If you're running a 18x9 -12 offset rim without a leveling kit you're going to need to stick to pretty much a stock size tire (maybe slightly larger) to avoid rubbing. A 18x9 0 offset would be the best for you to avoid any kind of rubbing.

That being said, a leveling kit will not ruin ride quality at all. If you use the Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts to level it you will actually increase your ride quality. I definitely wouldn't hesitate to level the truck is ride quality is all you're concerned about. For you I would recommend getting the Bilsteins and setting them at 2.1" then getting those 18x9 -12 offset rims and run a 305/65/18. It sounds to me like that would be exactly what you're looking for. Keep in mind that set up will be sticking out past your fender about 1-1.5 inches depending on the tire.
