Sorry, I know this topic has been gone over a hundred times on this forum. I just don't want to buy rims and have them rub like crazy. I have the RR 2.25 lift installed and am planning on going with265/70/17. If anybody has pics of this setup I would truly appreciate it. Thanks

Yes that's probably the best width/backspace combo you can run on these vehicles. My first set of wheels had those specs, and i've been looking for a set of 18x8 4.5BS wheels to surface that i like.

I have 17x8 with 4.5 inches of back spacing but I'm running 285/70R17's. You will be fine with that setup but I would recommend doing the pinch weld mod so you don't have any rubbing

That's great to hear. I've been looking for a month and all the rims I like are 17x9, and I don't want to go with that wide of a wheel with 265's. I was tire shopping for my wife's car and found some real nice rims at a local shop, I think I will go get them. Thanks for the reply's. Do you have any pics of how far they stick out from the flares?

Thanks, that looks great. That sticks out just about perfect.

....and my tires stick out a little more due to them being wider
