any help here on rim size?

Looking to get some soft 8s and have some 37 12.50 17 tires and need the rims to fit these tires, (as I cannot afford different tires for 37s) any idea what I need here for the wheel specs?

Kind of a wide open question there, but I'll take a stab at it.

I'm gonna say, 17" diameter , ~8-9" width, 4.5" max backspacing (4" might work even better).

Wide open? How so? Just wondering what would work better? 17 x 8 or 17 x 9 and as far as the backspacing as long as its 4.5 or lower, but what would be too low? 4.0 work good with the aforementioned tires?
