Default whats everyones thoughts or suggestions on offset fuels!?

I am looking at ordering at set of Fuel 20x10 -44 deep lip Octane's.
i have a 4" lift and Bilsteins set to .7 with 35" Nitto Trail Grapplers on stock 20" sport rims now.

I dont plan on running fender flares.

what is everyones thoughts or suggestions on -44 offset? too much? too hard on vehicle for wear and tear?
with a -44 offset and the 4" lift will there be any rubbing issues with the inner fender? will i need to trim or should it clear no problem?

I deff love the look of the wide stance, and will be going with a far amount of offset, just wondering if i should go with just a hair less then -44?

-44 will be WAY too far out without flares; RCMP and Sheriffs have been ticketing this a lot more on hwy 2, just an FYI. That said, with a 4" lift you should clear with no real issues; guy at work is running a 4" with 35x12.5 TGs on -25 Rockstars and there's still lots of room between the tire and inner fenders. It's a personal opinion, but -25 would be the widest I'd go, you still get 1-1.5" outside the fender with them when you couple the wheel with the width of the tire as well.

ok thank you CdnoilRAM, would running the -24 with my 1/4" spacers not work? just for that little extra, I know its playing with fire but i love the look of wide stance but hate fender flares for some reason.
I have decided to go with the -24 off set, but changed my mind about the width of the rim, would running a 20x12 -24 offset effect every day driving? is it better to go with the 20x10 or 20x9?

the 20x12 would be fine for the rear, but anything wider than 10" on the front can have issues with the control arms because your backspacing would still be 5" with another 1-1.5" of tire, so you'd tend to rub on the UCA. Using the spacer would help some, but with that heavy of a wheel and tire combo you'd be putting a lot of added stress on the wheel studs with anything over a 1/4"

ok thanks so much for the info, youve helped a lot! I think I have decided the size and offset!
