*edit* or I could just look at your build, but you have a leveling kit and I don't. Either way I think I'll be fine. I've narrowed it down to the jesters or a pair of ion alloys for this round. I'd just like to get something out of the stock tire instead of spending a bunch of money on new summer rims and then winter rims/tires right after.
My wheels are 17x9 with a -12 offset (4.5 backspace) and my tires are 255/75/17.
I'm running bilstein 5100s @1.75 up front and a 1.5 AAL in the rear. I had to remove the small flap at the front of the front fenders for clearance (I already had my mud flaps removed) I haven't had any issues with rubbing on road, very slight rubbing on the inner fender when turning right and the right front tire stuffed off road. Even with no lift you should be good with the stock tires.
Choosing your offset will depend on a couple of factors. If you plan on ever running 285s or wider or you want a wider aggressive stance you need to go with the -12 offset. The negative to this is that you will lose some clearance at thefender liner/flares when turning.
If you want to keep the stock look and are going to stay at a 265 width tire they are available in a +12 offset (5.5 backspace, the same as stock wheels).
You can also get them with a 0 offset which is half way between the two above. This will give you a little more clearance at the UCA than the +12 offset and a little more clearance at the fender liners/flares than the -12 offset.
