17x8 backspacing

After searching it seems most recomend 4.75 BS on front with disc. Torq thrust M and coys C5 only come 4.5. How much difference will it make and anyone with this BS on front what size tire are you running and any issues with rubbing?

It's only 1/4" so you should be able to make it work. Guys run as big as 245s up front so you can steal some of that 1/4" by dropping down to 235s. As always ride height and suspension condition all play a part in tire clearence. Bottom line there are people here running 4.5" backspace without issue. Try a test fit if possible.
