Advice needed!!!!

Ok, I have a 2.5" leveling kit on my truck and I am currently running 285/75/18's(which measure to be 35.1" tall according to toyo) on stock wheels. I am going to be getting 20x9 wheels in the future, like between now and May. I was wondering if anyone else was maybe running the same size leveling kit with 20x9 wheels. I need to know what size tire works best and the best backspacing and offset for the wheel. THANKS IN ADVANCE

i also have a leveling kit and i have stock ford 20's which i was told were like 8.5" wide and im runnig nitto mud grapplers 35x12.50 and they are workin fine but i wanted to get wheels for it and the guy told me that with anything less than a positive 18 offset (or maybe 15 not sure) would catch my bumper and the more negative you go the worse off you are. so i was told to get a four inch lift for the moto metal 951's i wanted.

I think you want 5-5.5 backspacing. You could use a 295/60/20 or a 325/60/20 which will be a little taller and wider.
