Right at bottom of the pinch weld on the body behind the front tire. Like I said just have to be careful when crossing a dip or ditch is all. They stick out out about 1 inch or 1 1/2

My moto metal 955's have the same measurements, but I am running a 325/65r18. They do rub when you hit a bump at full lock. I should have gone with 6" instead of 4.5" to clear properly. Long story short, they WILL rub, badly: see below WITH 4.5"

Alot of it depends on how wide of tire you are running and it depends on the tire manufacters

I run Black Moto Metal 951s 18X9 with Toyo M/T 35/12.50/18...Got a 2 inch level kit and they dont rub. They are pretty close, but no rubbing. Before I got the level kit they rubbed a lot, but you should be good.

They are the same...4.5 backspace -12 offset....They stick out about 1 1/2-2 inches. Looks sweet though...Gives it the big tough truck look. Whats your email...I have some pics before I got the level kit.

Yea they rubbed if you cocked the wheels all the way, but they rubbed the plastic of the inside of the bumper so no harm done. Be careful though, because if they rub against the body of the truck at the corner, you will have some torn up tires. Best bet would be to get the level kit, and have no worries. Without a level kit though, I would say stick with 33s.

With the leveling kit, no rub with 35/12.50/18 on the moto metal 951s...With stock wheels, you should be able to fit 37s with maybe a little rub on the control arms.
