Backspacing Question

Ok, Im sitting here tryin to figure out what rims to get and Im lost on what I need. What Im goin with is a 4" superlift and 3" body lift and 35s. Can I go with a 17x9 with a backspacing of 4.75 in. and a -6mm offset? That seems like a ton of backspacing to me, and I sure as heck dont want to be rubbing on anything.
Thanks

that is too much backspacing for a 12.50 wide tire.......you need something that is close to 3.75" backspacing...

if you are going to be running a 12.50 wide tire, then any more backspacing over 3.75" will rub....

if you don't want that wide of a tire you can get an 11.50 or 10.50 but your really going to wish you would have went with the 12.50
