2014 Ford E350 Quigley Wheel Offsets

I am considering putting some black wheels on the new to me 2014 E350 Quigley that I purchased; anyone know what the proper wheel offsets are in order to have the rears (close to) flush out with the bushwackers without adding spacers?
Thanks!

I went with the Mickey Thompson Deegan Pro 2's, 9x18, -12mm offset, 8x170. They have no zero offset offering which is optimal...

Quigley adds a rear 8x165.1 to 8x170 adapter and my 285/65R18 BFG KO2's are right at the edge of the flair.

Here's my post / pics in the tire and wheel gallery:

Lyall,
This is exactly what I needed; thanks! I guess I am the last black EB350

Wow, I am having a tough time finding many wheels in this configuration; anyone have any suggestions?

Lyall,
I just noticed your comment about the 0 offset being the optimal; how do you mean?

I am a bit concerned about putting such a wide wheel on (the -12 offset) as I live in the mountains and do quite a bit of snow driving and feel like a taller and narrower wheel/tire is optimal. That said, I would like to push the rear wheels out to match front/come out to edge of flairs. Would it be a better option for me to just get some spacers for the rear?

Hey Taylor,

I've read a few posts saying zero offset wheels are what Sportsmobile uses. I liked the wheels enough to settle on the -12mm offset. With 285's they fill the Bushwhackers out nicely. Anything wider than 285's will need a zero offset.

I also settled on the 285/65 over 285/70 because they're an inch shorter and I'm pulling a trailer with a 5.4 and 4:10 gears. Lots of time using wheel offset / tire size calculators helped me go with this size over the Quigley added 245/70R17's.

For snow skinnny seems prefered so I'd measure your current rear adapter and see if there's a wider replacement available.

I've always been a fan of pizza cutters (tall & skinny) for the Winter also....
