Some members here can assess this down to the nearest 1/4" or better.

If you do go with pocket flares, then I'd want to know my tires are going to at least be even with them, but ideally out an inch or so. That would give a nice look. If your tires are too inboard with such huge flares, to me, that always looks odd - like things weren't incubated long enough before execution.

Var
Var is spot on with the flares....buy them after or during the process once you know EXACTLY what rim you want to run.
Nothing worst than seeing you rims tucked under or extended WAY past the flares if you are wanting flush or near flush

Ok guys here is what I found....I cant find a 0 offset wheel the closest I could find was a +18. The guy at my offroad shop said he would not guarantee it not to rub. So until someone that has done what I want to do can tell me that this or that wheel will not rub im on hold. I can not stand rubbing! I went through it with my last truck and it drove me up the wall! LOL!!

You aren't going to clear a 35x12.5 tire on a +18 offset. It will rub on the upper A-arm for sure. Which isn't even a rub you can deal with if you wanted to, it will tear your tire apart.... So your options are to either downsize your tire or run 1/4" wheel spacers.

Stick with positive offset, 0 at the MOST to keep from rubbing. That -12mm will stick out like 2" and rub like crazy. If you wanna run a 9" wide rim with 35x12.5 tire stay close to 0. Factory flares look nice and tires will stick out just a tad also husky makes mud flaps designed for factory flares

Tons of options out there for chrome rims. Where are you looking? Check out companies like Fuel Offroad, XD, or BMF. All make chrome wheels. Most companies make each line of wheels in both black and chrome. Do you have a specific wheel you're looking for?

-12 offset on a 9" rim won't rub like crazy. Maybe slightly depending on the tire and level size... but it's easily fixed with very minor work. But yes, 0 offset does give less of a chance of rubbing.
