Question Show Me Your 17X9 Rims With 4.5 Backspacing

Like the title says, I want to see pictures of what a 9" wide rim looks like with a 4.5 Backspacing or -12 offset. I just recently purchased rims with these specs and want to see how far they stick out of the wheel well before I decide to put rubber on them or try to return them.

Thanks

These are the size you are looking to see BUT these are not factory fenders....these are narrow tube fenders so if you are running stockers which I was until a few weeks ago they will cover better than 3/4 of the rubber...

Thanks! I installed a Teraflex performance leveling kit, it is a spring kit and I think that it is advertized to bring it up 1.5" in front and 3/4" in the rear.
The bumper weighs in at around 70lbs and only dropped the front end 1/4".

How far does the tread of the tires stick out, from the stock fender flares - with the 17X9 and 4.5 back spacing?
