No you don't. If you want the wheel more flush (stick out further), you want a lower offset. Not greater. The lower the offset, the more the wheel will stick out. The higher the offset, the more the wheel will be inside the fender.

All the wheels offered at Tirerack are going to have the correct fitment, so they're not going to give that super flush look you may be looking for. That said, I'd still recommend it. Once you start going with wheels with a low offset (more flush/stick out), you run into problems with rubbing.

Pulling/Rolling the fenders is a process to basically bend the fender out to make room for larger tires and/or lower offset wheels.

And please stop calling tires "shoes".
