I am installing a 2.25 level and new wheels and tires. I have chosen the wheel but i'm unsure of the size (mainly because the offsets). I am looking at a 18x9 with either 18 or -12 offset, a 17x9 with a -12 offset, or a 17x8.5 with 0 offset. either a 285/70r17 tire or 285/65r18 tire. So my question is will any of these work without rubbing? I would prefer the 17x9 but I'm not sure the -12 offset will have clearance. So any input would be appreciated.

17X9 with *12 offset and 285/70R17's are going to rub when turning especially in reverse due to the weight transfer >>> a small amount of trimming may take care of it >>> I run 265/70R17's on 17X9's & - 12mm offset with not much rub

vdub your truck looks good! Thanks for the help. I've decided to go with the 18x9 with 18 offset and 285/65-18 tire. Method Standards for the wheels just gotta narrow down the tire choices now.
