Is this the right backspacing?

Thinking about picking up some new 17x9s and was wondering what kind of wheel spacing is supposed to be right. Here are the specs

Back Spacing = 5 in.Offset = 0 mm.Hub Bore = 83.312Finish = Black

I dont know much about backspacing on these bigger wheels so any help is appreciated.

Stock backspacing is 4.5" so those will be sucked into the wheel well more, but they are also wider so that might make up the difference. I'm not too sure, wait until someone else chimes in.

yes it makes up the difference, in fact it will come out about 1.5" out from stock.
The wheel is 2" wider and only 1/2" difference in backspacing.

I think that will be perfect, should still be inside a bit. Closer to being flush than stock, thats for sure.
