???'s About Wheel Offsets

I am wondering if there is anyone on here running 4 in. lift with 35 tires?? I am running that on stock wheels and they rub my springs, which kills my turning radius.

So a friend told me to get some wheels that have more of an offset. I understand what he is talking about, but I don't know how much offset. Can someone elaborate or give some ideas that would help. Thanks

I went with a 16x8 using 4" backspacing (MT Classic IIs) which don't rub. Actually, my ProComp lift recommended the 4" backspacing.
