the measurement in inches from the same wheel mounting surface to the rear edge of the rim. That being the case, obviously, changing offset has a direct effect on the BS of a rim. Zero offset means the mounting surface is right in the middle of the wheel. Positive offset means the mounting surface is on the front half of the wheel and more wheel is tucking back toward the vehicle than is sticking out. This type of wheel also will have more BS than a zero offset or negative offset wheel. Negative offset means the wheel mounting surface is on the back half of the wheel and more wheel is sticking out from under the fender than tucking under. Negative offset wheels have less BS than zero offset or positive offset wheels. Here is a good visual.



All that being said, I think you should be able to run 35x12.50s with some Bilstein 5100s and you MAY be able to run the 20x10 with -24 offset (I really don't know for certain) but even if you can it is going to stick out from under the fender a lot....atleast a couple of inches more than stock I would say.
