27 vipr and offset question for sportsmen 1000

ran 26 inch OG bighorns with sti hd3 wheels on my old 2012 850 le looking at upgrading my wheels for my 1000 sportsman that came with maxis 27 inch Maxxis viprs. would a 14 x7 wheel with 4 +3 offset appear different and or stick our more than a 14x6 wheel with 4+2 tire of same size?
was looking at the sti 212 which has 14x6 with 4 +2 on front and 14x7 with 5+3 on rear vs sti hd3 wheels with 14x7 all around wheel size

would 14x7 front and rear wheels with 4+ 3 offset all around with 27x9x14 front and 27x11x14 rear tires stick out more than 14x7 front 4 +2 front offset with 27x9x14 tires and 14x8 with 5+3 offset with
27x11x14 set.

IMHO a 4+3 offset wheel looks like SH!T on the XP chassis!!!!!!!!!! So the best option, which there aren't a lot of is to get a 6+1 wheel. Definitely don't go wider then 5+2.
