17x8.5 -6 offset 4.5 backspace will it work?Has anyone tried this set up?

Looking at running the ATX Thug wheel on my commander I have a 2inch R/C and a 1/2 inch spacer on top of that anyone tried running this set up 17x8.5 with a negative 6 offset with a 265/70 Nitto AT? I like the wider stance acording to tire calc. it gives me 4.5 backspace and sticking out 2.1 farther then stock with a 245/65 and stock 17x7.5 I have the 6 inch backspaced rims. If you have any pics would love to see them

I ordered KMC XD Hoss wheels 17x9 with 4.5 backspacing and 265/70 Wrangler MTR w/ Kevlar. Also running the 2" R/C. I am deployed overseas right now but I will let you know when I get home in a month if that worked. My answer is its going to work and the real question is how much rubbing.
