17x9 0 offset 5" backspace with 285s

Hooray! Another backspacing question.

I've exhausted the search button and read every wheel thread/backspace story I can find. 4.5" backspacing seems to be the popular way to go for clearance and I've found accounts that a 5" backspacing with 285s rubbed the STOCK UCA. However, I haven't found any concrete examples with an aftermarket UCA and if that changes the scenario.

I'm looking for a simple yes or no if the following setup will work without UCA rubbing (I already know of the body mount/fender rub potential):

-17x9 Konig Six Shooter
-0 offset
-5" backspacing
-285 tires
-Light racing UCA

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Did you ever get these wheels or an answer to this question?
I'm in the same dilemma except I'll be using 265 tires.... Is the offset/backspacing with a 17x9 wheel ok for a 4th gen 2WD 4runner?

Thanks

I actually ended up going with the 17X8 after talking with Dustin @ FN Wheels a couple times. I'd suggest giving him a call as their customer service is impeccable. The 17X9 wheel should work just fine but I went with the 17X8 so I'd have a bit more protection when off road and I'd be less prone to popping a bead when aired down.

Check out my build if you want to see what the wheels look like on the 4Runner as there are VERY few folks running these (that I'm aware of).

Thanks! If you end up going with these wheels - please post up some pictures. Not sure why they aren't more popular especially given the weight savings. If you want any other pics just let me know.
