backspacing and offset for OME HD lift 17 x 8" wheel can fit with 265/70/17 rubber.

I'm willing to do the pinch weld mod.

Been searching the forum for days and most the threads are all about tires and needed mods on stock wheels.

I would like a more aggressive stance and would be happy to have the tires stick out as much as an inch past the fender.


17x8 5x5 ( 0 offset) 4 1/2" backspace


do i need + or - offset? How does backspacing affect rub? - offset pushes the wheels out right? I think posters on the forum are mixed up between + and - because I keep on reading conflicting info.

Thanks very much guys.
