I just bought a ‘19 ram 2500 and want to put 295/70/18 on the truck. I was looking at the 18x9 method mesh wheels with a -12 offset. Anyone running the same size tire with -12 offset wheels? Do they rub? I want to keep the truck stock but may have to level it.

Stock wheels are like +44mm offset or close to that. So do the math.
Gain 1/2" track width due to the 1" wider wheel and about another 2-1/4" with the offset difference and a smidge with wider tires, so they'll stick out close to 4" further.
If you're ok with that then leter rip. Not brodozer wide, but a bit more than I'd like. Big fender flares will be on tap unless you're ok with slinging ____ all over the side of the truck and chipping the paint up.

For only 295 tires, I agree, I'd stick with more like a +18 offset.

I put a leveling kit on mine and used a 17” method and 0 offset on 37” it barley rubbed trimmed a little bit and now it doesn’t rub

So the closer to zero and below the further it will stick out? What will keep it flush or just barely sticking out with a 295/70/18?

I currently have 295/70R18 on my stock truck on stock wheels with no rub at all with tons of clearance.
Looking good there. I don't like the tread sticking out, looks like crap.

Then I'm confused, Why do they stick out passed the fender? +20 from what I understand would keep the wheel inside the fender.

It is a wider 9 inch rim with wider tire so if it didn't move in some it would stick out even further. The stock rim offset is in the +50 range I believe.
