How wide can I go on stock suspension?

I'm sure this has been answered before on here, but I can't find it in a search. Right now I'm running factory 20s with 35 12.50 Coopers with all kinds of room. Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the factory 20s are 8" wide. I'm wanting to go to a Novakane or Hostage. Can I go to a 20x10 -12 or -19, Or do I need to go with a 20x9 -0? I don't want to lift because I have about 1/2" getting in the garage as it is. I just need to know what rubs and what doesn't.

Yeah you can go to a wider rim. I'm running a 20x10 with a -12 offset. Mine is leveled an inch an a half without rubbing. With 35" tires yours may rub on the inner fender a tad but you can take a zip tie and pull it back. That's what I did.
