Default Newbie Backspacing and Offset Question

I have 2014 STX Supercab. I am going level my truck with the Bilstein 5100 kit. Then im going to get 20x9 fuel mavericks. I want to get a tire in the 33-35" range. what offset and backspacing will need to so I don't have any rubbing. I also want the tires to stick out around 1.5". I have been doing a lot of reading but haven't found a definite answer. Any suggestions would be great. Pictures would also be great.
Thanks a lot

Check out the tire size sticky at the top of the page. There's a spreadsheet in there that has a lot of data about different tire/wheel size combos with different amounts of lift/level and what fits without rubbing, or with trimming, etc.

In general, the closer to stock size wheels (width/backspacing, diameter is irrelevant), the larger tires you can fit. But before you get too far with the wheels, you really need to narrow down your tire size options. There can be a big difference in a 33 and a 35 when it comes to fitment.

I have a '13 with 5100s, 20x9 fuel mavericks +1 offset and 295/60r20 tires. I had to do some cutting but other people have ran this setup and only had to modify a little bit of plastic on the flare. Tire sizes vary between brands, though. My tire is 34.2" tall whereas the 295/60r20 can be 33.9" so that may be the problem I ran into. It was so close to fitting without rubbing.

I think it's the stance you're going for. Don't have many good pics from before I put my wider fender flares on though.









I even photoshopped out the fender flare holes for ya too lol
