Actually, the 17x9s would tuck in a little further than the 17x8s due to the greater backspace. However, it is generally considered that 4.5" backspacing is about perfect for a JK. Anything more than that, and you increase the chance of running issues when turning, depending on how wide of a tire you go with of course.
That being said, I do believe those are 17x9s in the pics I posted though. And I believe it was on 305/65/17 tires.
