Tire and rim

New jeep owner. My jeep is a stock unlimited wrangler with no lift planned.

I purchased 275/65/18 terra grapplers and going to a 18x9 fuel wheel

Few experienced opinions needed as its a costly investment and want to be sure

1. Should I got with 5" backspace +1 or 5.7 backspace +20 on the rim?

2. Should I exchange to a 285 to be wider or will there be noticeable difference from 275?

Thanks in advance

You definitely want 5 inches of BS, you would probably rub with 5.7 inches. As for tires, the first number in the metric sizing system is the width of the tire in millimeters. So a 285 is 10mm wider than a 275. Also, a 275/65-18 will be shorter and narrower than a 285/65-18. Personally, I'd go with the 285/65-18's as an absolute minimum.
