35s with add a leaf. Rubbing also depends on wheel backspacing and tire width.

The add a leaf is usually around $100 it's just a thicker leaf with more of an arch to it you gota split the spring pack and put it in the middle. Or you can get an actual levelking kit wich is new front springs usually cost around $500 or so. Personally I would go with the 33's I think it looks better. Is your truck a 250 or 350 should of asked you that the 350's sit a tad bit higher. Or you could go with drop shackles in the front good thing about drop shackles is it keeps the factory ride feel. Check out this website if you wana go with a shackle lift prety good price.

I would go with either 17 or 18's save you a little extra in tire cost plus if you do any offroad stuff like hunting and such with a 33 and 20" rim there is a good chance of dingin up the wheels cause their aint much rubber there. I know you said you were probably gona go with 17's anyways thats what I ended up goin with was a 17 there are more wheel options it seems with 18's though. NIce lookin rims damn good price too.
