Wheel question

Accidentally posted this in the registry by accident. But this should be the right place.

So I am definitely going to get a 2 or 3 inch lift soon. I want a wider stance and do not to use wheel spacers. I was looking at black rock wheels and they have a 17x8 with 0mm offset and 4.5 inches of backspacing. A friend of mine has the black rock 16x8 with -6mm offset and 4.25 inches of backspacing. How much of a difference is that? I like his look but since I just got new 245/65r17 I would like to use those but they don't offer that backspace/offset combination for 17 inch wheels. Let me know what you think

That doesn't account for the .25 inch difference in back spacing though, does it?

Point being there's minimal difference between the 2.
