If that's the look you're going for I'd recommend at least a -12 offset. With a 6" lift that will look good. My plan is to run 20x9's with a -12 offset with 35x12.5 Toyo MT's and then eventually down the road put a 6" RCX lift on. I figure it will look good now just leveled and still have the stance I want when it's lifted.

I run 17"s with 35"s and they look fine. I've seen big ass trucks with 15" rims and border line monster truck tires and it looks fine. 18 is a great compromise between the big 20" rims and smaller like 17".

In my opinion 33's are small regardless once you start leveling and lifting. You really have to consider 35 or bigger. I like your idea of 4" and 35's.

I considered 4", but I know i'll get bored of it and wish I paid $50 for the 6" so i'm going straight to 6"
+1. It's the tire size that will make the biggest difference in the look of your truck. Wheel size will just give you more or less sidewall so again, go with whatever your preference is.

Also +1 on the lift size. I contemplated going with just a 4" at first but have the same thoughts as gonefishin776. I know I'll get bored with it eventually and end up kicking myself for not spending the $150 more to get the 6".
