17" wheel ideas for new tires on my FJ60 (1 Viewer)

Hi everyone, I picked up a set of 33/12.5x17r pro comp mud terrains for free(brand new, nice uncle), and I was wondering what type of wheels to go with. I have a 2 inch body lift on it now with stock suspension.

As always this needs to be done on a tight budget.

So what is my best bet for wheel width and back spacing?

Summit has some black steel 17x8 4 1/2 inch backspacing for $70 each which looked decent.

Also, I know some of the Lexus/Toyota suv's and tundras run 17" wheels stock, but not sure if I would want to go with them if they weren't much less than the ones from summit.

Anyways, as far as rubbing issues and turning radius goes what width/Backspacing should I look for?

Remember this is on a budget so pricey spacers should be out of the question.

Thanks for your help.

I tried Taco, Sequoia, Tundra and several aftermarket 17's on my FJ62. I had to run the 1.5" spacers with my 12.5" wide 17's to get off my leaf springs. I'm now running the spacers from Slee and the 17x8 steels from Summit.
