17x9 with a -12 offset? Will it work?

Hi everyone Im new to the Forum but a decent shade tree. Recently put a 2inch R/C on and Looking at some wheels and tires 265/70/17 Nitto grapplers and mounting them on a 17x9 with a -12 offset has anyone tried this combo? I understand there will be some mods that need to be done to the pinch weld but I am worried about the flares dont mind a small amount of trimming but I want tit to be unoticed. I used the calculator and come up with 4.5 backspacing and pushing the wheel out 2.7 inch farther then stock 245/65/17 any help would be appreciated. i am looking at the Ballestic Jester wheel in black if curious

I wouldn't!!! I have a 4 in lift, mickey thompson classic ii wheels which have 4.5 in of back spacing with -12 offset. I have modified my wheel wells so much that I am still rubbing. As of right now, if I turn on a slight incline my tire hits the exterior fender trim. I know some members are using a 17X8 with 4.5 in of back spacing, not sure on the offset, but are having more luck than I with a 17X9.

I think you might be alright, because that's almost exactly my setup.

Read my post in my Garage thread for further details:

I've had absolutely no rubbing issues.

Ummmm, the reason you have no rubbing issues is because your running a 275/60R17. That tire is only 30 inches tall. Im running 265/70R17 which measures a hair under 32 inches tall and would have had crazy rubbing if I didnt bend over the pinch weld and re mold the plastic inner fender well. I still get monor rubbing when wheeling hard. And im only running 1.25 inch spacers. Those 17x9's with that back spacing will sit out a lot farther then my setup.

That is my exact setup- I have trimmed the fenders and they grab a little at about 80-85 percent turn. It is a little annoying but I'll just let it push me towards the 4" lift. It grabs the actual plastic flare in the front and will sometimes pop the plastic rivet off. I have cut sections out of the plastic inner well which helped a bit.

So back to square one what is a recommended rim then already have the tires but I dont want wheel spacers would like a wider stance but dont want a bunch of issues with the rubbing. I want black wheels would a 0 offset work or do i need to go with a +25 wheel I like the look of the XD's and ballistic wheels and some of the Helo's

Look at the 17 Inch Ultra Thunders. They have some in 17X8 with 5 1/8 and 5 3/4 backspacing that would work good.
