Default Tire Size/Brand and spacer help!

I have a 2002 quad cab with torsion bars cranked to the max rec spec of 25inches center of wheel to fender. I have put on factory 08 20s. I am now doing a small block lift in the rear.

1st question- what are the best 1/4 inch wheel spacers and where to find? I've seen some on summit website.

question 2 and the tough one. Can I clear a 35 12.50?????? I've read someplaces that I cannot go over 12 inches wide, and other threads say they will. any first hand experience??

I'm looking at nitto trail grappler 295 60 which measures 34.5x12.1. I like the 295 65 which is 35.5x12.1 but i'm afraid it will be a little tall.

What are the thoughts from the pros here??!!

35's will fit but depending on what you do with the truck will determine if/how much you will rub. 12.5" wide with a spacer and you'll be fine.

If you're a street only "mall crawler" guy then you'll be fine. If you actually wheel the truck or anything offroad you might have some clearance problems.

Either way cranked bars or a leveling kit and 35s have a stuffed look. Some like it and some don't.
