17x9 5" backspacing wheels, will it work?

Hey guys,

Been trying to understand wheels n all that good stuff but i suck with numbers. So i thought id ask all the good folks out there for some tw wisdom... I am gonna put 1.75 billies in front and i got the tsb in the back...

I like a set of rims in this size:17x9 with 5" back space. Was thinking of getting 265-70-17 rubbers. Would this work?

thx!

The wheel is fine. Check to make sure those tires are approved for 9" wide wheels though. You can find that info on the tire manufacturers website.

I'm running almost exactly this setup (I have 18" wheels, but we still have the same tire diameter, so it doesn't matter, and I have 2" leveled, as you'll have 1.75"). Like KPT said, doublecheck your tire is good for 9" rims and you'll be fine.

You might have a tiny bit of rubbing in the front of your wheel well - depending on your alignment results. I had to remove my front bumper mudflap, they only had these on 2012's so you shouldnt have to worry about that.

You'll be fine.
