17x8 Wheels, 4.5 Backspace, 0 Offset

Will these wheels work with a 2.5" lift, pinch welt mod and 265/70r17 tires?

Photos with this setup would be appreciated.

Did the PW mod. No rubbing at all. It's never been offroad, just a daily driver.

Was there rubbing before PW mod?

I'm looking at 31's on 17" Cragar wheels that have a 4.5 backspace.. have a 2.5" lift, but trying to get away from the PW mod, but I'll do it if need to.
