quick question about rim and tire size

Hey guys, im picking up some 4runner rims tommrow for the summer,plus i need to fill the fenderwells a bit more. The rims are 17" and i read somewhere they stick out about an inch farther than stock taco rims due to there backspacing, now my question here is i would be fine running 265/70/17 tires right with no rubbing issues? i have 5100's up front set at 1.5 also, right now i run 245/75/16 on the stock steelies for the winter, here my truck now and the rims im picking up.

If you put them on and there is no noise when cranked all the way left or right when approaching or exiting an incline, they aren't rubbing.

If they do, minor trimming will fix it right up.

Seriously, just gotta try it and adjust as necessary.
