need back spacing help

there are so many options for rims these days im sorta lost.most shops suggest what they feel looks best and doesnt always fit my style.im on the fence with going 4" or 6" of lift.either way i really would like the tires sit almost flush with the fenders.maybe just outside the fenders but not to much. 17x8 w/4.5" backspacing seems to be ideal.the tires would be a 35x12.5 or a 37x12.5. were would be a good starting point for what im looking for?

A 17x9 with a 4.5" backspace will be damn near flush with the fenders

so 3.75-4" of backspacing would be ideal?

Re: need back spacing help

If you want them to stick out a little bit, you can do a 10" wide with 4.5" Back Space.
