probably ben asked a billion times, but i cant find a solid answer, with the 4 1/2" back spacing you dont need wheel spacers right?

Correct - if you get around 4.5 or 4 inch BS - then no spacers are needed for up to a 35x12.5 or a 37x about the same...

Would a 35x12.50R17 work on a wheel with around 4.75bs?

I have the same wheels with 4.5" backspacing and they fit perfect. Go for it.
