Buying new wheels - backspacing/offset ?

I am installing a 4" lift on my truck and I want the tires to have a wide stance but not too far out past the flares. Should i go with a 4.53 backspace and a -12mm offest or 5.71 backspace with an 18mm offset? Help will be much appreciated guys... thanks in advance!
