Getting new BFG's KO2's 185/70-17 and new steel rims for stock JK with no lift. Got a great deal on a set of the Unique 297 steel wheels from discount tire but they are 17" x 9" with 5" backspace and zero offset (I know everything says 4.5 backspace is ideal). My goal is to get as much tire I can and to NOT stick out from factory fenders. Anyone have experience with this rim/tire size? Discount tire is being a bit vague on it and I think the rims are discontinued and they found 5 at another store and are shipping them in. They didn't list the backspace on the DT site and I didn't know they were 5" till I researched it quite a bit. They are being shipped now. Thanks.
