American Racing Torq Thrust Wheels

Anyone run American Racing Torq Thrust on a JK? I have an '08 Sahara that could use some new skins. While I'm at it, I'd like to downsize to 17 inch wheels. I like the tire options much better at 17. I don't do any wheeling so the change is essentially cosmetic. Any opinions?

Also, I want to make sure I understand backspacing/rubbing potential before I buy because I'd like to fatten up the tires too. The stock wheels have 6" BS and the wheels I'm considering only have 4" BS. So not only will the stance increase 2" from less BS, I will gain an additonal .5" from going from 7.5" width to an 8" inch width wheel. I think my jeep will look better with a wider stance. However, do I have to worry about rubbing if I go with a 33 x 11.5 tire even if the BS is 2" less than stock? I'd rather not lift because I realy don't do any off-roading.
