:ditto: Personally I think it is too much of a postive offset. With 10's of lift and such a positive offset it would look like the truck would tip over. I would get a minimum of 5" BS. Also you will rub on your control arms with that offset with a 14" wide tire. JMO

Stockers are 6.25 BS. I always have been told that between 5.5 and 6 is where you want to be but since you going so big I am not sure how much BS you need what does the manufacture recommend, I mean they have test product so they should know what works best.

i personally think it will look goofy with that much lift with wheels tucked way in like that. like SkinInc69's said, it will look tall and skinny like it is going to tip over. and i think you will rub your control arms for sure.

I am currently running a 4.5" lift with Toyo 37x13.50-17 M/Ts on 17x10 Helos with a +10 offset (5 7/8 backspacing) and I don't rub at all. This is the best pic I have at work, the rears are about 2" past the edge of the fender. I don't off-road the truck, so I don't get too much articulation which would definitely add to the clearance issues!

I had stock wheels(6.25" bs) for a while on my old truck and the 37's rubbed the control arms. With as wide and tall as your tires are going to be, you should run more like 4.5-5" backspace. This pic is after one day of driving and one day before I wore the powdercoat off of the control arm:
