I'm running 17x9 w/4.5" Backspacing with a 3.5" RK Lift and 35x12.5x17's. You can see more pics of how it came out on page 2:

While technically it could be ticketable in CA with stock fenders, I think its the perfect stance! It does throw up a pretty big rooster in the rain.

ProComp Rock Cralwer 98's, very similar to the Soft8's:

They now have a flat black finish with even less backspacing. Mine are gloss Black, but if you never wash them they look flat

Here's another look (yes, that's a factory tire on the spare, MTR/K's with 25K miles on the ground):
