With stock size or 285 tires?

Looking at some new wheels, and need to know the backspace.

If I remember correctly the backspace for the factory 20in. wheel is right around 6in.

Stock 17" BS is 5.5", but wheels with 4.5" BS will allow you to run larger tires, including 285/70R17, without issues.

So if I read this right, 5" would be fine for a 285/60R18's?
