2.5 backspacing.. too much?

Looking for a more agressive stance.. I saw some pro comp steelies in 17x8 with a 2.5 backspacing.. Would looks perfect for the setup I'm looking to do. Getting some bushwacker fender flares too for that wider look. Question is is running 2.5 backspacing rims too hard on the truck or will it be ok? I'd rather do that than run spacers.. Anyone run such a setup? Comments r appreciated!

Its lacking something.. I'd just love a wider stance on it and I need to get rid of those flashy drug dealer looking rims.. Makes it look like a pavement princess.
