Question Blank Canvas New Tires and Wheel Combo

Alright, so, I got this truck and am looking for a good tire and wheel combo
It does front leveling spacers and some sort of lift in the rear. Ive got it narrowed down pretty well but want some opinions. Im open to any suggestions.

Tire#1 Cooper STT Pro 295/70/17

Tire#2 Nitto Ridge Grappler 305/70/17

Wheel #1 Ballistic Jester 17X9 -12mm offset machined

Wheel #2 Ion Alloy 187 17X9 -12mm offset machined

Wheel #3 Red dirt road thunder 17X9 -12mm offset machined


Is that the right backspacing I figured I need 4.5-5 inches of backspacing for 12-12.25 inch wide tires

Oh alright thanks. Does the 4.5 inches of back spacing sound about right for a 12.25 inch wide? They are about 2 inches wider than the tires that are on it now. And if backspacing is one inch less than stock tire that extra inch on either side of wheel would be taken care of. Also is -12 mm on a 9" wide 4.5 inches of backspacing? I read that it was because the 9 inches is bead to bead but backspacing is the whole width witch is about 10" and 5"-1/2" would be 4.5. Is that correct?

I've been having the Dick Cepek (DC2)s for about 8 years now and still think they look good. I'll search for a month for something I like and that one I keep going back to and looking at is the one I always get. Well here's my set upBlank Canvas New Tires and Wheel Combo-photo284.jpg 17" DC2s with 35/12.50 toyos

6" rough country and I swapped the rear shackles on the springs to give me a little lift. It's more level now cause I just put new struts on the front.

Cool. I may go that route eventually.
What backspacing is on them wheels?
Do you have a pic of how far they stick out of fender well? Or Atleast an idea of how far they stick out.
