Negative (-) offset will move the wheel outboard of the mounting flange whereas a positive (+) offset will move the wheel inboard so to answer your question, the -12 wheel would be the best fit.

Here's a graphic that show's what I'm talking about....

I agree with Boosted. The -12 offset wheels will have your tires sticking out about 2" past the fender. So approximately 1.25" past your flares. That will be the best looking set up with a 4" lift.

I agree with both the fellows above ^^^ -12mm would be the best.

On a side note if you have not got a quote from us for the lift/wheels/tires yet reach out to us we get some of the best pricing on BDS, wheels and tires, and can get you some killer combo deals if you purchase it all at once. Just shoot us an email with what you are looking for to sales@bullysperformance.com and don't forget to mention you are a Z member and we will get you hooked up good

Thanks
Jeremiah

Like they said before me, -12mm will give you the look you are asking for. I am running 17x9 XDs with 37x12.5 Nitto Trail Grapplers and they extend out past the Bushwacker Extend-a-fenders that I am running on the truck.
