Wj need offset advice!! 04 jeep grand cherokee

i have a 2004 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo with a 4 inch rough country lift and bushwacker fender flares, im planning to install 33 toyo open country mts. Now the problem i am having is that i dont know what rims would be the best to get? Would rims with a -38 offset look awful on my jeep? i was planning on buying black alloy ion 174 wheels that have a -38 offset and 4 in of backspace. Heres the link http://www.ebay.com/itm/15x10-Black-...af1031&vxp=mtr

ive seen alot of jeeps that say they have -19 offset that looks great but they dont have the fender flares. Any help would be much appreciated!

I'm pretty sure 15 inch aluminum wheels won't fit. I think your only option in a 15 inch wheel will be a steel wheel.

I have 15 inch Pacer rims on my WJ with 3.5 backspacing and they do fit both types of brake calipers(teves and akebono) I did have to move my lead weights out of the way.(closer to the face of the rim in the same location)
Some folks dont like the wheels sticking out this far but I am ok with it.....

so do you think -38 offset would look fine? I want the tires to stick out but I just don't know how it will look. I don't want them to stick out so much that it looks ridiculous but I also don't want them to look like the jeep is on stilts.

Offset or backspacing will differ on differ width rim, try this, might give you an idea,
http://www.1010tires.com/Tools/Wheel-Offset-Calculator
compare with stock,

mine for ex is 17x9" wide, and Are 4.75" BS, they protrude about 1" outside the fender
