Default -12 or -24 without rubbing?

I have a 2.5 front level. 1.5 body lift. 315/70/17 which will be 12.7 wide on my wheels. looking at 17x10 -12 or -24. Will either of these cause rubbing?
Also, I currently have a 8 inch wheel. I've read online where a wider wheel doesn't make the tire stick out anymore but doesn't it make the tire wider?
Thanks!

You should be fine with either the -12 or -24 offset with regards to rubbing. The body lift gives you the extra clearance you need.

A wider wheel most definitely makes the tire stick out more (along with the negative offset). The -12 offset will have the tires sticking out about 2.5" past your fender, the -24 offset will have them 3" past your fender.

Those measurements are without considering the wider wheel right? It would be a little more than the 2.5 or 3?
I want to add the pocket style flares but I'm not sure the -24 will be enough to still have some stance. I don't want them flush

That is considering the 10" wide wheel.

If you want to have a little bit of stance with pocket flares then get the -24 offset. They'll be sticking out about 0.5" past the flares.

I'm running a 2.5 in level with a 1.5in body lift. I also have 20x10 -24 offset fuels wrapped in 35x12.5 trail grapples. No rubbing. I added some pocket style flares and its flush but looks pretty good. Wouldn't mind a little bit more of a stance though.
