Dick Cepek Torque Wheel and stock tires

I have narrowed it down to getting the wife a set of these rims for Christmas.

Dick Cepek 1068402 - Dick Cepek Torque Wheel for Vehicles with 5x5.5 Bolt Pattern - Quadratec

17x8.5 5on5.5...5 backspacing

For now I will be mounting the stock tires off of the 2010 JKU on them. I was wondering if this will work. Is the backspacing correct for getting larger tires sometime down the road? Have any of you ever done this, I was wondering if it looked OK or stupid.

She wants some new rims for it, but I just can't drop the money for new tires right now. I know getting them in 15 or 16 inch would be cheaper down the road but I am used to buying 17 inch tires because thats whats on my f150.

Any advice or a pic of one done this way would be appreciated.

No, looks like the link shows my TJ, sorry.

They will be going on the 2010 JKU with the stock tires that came on it.

I know cost is a factor, but take a look at the total cost. How much will it cost to re-mount and balance those tires? Take a look at some of the package deals for tires and 16" rims online. Some of the mounted and balanced deals are pretty good. Also factor in that you could probably get about $200 for the old tires on CL.

You might find that the total cost factor isn't that wide a spread after all.

Then you will need the 5X5 bolt pattern.

The torque wheels are not available in 15 and 16", or they weren't when I bought mine.

Those do not look like the stock tires though. They look good on that jeep.
I don't see them offered for a JKU in a 16.

Correct but they will fit the OEM tire with no issue. I have 285/70/17 Duratracs on mine which measure out at 32.75" tall and 10.4" wide under the weight of the Jeep @ 30PSI. That is very close in size to the OEM Sahara tire

When I regear and a few other thing over the next 2 years I'll put 35s on the wheels with no issue.
