    So I've been looking for weeks and have decided on a specific type. I'm looking for Alloy(Aluminum), 17x9 or x8, 4.5" bs, 6x.5.5 lug, and open center like the picture below which unfortunately is a discontinued. Anyone got any leads?

    Quick question on this, would 8 or 9" rim width be preferable for 285/70s? I'm not sure it makes a difference other than the rim sticks out a little further with the same 4.5 backspacing. Thoughts?

    a 285 will fit either width, but 9" is the maximum width a 285 will mount too. Increases the chance of popping a bead while aired down. It'll also stick out an inch further which means more rubbing and trimming.
    On that note, I run 17x9 4.5" back spacing and had 285s for a long time, never popper a bead aired down and like the positioning of the wheels and tires even though it took more cutting to clear them.

    You could also look at these wheels-
    Both options are 17x8 4.5" back spacing

    The Tracker's (discounttiredirect) i posted are 8.5" wide with 4.5" bs. I run the 16x8.5's with 285/75/16's with no problems so far and I've had them on about 100k
