Will they fit?

Hey guys I need some help.
06 Commander 2 inch OME lift
These rims http://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Wheels-Jeep-...=BRW900B785045
17x8, 4.5 backspace and 0mm offset.
and 265/70R 17 Firestone Destination AT tires.
Will they fit without rubbing?
I have already done the pinch weld in the front but still have the fuel hoses and air conditioning hoses running through the passenger side fender.
We tried these rims.
http://www.4wd.com/Jeep-Wheels-Jeep-...n=M%2fT1179431
17x9, 4.5 backspacing and -12 offset (with the same tires) and they rubbed terrible in the rear on the RTI ramp. They were real close in the front turning the wheel, on level ground.
I need to decide whether to keep the tires and have them mounted on the new rims or take the tires back and get a smaller size.

You should be fine with the 17x8 with 4.5 BS. That's like running a 1.5 inch wheel spacer on a wheel that's 1/2 inch wider than stock

Thanks that was pretty much my thoughts too.
Just wanted to make sure before I have the tire shop switch the tires over to the new rims.

Yeah 17x9's with 4.5 inches of back spacing sit out way to far. That's why you had that rubbing. The 17x8's won't stick out as far. I'm currently running 17x8's with 4.5 inches of back spacing but have a 305/70R17

Thanks for your help.
They do fit but I had to do some grinding on the caliper brackets in the front.
Wife is happy with it.

That's weird. You would think with 4.5 inches of back spacing they would clear the caliper bracket. Looking at the design of those wheels though I can see why they wouldn't clear.
