Wheel offset

Currently running 285/75 Toyo MT’s on my 07 Rubicon factory wheels. Wanting a wider looking stance. I assume my factory wheels are 9” Thinking of purchasing 17x10 fuel Mavericks and running same tire. How much negative offset can I go with to get the look I want without putting too much stress on axles, bearings, etc? Also will 10” wheels cause me issues with mild off roading? Or...should I stick with 9” wide fuel wheels and just negative offset? Any info greatly appreciated. Pics of your jeep will help me too!!

stock rims are 7.5" wide and have 6.25 backspacing. I think a 10" wide rim on a 285 tire is too wide. go with an 8-9" wide rim and 4.5-5.2 backspacing or just keep your rims and add 1.5" spidertrax spacers.

I am running stock rims with Spidertrax and LT295-70R/17 Nitto TeraGraplers.
