Any problems w/ this size?

What's better, a 16 X 10 rim or a 17 X 9 rim. Both with 4.5 inch backspacing, and most likely going w/ a 315 tire

Or are these equal when it comes to clearence issues?

Not a lot of wheel for a 12.4" tire to hold onto if you go with the 10" wheel.... Other than that clearance will be the same for either. The 4.5" bs tells you that.

Well you will get better clearance with the 10 rim with 4.5 backspace then the 9" with 4.5 backspacing because the tire itself will be wider on the smaller wheel. The tire will ride 1/2" further past the wheel on each side on the 1" narrow wheel. But the 1/2" will not matter. The same tire will give the same clearance for a 10" wheel with 5" bs as a 9" wheel with 4.5" bs.

Other then that either will work
