Sorry, Another wheel/tire fitment question

I have a 2006 WK with 17x8.5 AMP Bitterroot wheels. Everything i see says the backspacing is 4.53" which makes the offset -5.6mm on the 8.5" wheel.

Will a 285/70/17 tire fit with my Daystar BB lift? I know i will probly need to do the pinch mod but will i have to trim the UCA bolt? If my math is right, then they should fit without needing spacers.

Thanks in advance!

Thats a good bit less offset.

I have 5.39" backspacing on a 9" (+9.9 offset) wide wheel with 255/70r18s no trouble with the bolt at all. You should .86" have more space.

New vs stock
