Help me decide 18 or 20 inch wheels on leveled F350

I've been doing some reading through old threads and looking at as many pics as I can and I still can't decide if I want to buy 18" or 20" wheels for my 3" leveled 350. I'd like to go with a 12" wide Fuel Hostage and I'm planning on going with a 33"-35" tire as I prefer a bit of a gap between tire and fender well. I've never really been a fan of tires looking like they're stuffed into the fender well, so if anyone has pics of either, I'd appreciate it.

Here's a pic of what I'm after. My old 350 lifted 9" with 15x14 wheels and 40x18 tires. I want this look, scaled down.

Personally I'd go with 20s on 35s that's what I have right now. Next I'd like to go to 22/37 but I have a 6 inch lift

If I could lift my truck, I'd do 20" no doubt. However, I plan on plowing in the winter for some extra cash and I don't want to mess with the plow angle too much. I'm just worried that if I go with 20"s now they'll look "stuffed" and I'm not a fan of that look.

If that's the look you want 18's are a no brainer, the closet look to a 40/15" combo is a 35/18". 33's are smaller than stock btw. 37's with a 3" lift would be a much better look

I'm toying with the idea of getting a 3" lift plus my leveling kit, but I'd have to build a drop mount for my plow frame. 35"s on a 20" rim will give me minimal sidewall, and that's a look I like on these trucks. It was the opposite with that OBS I had, I shaved the calipers to fit those wheels on it.

I went 35 on 20's with a 2.5 lift and I'm happy.
