Fuel wheels

Hi all, I'm about to purchase 17x9 fuel wheels with either 35" toyo open country m/t or duratracs, my question is I have a 2015 Sahara unlimited with a 2.5" AEV suspension lift, what size offset and backspacing do I need? Thank you

Backspace and off set are the same thing. You should be looking at a backspace in the range of 5" to 4.75" to fit under or almost fender flares. 4.5"+ of backspace will stick out past the fender flares if that is the look you are going for.

Are you sure 12mm not 22mm?

The factory rims have a 6.25" backspace.

(example of backspacing math 6.25" - 1.5" = 4.75" backspace)
6.25" - ?mm =___ " backspacing)

Wish I could be of more help.
