i encourage you to do very thorough research on this one.
there are many, many threads out there which describe situations where wheel and tire package was ordered long before final ride height was established.
of course, problems result when it's not done right the first time.
if you look around online you may be able to find a build similar to yours with some clues about which set-up offers good fitment.
in my opinion the best way to handle this issue is to find a cheap "roller" package to ride on until final ride weight and height are established. then, determine how wide you want your tires, measure for backspacing and calculate offset to get exactly what is required for best fitment.
best of luck getting it figured out...
