Most "CMYK" printers (if you mean inkjets and lasers) are actually RGB
printers. So, you can get the most accurate results using a calibrated
monitor, Gimp's color management in "Color manged display" mode, and
sRGB profile for your image.

You can get better results by calibrating your printer, though.
