Advice on new rims for 37" tires

I've read so many threads, searched, re-read, etc. and just want to get some rims on order soonest.

I have 37x12.5x20 Dick Cepek Fun Country tires and you like some either Fuel or Hostile rims...9" or 10" - I get the real sense the smartest move is 9"

4.5" Carli Performance lift kit goes on next (sitting in the garage right now) AND Bushwhacker fender flares...

I want to ensure I'm not going to rub the radius arms or have a lot of rubbing...I can pull back fender wells.

So I see a lot of 5", 5.5", 5.7" backspacing with either 0 or 1 offset and others.

Can someone give me a proven size?

20x9 with 5" backspacing and 0 or -1 offset seems to be the most common and a lot of reference to 5.5" but I cannot find 20" Fuel or Hostile rims with that offset?

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm pretty sure there's a thread about those tires in the 6.7L section.

Due to only being 12.5" wide as opposed to most 37's being 13.5", a lot of people have ran those tires on even just a leveling kit on stock wheels. I was considering them next if I remain leveled instead of going up. Try and look for the thread in the 6.7 section, a lot of informative posts there.

There is, all on stock rims...which I know I would be fine with, but I'm actually excited to put something else on the truck.

Tim's 2012 F250 Carli Pintop Build

It's a post like the above in that build thread that has me worried on what offset and backspace is correct.

I'm thinking 5.5BS is ideal considering the year of my truck...now for the offset?
