carli level kit on the way

Now to decide which wheels to get. I'm planning on running 35" toyo mt's on either 17 or 18". My question is can I run a wheel with 4.5" backspacing or do I need to go with a minimum of 5"

guess I'm old school but I don't like the look of big wheels. I prefer the look and ride of more side wall and less wheel.

Plus the money savings! It's a win/win/win situation!

Anyhow I would stick with a 5-5.5" backspace on an 8.5-9" wheel.

Thanks. That's what my gut keeps telling me but one particular wheel I like is only made in a 4.5bs so I was trying to get a second opinion.

Honestly, I go against my own rule. We recommend the exact wheels that George recommended above. I personally run 17x9 with 4.75" of backspacing on 35" tires and had to cut/pull back the inner fender liner a tad. You "can" fit it if that's the look you prefer but you're better off to stick to the specs SKYD RAM listed!
