Yes, I searched.
I am looking at these Method 703 wheels: 703 | Matte Black - https://www.methodracewheels.com/products/703-matte-black?variant=31922243207229

I've seen plenty of 17x8 0 offset, but nothing in 8.5. Should I worry about another .5" in wheel width? And then what size tire are people running on 8.5" wide wheels. I am hoping to stick with 275/70/17. It's a 2010 w/ sliders and Ironman 2.5" lift

Most are running 285/70r17. If you do an image search of the gx460 with the method nv wheels that’ll give you a good idea of how it will look. I believe the nv is also 0mm offset.

I'm running Black Rhino Bullhead 17x9, 0 offset. 265/70/17 BFG KO2. Looks just right and I did not have to remove liners, just massage them gently with a heat gun. The best part is that the new spare fits underneath, just barely but it does. Anything bigger will most likely not fit.

I have 701’s in that same size with 265/70/17 ko2’s. Here is the video I did on them and everything else you need to know on putting offroad shoes on your 460 : )

OK, this is all good info. So it sounds like I can run a 275/70/17, I just wont get a spare of that size to fit (stock hitch is currently installed) Thanks guys!

Probably not even if you removed stock hitch in that size in a KO2 or similar. Mine is 1cm from the sway bar with 265's (factory hitch).

Generally you want as narrow a width rim as possible. The reason is that when you air down on the trail, you'll be far less likely to blow a bead off your rim. The narrow rim will help keep the tire seated.
All racers and any serious off roader will run narrow rims. You'll never see a "real" off road vehicle with 9" or 10" wide wheels, even if they have 12" wide tires.
In short, the 8" wide wheels will work great!

I went 275/70R17's on my '19 and wish I had gone 285/70R17. Just my .02 but the 275's look a little small after the 2.5" lift.

Here's mine on 17x9 ET0 Black Rhino Bullheads with 275/70R17's
