how do i get the tires to stick out more?

i am getting a 4.5" lift soon and i want the tires to stick out more to give it a wider/ better looking stance... i have 20"X8" factory wheels on there now and i was told with the stock wheels a 12.50 tire will stick out some is this a fact? if so any pics?
also what if i bought the rough country spacers or some similar to this

Wheel Spacers

would something like that be ok to put on all 4 tires or is that asking for trouble?

thanks in advance!!

Don't go with wheel spacers. Get wider wheels and more (+) offset.

I would buy some wider wheels, 20x10s is the look I go for. The truck on the left is a 20x9 plus 10 offset and the other truck is 20x10 -19. both have 20/12.5r20s.

Heres my dads truck with 20x10 -12 offset wheels with 35s and a leveling kit.

Yeah you need new rims. You want a negative offset to get them outside the fender. 0 offset will be about half to an inch outside the fender, -12 will be about 2" outside the fender, and -24 will be about 3" or so outside the fender.
