08 FX4 Wheel and tire help

Hey guys, I know this has been ran in the ground, but here it goes again. I have a stock 2008 F250 FX4 that I am ready to put wheels and tires on. I want a 20x9 with a 35x12.50 and want to know what offset i would need to make this work. Also I would like to keep them tucked as much as possible without any rubbing issues. Thanks in advance.

I would ask the tire and wheel shop when I got ready to purchase the wheels and tires, that's what i did, they were the most knowledgeable source for me at the time......

You got professional tire shops around you? I don't trust the 16 year old kids at discount tire / big-o / Les / Ect...

One of those "old guys" decided to sell me a set of 5x4.5 wheels for my car that had a 5x115 bolt pattern! When I switched out my winter tires on the stock rims, and saw the 5x4.5 stamped on the back of the wheel, I was !

That is one of many problems I have had tire shops. I learned everything I needed to learn about wheels and tires so I don't have to trust wheel monkeys.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to this, but what kind of problems could I expect to run in to with a 20x9 with a +10 offset. I guess what I am asking is where should I expect the rubbing to be at? Also if this would be an issue, would the rubbing be constant or at full lock?

If you rub, it will be fender while turning and going over a bump.
