what will work

im putting on an icon 2.5 leveling kit. i think im guna keep my stock 18" rims through winter at least. i want them new nitto trail grapplers. looking at either LT295/70s (34.5" tall 11.7" wide) or 35x12.50s (35" tall 13.3" wide) im worried the 12.50s will rub. you guys know more about this crap than i do. also the 295/70s wouldnt look too narrow would they? tell me what you think. im not leaning one way or another just looking for advice. thank you in advance

The 12.50's will barely rub the control arms at full turn, but it's a smooth surface, so it won't be loud and obnoxious. The 295's probably won't rub. Also, the wider tire will float easier on water (hydroplane). How much offroad will the tires see?
