Am I doing something wrong? With the stock 17x8 +56 offset, I am getting a 6.7 backspace. I am looking at buying 17x9 steel with 4.25 backspace. I am trying to figure out the offset number, if I did the calculations right, I got a -19 mm offset which will stick out just over 3 inches. With the 17x9 4.25 backspace I am looking at putting on 265/65x17 tires which is about 3/4 in wider than the stock 245/70x17. I would like to get 1 in taller and 1 in wider tires with no lift if possible with no rubbing.
