you want at the most 4.5" backspacing and if you lift it, you are going to need i think 4" or less...

Backspacing : Distance from the backside of the rim to the mounting surface.

Offset: Distance from the centerline of the rim to the mounting surface. Not sure which way is positive/negative.

and here https://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html



so it looks like between 4.5 and 5" of backspacing, thats kinda high.

but i have 17x9 wheels with 4.5 backspacing (-12 offset) and a 34x12.50 tire and i dont have any problems at all.

looks like they will have too much backspacing especially if you are going to lift it...if you are set on those you could get spacers...do some research on them though...there are many opinions on wheel spacers...

It's not soo much the lifting that causes the problems (except with fabtech spindles) its the larger radius of the tire.

Im not dead set on them.. I like the simple look of the circle's.. but i dont like chrome, polished.. i like the gun metal color.. or black...

The rim size/backspacing/offset is still a little ocnfusing.. but i will re-read it a few more times..

its alright

5 on 4.5 is the bolt pattern, meaning there are five lugs and the 4.5" is the distance between 2 of them measured like this:
