Pro Comp 17x8 or 17x9?

I am looking at pro comp 17x8 and 17x9 and I cant decide what size to go with. The 17x8 have 4.5" backspacing and the 17x9's have 4.75" of backspacing. i am not really familiar in this area so any help would be appreciated. I am looking at these for when i get my lift. in a few months. Thanks

I have ProComps in 17x9 w/ 4.75 bs on my 08 access cab. They only stick out of the fenders about 1.5"'s....I wanted as little as possible hangin out.

Luke, what size BFF are you running...your truck looks sick? What about lift? How's the ride, etc.

Nicely done.

Cheers!

Thanks for the compliment. The BFG's are 285/70/17. They are 33s. The lift is Toytec 3" 884 coil springs with factory Bilstien shocks on all 4 corners. The rear is a block as I have the TSB done. If you have a 4dr I would recommend the 885 coils in front. The ride is great I can't even remember what stock felt like, this in my opinion is better.

How much trimming did you have to do, if any?
