proper wheel width/offset for running 35s with level

Im wanting to run 35s on my leveled 2001 350. Should be no problem from what I hear. For rims I am kind of liking the Mickey Thompson Classic Big Rig. They have them in 20x9 with -13mm offset, and 20x11 with -38mm offset...both 4.5" backspacing. I prefer the look of the 20x11 for a little more deep dished look. Would it be possible to run 35x12.50 tires with a 20x11 rim with -38mm backspacing? or would I run into rubbing issues on the exterior fender areas?

If Im doing my maths right (which its entirely possible Im wrong) The 20x11 would stick out 2 more inches to the outside, and an extra inch to the inside, than the 20x9 given the increased offset added onto an extra inch on each side of the rim.

Help...

4.5" backspacing is great for the leaf spring side.

But I'm pretty sure you're going to rub on the fenders with the 11" rim with only a level

Ya thats what I figured...and with 20" rims I wouldnt want to go any smaller than 35s. And Im not sure I like the look of the 9" wide version of those rims. with the huge center hub area the 9" wide rim with less offset looks kinda dumb in comparison to the 11" wide one with more offset and a deeper dish look.

Here is a comparison. Aside from the Ford being the better looking truck from the start...the difference in looks of the 20x11s vs the 20x9s is huge in my opinion.

20x11:


20x9:

Do you just want those rims because of the simulation 10 bolt pattern?

No I actually like the overall look of them. Similar look to the stock 16" rims I currently have but more aggressive and modern looking in the 20" size. But the simulated bolts may be playing a little into it as I also like the semi truck look to them. Why do you ask?
