I know there has been several questions on what works and what doesn't. I am looking at the 17x9 American Eagle wheel modified by OMF. the wheel is a 17x9 with 4.625 Backspacing and a -8 offset. My truck is lifted with the rough country lift and in the future I plan on running some 35x12.50x17 Pro Comp Extreme AT's or the General Grabbers. I just want to make sure these will work before I shell out the clams to buy them. Thanks.

What year Titan?

17" are good for trucks that have the smaller rotors like my '04 and '05's.

I am sure on the 17" wheel as I am running 17's now...I know we have a couple of wheel gurus here and I am hoping they can help.

A 9" width rim with 4.625 Backspacing will have plenty of inner clearance for the RC UCA's and spindles with 35x12.50x17 tires. You might get some rubbing at the mudguard and pinch weld when turning though. If you do, it's easy to trim a little bit, (see the pinch weld mod link in my sig).

Idk about the RC lift for susceptibility to rubbing at the pinch weld, but I know that 35x12.5R17 BFG M/T KM's on a 9" width rim with 4.5" backspacing rubbed a little at the pinch weld on my friend '05 Off Road 4x4 with the PC stage 1 lift. A/T's will usually have a little more clearance because of smaller lugs at the edge between the sidewall and tread, and in some cases have a slightly smaller diameter than the M/T.

Btw, my 17's spokes rubbed on the brake's surface and the calipers and had to be ground down for them to go on. I've read about this happening with some positive offset 17's too, so it's the wheel's design that determines if this will happen.

Thanks for the help. Glad you chimed in since you seem to be the expert on this. I am running the 6" rough country lift if that makes a difference.
