Pic Request: 4.5" Backspacing Wheels with 33x12.5 tires

don't care about the wheels, tires, or size lift. just looking to see how far the tire sticks out past the fenders. preferably a 9" wide wheel but any 8" or 10" will do.

thanks for anyone who replies!

p.s. - i tried to search for it but couldn't find anything because no one posts their wheel's backspacing haha

edit:
okay i'll post up the pictures and maybe y'all can just tell me what its gonna look like..

here is a member on heres truck before and after he got new wheels.

BEFORE

[IMG][/IMG]
AFTER

[IMG][/IMG]

TaggyTagz (owner of the truck) said he went from 16x7.5 (?) with 4.75" bs (?) to his new wheels 16x10 with 4" backspacing. can anyone confirm that those stock ranger wheels have 4.75" backspacing?

if they do then i would think that with my wheels 17x9 w/ 4.5" backspacing and 33x12.5 mtzs it would be some where in between the two above pictures right? my question is would it be closer to the 2nd picture or closer to the first picture? Ideal for me on a scale of 1-10 (1 being the 1st picture and 10 being the 2nd picture) would be like 6. This may be to much to ask but what would mine turn out on that 1-10 scale? lol

edit2:
p.s. - ill be impressed if someone can actually answer this question accurately with math to back it up

15x8, 32x11.5, 4.5" backspacing.



heres after a one inch increase with wider spindles.



you said he went from 4.75 to 4, but if you ask me, that doesnt look like a .75" increase per side, so i say his math is off. its easy to measure your backspacing. lay somthing flat across the back of the rim, and measure from the mounting plate to the flat object. pretty sure thats backspacing.

Stock wheels are 15x7 or 16x7 with 4.5" bs.

By going to a 17x9 with the same back spacing the tire will stick out 2 extra inches from stock.
