RCD 4-5" lift kit - Wheel questions

Looking at getting this kit installed on my truck. I eventually want to put wheels and tires on after this winter. My questions is, can I run the stock Sport 17's on this lift to make it through the winter?

RCD's website states "wheel size of 17” x 8” with a maximum of 4.5” backspacing"... I tried to search the backspacing for the stock 17's but I can't find an exact answer. The best answer I came up with was stock 16's are 4 5/8's backspacing. If that's the case for the 17's, will that difference in backspacing be enough for them to not fit?

Sorry if this has been answered somewhere. First post!

stocks will not work with this lift....stocks have a +30 offset and 5.5 bs
you will need at least a 4.5 bs and a negative offset
The helos i have are 4.5 bs with a -12 offset....hope this helps..good luck

On a side note...the lift is awesome
