I have Toyo m/t I love them they ride great and get great traction. 9" wheels fit under the wheel wells if you go with a 6" back space. If want them to stick out go with a 4.5" back space. If you want to run 35's and leveling kit the more the tires stick out the more they rub.

they'll stick out about 1.5". and then whatever tire bulge you've got.

I ran some 325/65/18 ATZs and they didn't work so well in the mud. Find an AT that has an open pattern or just get a mud tire.

The atz's are hard to balance, alot louder than I like, and pick up rocks very easily. Now that they are wearing down they seem to wonder. I have pulled quit a bit with these tires, but will be lucky to get 25,000 miles. They do look good, check out heavyassaults sig pictures.

On your truck with a leveling kit I think you could get any of the popular 9" wide wheels in either 4.5" -5" bs with a 35" tire under it.

My 17x9 procomp wheels were 4.75" bs and -6mm off set and they barely stuck out at all. Now I have 18x10's with 4.5" bs and -25mm off set and they stick out way far.

As far as the tires, I have only known 2 people that had the ATZ's ; my gf's dad put them on his jeep for a day and took them off because they rode bad and a friend of mine has them on a set of wheels that he never uses because they ride bad and don't get traction. The ATZ's look really good but I guess don't perform as well. I know its not on your list but the I loved my procomp Xtreme AT's, and Cooper Discover ST's
