Default Wheel Rubbing

I just threw on fender flares to hide the rust in my wheel wells and now my old wheel and tire setup does not look as aggressive anymore. If I go with 20x12 -44 offset will I encounter rubbing? I'm not concerned if its a little at full turn only if it will cause damage or any other issues. Its an 04 XLT 4WD with a bilstein leveling kit on the front 2". Anyone have a similar setup and have any suggestions? Thanks.

-44 mm offset would be for a lifted truck. Those will stick out a lot. Iirc our trucks (07 for me) factory wheels are +44mm offset.
