Default what backspacing should i use?

About to put a 3" level kit on my 06 2wd 1500 going with 33x12.5x20 tires wanna make sure I get the correct backspacing on the fuel octane wheels I'm gonna get stock backspacing on my factory wheels are 5" and its already close as hell to the upper control arm so I'm thinking backspacing is gonna play a big part of keeping it off that control arm

Here's mine:

20x10 Helo Maxx Wheels w/ -12mm offset.
305/55/20 Rocky Mountain ATS tires which are 33"s tall and 12.5" wide in translation.

It looks close only because of the factory set of runningboard/fender flare set up. They drop down 2" from the actual fender curve which sucks. But they do keep all the salt and rocks off my truck and rocker panel area.

no problem.. I'd definitely like to see pics with the wheels on. I bought Black Wheels because I am tired of changing wheels every spring and fall. And Chrome is so much work to keep clean.

I swear, the older I get, the shorter the days get.
