best offset wheel for a "shouldered look"

hello all
newbie (kinda) here: just wondering which tire wheel combo for a 2013 JK Oscar Mike Ed.unlimited would get a "shouldered look"? perhaps one tire lugs worth outside the factory flares is what I want. I am going with a rancho or skyjacker 2.5 lift still a toss up on tires and wheels though...Black rock viper 900s or AEV pintlers, pro comp or BFG's size? any help is great not too proud to take advice
Thanks
Josh

Its all about backspacing and rim width. That will let you know how far they will stick out.

or go with narrow flats and they stick out more. 15x8 3.75Bs on 35x12.5x15"s



about as wide as it gets.

Spidertrax 1.5in wheel spacers or aftermarket wheels with 4.5" backspacing.

That's kind of what I was going for too. These are 17x9 wheels with 4.5" backspacing, and 285 width tires.



I've since put the terra carrier on the back, but this pic shows the wheel offset the best.
