It all depends on what you care about the most. The ride/performance or looks. A 17" or 18" rim will ride better on the street with more sidewall on a 35" tire than a 20" or 22" rim will for sure. Price point is a big factor also, bigger wheels means a lot more $$$ for tires. A 35" tire for a 17" rim might be $250 where that same brand 35" on a 20" might be $500.
I have never even heard of a Nitro Grabber MT tire...I would stick with Toyo Open Country M/T or Nitto Trail Grappler both with the E load rating version. If you want something less aggressive be sure you still get the E load rating otherwise it will wear out sooner with the heavy weight of our trucks, especially if you tow.
With a stock or conservative offset you can probably clear 35's with minimal rubbing on stock suspension but a small 2.5" readylift or leveling kit from Icon or Carli would definitely help a lot. The rim width is a big factor here also, you can't run a 20x10 for example without a level and even then it will rub most likely. stay at 9" widths or smaller if you're staying stock height regardless of your rim diameter.
