Rim size

So I'm thinking about 35" in my jeep and I was wondering what the difference would be between 17x8.5 and 17x9 inch rims. Yes I know the width of the rim is diffrent I mean besides the width. Thanks

I'll say it first.
.5 inches of width

But seriously, 35" is just the diameter of the tire. What about the width of the tire?
Also consider the wheel backspacing vs. the width you are planning to run.

Otherwise the 8.5 vs 9 really isn't much of a difference, and will very slightly change the perceived width of the tire when mounted.
