Sanity Check - Rim Offset/Backspacing Before Order

Hey guys,

Iím having a bad day searching forums for this simple question, I donít know why...

Can someone please confirm Iím ok ordering a 17x9 rim with a -12 on my sport that will have a 2.5Ē lift? Iím going to have 35x12.5 17s mounted on them.

The alternative option is a +18 but wouldnít that get the rim too close underneath to the suspension especially at full steering lock?

Thanks!

-12mm (4.5 backspace) is good to go and very good for that tire size. I’m running that same backspacing.

I'm running 4.5 BS and -12mm offset as well on my 35's, it's a common setup for sure.
