Will these size tires fit on my truck with just a leveling kit or do I need spacers?

2" leveling kit or the Bilstein 5100 height adjustable shocks, from what I have read, and you should be in the green. If you are staying on the stock 20" rims, you will need 1/4" spacers, otherwise rubbing tire against upper control arm.

Tires will clear with the right wheel specs. What wheels are you running?

You'd need a spacer if you're running a 12.5" Wide tire or it will rub on the control arm, and at 35" tall you'll need a level lift as well.

What is the typical offset for an aftermarket wheel for the 4th Gen trucks? I like the look of them sticking out an inch or two beyond the fender.

Yup will need a spacer or a negative offset rim. Personal experience with a + 18mm offset and 295x60x20tire rubbed the upper control arm. Now gonna go with a smaller tire and keep rims. Now selling the tires. Sometimes things don't work...

The stock wheels are +19mm offset
I bought zero offset wheels which are 3/4" further out than stock.
With 35 x 12.50 x 20's on them they fit perfect and theres about a 1/2" gap on backside for clearance.

Excellent info! What lift did you go with to be able to run the 35s? You don't have any rubbing issues?? I was thinking about doing a 2.5" level kit, and from my understanding, that will fit a 35" tire, with no issues.
