Offset question

Need new shoes? This is the place to discuss.

I am looking to get a new set of shoes for my 03 TB ext. I am still new at this so please bare with me.

I currently am looking at the FUEL Vapor series. I would like to get 18x9" but will settle with 17x9" if necessary. Before I order anything I just want to get a little input. I have already ordered a leveling kit, new springs and shocks and plan to order spacers/adapters as soon as I figure out what wheels I am getting and know which spacer/adapter I need. I plan to get 2" or 1.5" spacers, whichever is needed.

My first question is, what size offset do I need on the wheels? I don't want any rubbing, but at the same time I don't want the wheels/tires sticking way out.

Here are the specs for the ones I'm looking at.
Rim Diameter 18 inches
Rim Width 9 inches
Bolt Pattern (Number of Holes) 6
Bolt Pattern (Pitch Circle Diameter) 135 millimeters (and 139.7mm)
Offset 19mm, -13mm, 20mm, 1mm
Backspace 4.5 inches

My phone’s not letting me attach photos for some reason, but if you scroll through my posts you can probably find a pic of my rig. My wheels are fuel anza’s. 17x8.5 with 4.5 in backspacing on 1.5 in adaptors.

Thank you. I ended up going with Fuel Hostage 17x8.5 with 4.5 backspacing and 1.25 spacers. These have been delivered, hopefully will be installed this weekend
