Default 2WD AR62 American Outlaw wheels - 15x7 or 15x8?

Im restoring my 88 d21 2wd auto z24i. Im about to purchase some American Racing AR62s to replace the stock 14 wheels.

I want a nice lip but dont want it out rather than sides of truck. I did a 4WD fender conversion. How much difference will the 1 of width make?

Too much weight? Too wide?

What offset? I believe the standard offset for the 4wd on 15x6 steelies is -40mm and the 15x7 alloys is -30mm. My 15x7 with 0 offset come out to the edge of my huge fender flares.
