Is your truck leveled or stock? You will need to be leveled in order to run a 35x12.5 tire.
The pros to going down to a 17" rim is cost. Is quite a bit cheaper to get 17" wheels and tires than it is to get 20's. The cons are, IMO, they don't look as good. I personally think 20's look better on a full size truck. But everyone has their own opinion on that. Go with whatever you think looks better.
Possible cons for running a -12 offset depends on how you look at it. The only thing that's going to change significantly is how far your tire sticks out past the fender. So that does create the possibility of rocks and suck being thrown up the side of your truck.... but it doesn't happen often. That also gives your truck a much nicer stance which is worth it.
