With a leveling kit, you should be able to install 35x12.5x18 tires on whichever wheels you want.
The closer the offset is to stock, the less rubbing you get.
I have a bigger offset (which makes my tires stick out a couple inches and BARELY get some rubbing on my plastic pcs... which all can be pulled back with zipties.
This would not be true, for his truck. His truck has a leaf spring front suspension, so more offset (high negative number) is better. With a '99-'04, 4.5" backspace is what you want. This equates to about -12mm offset on a 9" wide wheel, -24mm offset in a 10" wide wheel, etc. Backspace and offset are directly related.
Also, 35's on a leaf spring front suspension is a crap shoot. Some rub terribly, some don't. IMO, they are most likely going to rub.
