I would go for a 0 offset, my friend has that offset on.his ram and I.like the way it fits the truck better than my +12. A leveling kit always makes the truck.look better but I cleared my 285/60 and 305/55' on my 20's with no.problem except for the 305 rubbing the swaybar on hard turns.

i would go with a +0 offset or a +6mm offset at most, and as said above you will want defiantly entertain the idea of putting on a level kit your stock tires should be very close to a 31 the tire you have listed is a bit bigger than that so you would want to at least level the truck to insure proper clearance there is no need to do a full lift just so the tire will fit if that is all you are after, might i recommend bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks set to 2.1 or 2.8 that should do the trick and level you out a bit you could also get a set of pro-comp zx-20014's and set them to 2.75 that would do it also.

i can get you a set of bilstein's for $230 with free shipping anywhere in the lower states
procomp zx-20014's would be $215 with free shipping also. if interested my contact info is below.

the offset and the backspacing are similar however if you go with a 20x9 and a 0 offset your backspace would be 5" i dont remember the exact formula to come up with this i will try and find it in my notes after a while and post it up for you.

i did find a nice chart though i will attach it for you
