Received my JL Sahara (need help with after market wheels & tires)

Hi Everyone, I just purchased a new JL Sahara with all options except navigation/upgraded stereo.

I can't be happier with it (I love my new toy). As I always do with my cars and now with my first jeep I want to change the wheels & tires. But since I've never owned a jeep or a truck I'm going to need some help from this forum.
The wheels I want only come in the following sizes:
17"×9" (offset -12")
20"×9" (offset -0")
20"×12" (offset -44")
A friend told me that I should go with the following set up..20×12 (offset -44") with toyo 35X13.50R20 open country tires

What I'm worried about is how much this combo might make my tires stick out past the fenders.

Attached is a picture of a jeep I saw today that shows the look I'm after.

Please help me as I want to pull the trigger on the wheels and tires right a way.

Jose (JKR)

to the Forum..

Congrats on your Wrangler purchase!

17"×9" (offset -12")=4.5 Back space. This will give you the look, plus will be the best for both on Highway and off Road.

Many on the Forum run this combination..
