So what's a good offset for my 08 to run with a leveling kit and 35's that won't rub anywhere and possibly 37's on a 4.5 inch lift? The wheels I am looking at only come in 0 offset 5 inch back spacing for an 18x9. I think that the stock 18s are 6 inch back spacing? Do I need something with a more positive offset? Thanks

Stock offset is +40 or +44mm. If you look at backspace, you also need the wheel width to determine where the tire will be positioned. 0 Offset will move the wheel and tire center out about 1.75" from stock. That will stick out past the fender about 1-1.25" with a 12.5" wide tire. To clear the radius arms and not stick out too far with a 35x12.50 you want something in the +10 to +20mm range I believe. For a 37" to not rub the radius arms you're pushed out to around zero offset.
