tire rub question

I have an 03' f-250, I put a 2 1/2" leveling kit and am running 33x12.50's. They rub on the inner fenders when turning, pretty bad. I bought my wheels from someone on CL, so Idk the offset. So my question is, what offset would I need to run 35's? Or will I have rubbing issues period without a lift? I'm wanting to buy new black wheels and 35's.

4.5 inch backspacing. I have 20x12 wheels that are 4.5 inch backspace and 33's. They rub on outer front fender due to the width of wheel. I have an 04 f350 with leveling kit

yes sir.. same for any wheel size.. Obviously the bigger the wheel the more offset.. Such as a 20x12 (like i have) is -44mm offset(4.5 inch backspace) where an 18 inch might have -12 or -24mm offset(i cant remember which one) but it all equals out to 4.5" backspacing which is what you need.
