You could check out there site for wheel guide and catalog for wheel specs. of the classic II wheels. The only one they offer is (model # 379431) which has a back spacing of 4 1/2" and -12 offset in a 17 X 9 wheel. This is the wheel I currently have on mine. I really like the way they look, but the down fall that I ran into is rubbing. Do to the fact it is a wider rim and doesn't have the back spacing what superlift recommended etc. With a 2" lift i'm not sure what kind of rubbing, if any, you would be having. With the 4" lift and 33s I have had to bend or, well, remove a piece of the pinch weld and modify my inner fender well. Also I've noticed with the wider wheel and 4.5" back spacing when I turn on a slight incline my tire rubbs the fender flare trim piece. Kinda annoying pulling into a gas station and everyone looks at you because of the sound your vehicle is making when it hits a bump.
But again I don't know if you would have the same problems w/ a 2" lift, smaller tires and the same rim.

Thanks. I have to pay attention to my speed when I turn into parking lots, even my drive way it will rub. I more or less have to crawl just to prevent it from doing it.
