Red face Tires Rubbing on leaf springs. New 10in, 9in Rims or Spacers.

Just got an 02' F250 with a 4in lift with 35x12.50x18. The rub on the leaf spring is starting to drive me nuts. I'm leaning towards new wheels instead of spacers. I am wondering whether to go with a 9in or 10in wheel cause I dont want them to rub. I want it to have a nice stance and stick out a bit but nothing too crazy.

What is the widest wheel I can fit?
What offset is best?
What backspacing is best?

Any advice on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,
