gotta question about wheel sizing

Just picked up a 8in superlift lift for my rig.The specs on it say I can run up to a 38x14.50 I beleive.I plan on running a smaller tire,probably a 37x12.50x17 parnelli jones dirt grip(for budget purposes) which has a fairly aggressive tread.I dont know what offset/bs on my new wheels I need to keep from rubbing.I had these same tires on my previous truck with a 6in lift but 2 different sets of wheels later, I never got them to stop rubbing.....Im looking at a 17x9 pro comp or xd wheel if that makes a difference.I don't mind if they stick out a little,I just want to be able to turn as close to lock to lock as possible.Thanks fellas!

do a 10" wide wheel with 4.5" back spacing and everything will be fine.
