What 15x8 wheels to buy? Backspacing/offset?

Whats an ideal backspacing and offset for a 15x8 wheel, i want the 12.50s even with the fender flares if that helps. Also what are decent rims to buy? The soft 8s are ok but im not sure about black on black.

I have 15x8 american racing chamber teflons with 3.75 backspacing and those rims make the 12.50 wide tire just about flush with the flare.

Nope just a body lift. This isn't too good of a pic but it kinda gives you an idea. I'll try to get a better picture tomorrow.

i have 15x8 nomads with 3.75" backspacing. the tires are 33x12.5 wrangler mt-r/k. they stick out of my fenders by about an 1" to 11/2" but i dont have fender flares. i think the flares add about an inch of width to each side of the truck
