Classic 5 Hole Black rim and backspacing

I just purchased a new 2012 jeep wrangler sport black in colour and i took the upgrade package on tires to 32".The tires and rims were not on the jeep so the dealer said he would send them out,i figured it was it was a good time to ask if they could swap the stock painted alluminum rims with the Mopar Wheel, 17"x8.5" Classic 5 Hole Black.

Now they have not come in yet and now ive been reading and i think i made a mistake as im confused with backspacing,i dont want my jeep to look like a mailtruck and i dont want to put on 35" tires.I will be putting bf.goodrich at on the rims.

Will they stick out a bit over the fenders too much or will they look like a mailtruck..I'm confused and this is all new to me i hope i made the rite decision.below is the info on the tires.

2007-2012 Jeep Wrangler JK & JK Unlimited

Backspacing of 4.7" allows upgrade to 35" tires without frame interference. Cast in A356/T6 Aluminum and finished in Bright Silver or Smooth Black Coating.
