Wheel/tire options on my newly leveled '08 QC...

Hey guys, well I definetly need some advice as to what wheel/tire size combo I should go with now that my '08 is level and ready for an upgrade.
I can't decide if I should go with a 17, 18, or a 20" wheel. Then there's the width and backspacing to consider. I want to go with 33-12.5 since that's as large as I can go (I think) on a leveled truck. I'd appreciate pics of your leveled rides with your wheel/tire specs so I can get an idea of what look I want most.
Thanks guys, much appreciative of any responses!

4.5in bs and -12mm os is the norm,.. I am going to an 18x9 myself because when I get mud in my rims it does nothing but make noise and scratch the inside because the calipers are so close.

very nice wheels and tires indeed! Had that same exact tire on my old CTD, and LOVED them almost as much as Goodyear did!

Depending on which leveling kit you have, I believe the biggest tire you can go is 35". I'll let the experts correct me if I'm wrong, but this is what I've been told and looking into myself for the Spring.

I'm going to go with a 35" Dick Cepek Radial FC II on a 17" rim.

That's with a 2" leveling kit by RevTek.
