Wheel rubbing issue?!

I have a 2001 f250 with the stock 16x7 lariat wheels with BFG AT 285/75r16 tires, the truck is leveled with a 2.5 kit, and just barley rubs when I'm turned all the way and on uneven terrain. I want to jump up to a 16x10 wheel with -38 offset. Does anyone know how bad I will rub?

You shouldn't rub at all with a level and the 33s. Right now you probably rub the leaf springs and with the more offset wheels you will definitely clear them. If anything you may rub the wheel well or bumper but it shouldn't be bad. I have 16x8 with -12 or so offset without level and same size tires and rub at full turn on the wheel well. If I were leveled I could clear 315/75/16.

My truck is 100% stock suspension and I just installed 18X9 -12mm with 285/65/18 Michelins today. We mounted the fronts and turned the wheels both directions, it's close, but no rubbing anywhere.
