I've been on this subject for weeks now and here is what I have learned.Depending on size of tires and lift will dictate how much backspacing you can run, I ran in to this when ordering my wheels. I knew the ones I wanted when I panned everything then I opted for a leveling system instead of a 4.5" lift. When I went to order wheels and tires I found out the wheels I want only come in a 4.5" bs (-12 offset). Without trimming I would rub with 35's so I chose another wheel with a 5"bs(0 offset).
I believe your stock wheel is like mine and is an 8" wide wheel with likely a 6" backspacing. If I understand it correctly and you stayed with an 8" wheel but switched to a 5" bs then it would move the wheel and tire out 1". By going to a 9" wheel I believe that would add another 1" to the outside.
