will a 0 offset fit

just bought a 2012 liberty sport and want to put some new wheels and tires on it. pretty set on some 16x8's with 0 offset and backspacing is 4.5 with 235/70/16 tires. will i have any rubbing issues? don't want to add a lift just yet and don't want to have a new set of wheels and tires setting in the garage because of fitment problems. thanks for any input

I've been wondering the same thing. Bump for interest.

So I know I may sound a bit dopey, but can someone please explain to me what offset and back spacing is when it comes to tire fitment. Thanks and sorry to go a little off track.

A zero offset on an 8" rim should be 4" of backspace.

This should explain it

8 inch wide wheel is too wide for a 235-7016
stick with 7 inch
plus extra width and that backspacing would not be good unless lifted
