I called ultra wheel and they recommended the 12mm offset, but they have a 0 offset and I wonder if that would prevent any rubbing...
-12mm (negative 12) would be best for a 9" wide rim.
You'll find that 99% of people still had to trim a bunch of fender well plastic to fit 285/65/18's, even with a 3" lift and wheels with 4.5" backspacing.
There's always the exception, such as the thread you posted above. I would be willing to bet those tires rub significantly when there is any suspension flex at all. Note how he also had to glue his fenders with gorilla glue to keep them from rubbing...and one of them broke loose after it made contact with the tire. That doesn't qualify as "minor rub" to me.
If you want a no-rub setup on stock suspension, loo for 285/60/18's. They are 32's and several folks on here have them with no issues. You coud also go with 265/65/18, which is what I have.
