New wheels and tires

Okay so I just purchased a new set of 35x12.50r17 Goodyear MT/R Kevlar tires and a set of 17" wheels but I noticed that the wheels have a BS of 4.75. Do you think they will rub bad or should it be fine since it's only .25" more than what's recommended.

how wide is the 17" wheel. It makes a difference. A 17X9 is probably fine while a 17X8 will cut it close. A 17X9 w/5 bs is the same as a 17X8.5 w/4.75 or 17X8 w/4.5 bs. The reason why is the 12.5 width of the tire overlaps the smaller width wheel more which in turns adds to the backspace of the overall tire.
