Smile backspacing help

I found a used set of 17" XDs for a great price. cept from what I have read on the forum here people say 4" backspacing.
The set i found is...
17x18
18mm offset
5.21 backspacing

Is that good or bad? im confused and tried reading on it but I got more confused.

I dont want the massive sticking out look like a lowrider, and i dont want them shrinking inside the jeep. I want a stable stance with a TANK look, and be a daily driver at highway speeds. if thats possible

please help
thanks

They will stick out about 1" more then the factory. Not a great choice for big tires but if you are going to stay close to stock size or a bit wider you will be fine. Should be a good fit for a 33x12.5 tire

Some build info here:
