Tire and rim combos

I'm shopping for tire and rim combos and was wondering if these will fit my jeep.

17x9" Ballistic Jester-lug pattern 5x4.5" or 5x114.3 avail offsets of 0,12
17x9" Black Rhino sidewinder w/same lug pattern offset -12mm
Nitto Trail Grappler 255/75 R17 tires

Don't know if they'll rub or not. I do have a 2" body lift (not sure if it helps). Pretty sure the lug patterns right but on some rim and tire websites say they won't fit my make and model jeep??


97' Wrangler TJ
4 Banger
15" American Racing OutlawII
w/29" X 9.5" Mud Brutes

Going with 17" wheels & 255's (32"), you'll lose some sidewall height. Not a good thing if off-roadin' with aired down tires.
But they should fit without rubbing, since ya have the 2" lift.
Just be sure to have something like 4.5" or less backspacing (I'm not sure how offset compares to backspacing, if at all)

Also, going with 255's, you may want to consider upgrading the D35 if ya do off-road much.

'04 TJ Unlimited (The Original Unlimited!!)
2.25"BB, 32" M/T's & Super Swampers for off-road
Where we're goin', we don't need no stinkin' roads!!
