    Ok guys I need to narrow down a set of wheels and tires for my Suburban.

    What I know:
    - Tires will be 35/12.5 MT or AT
    - Rim diameter will be 16"-17"
    - Rim width will be 8"-9"

    What I don't know
    - For the life of me I can't remember what backspacing looks best on these trucks
    - Rim choice, seems like all the manufacturers arm making nothing but BroDozer wheels

    I like the American Racing AR172 Bajas. Ive even seen some Method street wheels or the Walker Evans 501 that look good.

    Would a 17x9 look too big with a 35" tire?

    Thanks for the help

    37 on 17/9. These are 4.5" back space (manufacturer listed it in mm) fit fine, no issues

    There are white spoke wheels.

    I run a 315/76-16 (34.5") on my F250 and it rides nice. Still find this size no problem. Good option if you have 16's or find a deal on them
