You will certainly be fine!
You can even do a 0 offset if you want it more closer to the body, but -12 will definitely give you nice stance

stock wheel combo is like +17
a "0" offset wheel will typically move your wheel out half an inch or so(personally would recomend this 0 offset)
a -12 offset will push it out aprx an inch and quarter. You have factory flares so might not be a big deal

I am in Pa and have had inspection stations turn me down over a -12 offset without flares. Safest bet is always facory or the "0" offset.

Exactly why I recommended a 0 offset. However not all wheels come in 0 offset np, nor be in stock.
That said, if the OP has flares, the -12 will work.

Sweet!
Post some pics when done. Profile shot down the truck so we can see how flush it is (which will be close) and side shots
