If you want to know the best debt-to-income ratio for credit scoring purposes, there really isn't one. If you're applying for a mortgage, bankers will want your debt to be under 36% of your income. But there are other factors to consider. Here are a couple of good articles on the subject: http://www.investopedia.com/articles/07/debt_to_income.asp  https://origin.bankrate.com/brm/news/mortgages/20070116_debt_income_ratio_a1.asp
