    I know i want to stick with 17" to just transfer my current tires and keep the price down on future tire purchases. The question is they are available in 17x8 w/ 4.5"bs, 0 offset and 17x9 w/ 4.75"bs -6mm offset. What are everyones thoughts on which size to go with? 4.5"bs is the norm for our trucks right, will 4.75"bs make the wheels rub on the uca's like the stock rims/
