Help with Crager 17x9 and 17x8 on JK

Looking into one or the other of these two wheels from Crager. They will be mounted with 285/70/17 tires on a JK with a 1" lift. What is the difference here between the two and how would that difference translate into what it looks like on this type of Jeep? Is one better than the other, thanks for the help -

best rim size would be the 17x8 since a 285/70/17 is equivalent to about a 33x11.5

a 9-10" rim would be great for tires wider than 12.5
