Please help! Need wheel advice
I have a stock sahara that I am putting nitto trail grapplers on 295/70/17

I bought some rims for them, but i may have messed up. My wheels are 17x8.5 which is fine for the tire, but my backspacing may be off here. They are 25mm offset which is like 5.6 or 5.7 backspace. I am putting a 2 inch leveling kit on soon, but am driving to DC to buy the tires from someone. and need to be able to get back to Philly on a stock set up.

Is this even going to be possible without rubbing super super bad on the way home until I can get some spacers or am I overthinking this. most people on here say 4.5 backspace is best. The guy I got them from told me they would be fine, but after looking at forums, I'm worried I wont be able to make it home driving with them.

HELP i leave at 6 am to go get them.
