Did I Order The Wrong Offset?

I have a 3 inch lift and I just ordered new wheels and tires today, but now I'm second guessing my offset choice. The wheels are d-window 16x8 with 4.0 offset and the tires are 265/75x16. I want the wheels to stick out a little, but I'm not after that ricer stance. How bad will the fender rub be? I'm really considering changing my order to 4.5 offset.

Thanks.

I'd definitely go with a more shallow backspacing. Those are going to protrude too much for sure, given that stock backspacing is 6".

Thanks for that. I did change my order to 4.5 backspacing and your pictures make me glad I did. Your jeep looks great, I cant wait until my wheels come in. These are what I picked up. https://www.visionwheel.com/wheel/44...1&sizeID=29778

Not sure what happened there. I got these in matte black with black ring, not the machined ring. https://www.discounttire.com/buy-wheels/vision-manx
