Aftermarket wheel offset??

Hey guys, looking to buy 17" rims going to put 33x12.5 on them, what kinda offset should I be looking for? Size of rim? and width? All the wheels that catch my eye have a 0 offset, which I'm pretty sure wont work on my truck. I have aftermarket wheels on right now 20" rim with 35" tire but want to go smaller as I want more sidewall.. They are -12mm offset, and they still rub on the leaf spring when I crank it hard.

Any info from all angles on this would help greatly.

You want 4.5" BS...offset doesn't matter.
