V-Tech Raptors, 33's and 2.5" lift

Hey guys. Selling our chrome Helo's that came on our Jeep and looking at a set of black V-Tech Raptors. Running 295/70/17 Terra Grapplers with a 2.5" TerraFlex lift and looking at 17x9 wheels. My question is, will the new wheels fit without rubbing and no spacers? I am ordering from discount tire direct and they are closed so I can't call then till Monday and ask and I wanted to order them tonight. Figured the quickest way to get an answer would be to ask you guys.

Thanks.

And if they won't fit anybody have any suggestions on black wheels?

If backspacing is 4.5" you will be fine.

Looks like B.S is 6 and offset is +25, which means nothing to me.

Go with the 17x9 -12mm offset (4.5" backspace) and they'll fit like a champ.

That would be a little tight for that tire size.
approx +19mm offset (5.75" Backspacing @ 9" Wheel width) would be the recommended minimum for that tire size
