another wheel fitment question

ok i know i need at least 4.5in backspacing but would this work?

17x9 wheel size
5x5 bolt pattern
-6mm offset
4.75 backspacing
Load lbs. 2200
Lifetime structural warranty

jeep has stage 3 poly 3in lift and 35x12.5x17 nitto trail grapplers. only reason im wanting to get rid of the factory wheels is because the tire places around here are frowning on the spacers i have with the stock wheels. discount mounted them but said they werent supposed too and firestone wont touch them and i need to get the tires balanced again and its a pain to get an hour away to discount again and then have to wait on thier slow asses.

i guess my question is really about the offset, not exactly sure how that works.

They should work without much issue. You might have a little rubbing at full, full, full lock on the frame rails, but it's doubtful.

Do it!

Generally a 35X12.5 tire works with a 0mm offset wheel in regards to inboard clearance and you'd have an additional 6mm inboard space added to that with a -6mm offset wheel. I don't know where the Nittos are running at in regards to true section width&diameter and if you have any suspension mods that may add interference but I think that you should be OK with a -6mm offset wheel.
