Rims question..

Ok, so looking at a set of rims, and Im confused a bit about offset and all that.. I haven't looked for rims before so hopefully someone can help me out. The tires Im wanting to get are going to be 37 x 12.5 x 20 Nitto Trail Grapplers..or 13.5.. which would be better? the rims I'm wanting to wrap have this setup -43MM 125CB. What does that mean? haha.. Im wanting to stuff them under a 6 or 6.5in lift... any help? Will those work? Just curious about all this..

you should go with the 13.5 wide tire. 12.5 is too skinny for a 37 IMO.

If i'm not mistaken the negative offset means that the wheel will stick out farther and you have more lip.

Sounds good, seems to be a bit harder to find the 13.5's now that Im looking harder, but that makes sense.. and the negative offset i believe is what I'm looking for, I want them to stick out some, but to cover them by some pocket flares.. and have no rubbing issues..

I guess the wheels you have are 10" wide or more they will probably stick out 4" past the fenders with that offset pocket flares only cover 2 1/4".
