F350 Platinum Wheels / Tires Need Help

I just bought a 13 F350 Platinum truck and want to change out the wheels and tires, I can't stand the skinny tires that come with the truck.

The tires from the factory are a 275/65/R20, which I believe is about a 34.5" diameter tire.

The tire height is fine with me but I want to get something wide and more aggressive on there. I have read a few threads that say some guys are running 35 x 12.5 tires on their trucks but couldn't find anything very recent. I don't want to have a lot of trouble with rubbing and such so I am looking for someone with this experience.

A few things I need some feedback on are what width wheel can I go to, what width tire can I go to and what backspacing would I need. I am not familiar with the backspacing at all so any help would be great! Also, I am debating between the GoodYear Duratracs and the Toyo ATII's, any thoughts?

I don't plan at this point to do any lift / leveling kits so the truck will pretty much stay in its stock height.

9" wide wheel between a +24 and +12 offset with 35x12.5 is perfect! Also Toyo AT2 for sure.

What is the stock wheel offset? I assume the offset you are telling me will push the wheels out more than stock??

Also, does a 35x12.5 run fairly true to a 35" tall tire? I thought I remember seeing someone on here say that it's actually smaller...? Am I just dreaming that up?

I had toyo MT on my last truck and just want something to last a bit longer and be better for everyday driving. I really liked the toyo's, I do like the aggressive look of the Duratrac though, are they more comparable to an MT?

Stock is 8" wide wheel with a +40 offset. 9" wide +24 will be sucked in as close to stock with no rubbing at all, with 35x12.5. If you wanted them to stick out more run the +12, or even a 0 offset.

The actual diameter varies from brand to brand. For instance my nittos are suppose to be 34.5" tall and are actually 33.25". But it seems most brands say they are about .5 - 1" smaller then what they say.

Gotcha, I would like them in closer, don't want them sticking out too much, just want that wide look without too much disturbance. I would assume the closer to stock you get the less the chance for rubbing?

I am worried about rubbing... When I play with it just stock there doesn't seem to be much room before they will rub, especially with a 12.5 tire. You sound like you know your stuff though! If there are any guys on here running a similar setup let me know!!!
