    There are a lot out there to choose from, just make sure you get the right backspacing/offset.

    Go with 20's. Trust me you won't regret it. I would look at 2crave offroad, Fuel offroad wheels, and KMC's.

    what is the best offset? or the one with the least chance of scrubbing?

    You have to first figure out what wheel sizes will work and fit on your vehicle. You can't just buy any wheel as you will find out. You need to start at tire/wheel websites that have fitment calculators. Try tirerack for starters.

    If you have a lift on your truck you can get proper backspacing/offset specs from the manufacturer of your lift kit.
