Default Need help....

Hi, I have a 2001 Dodge 1500 4WD ext cab short bed slt laramie....

I have 33x12.50x17 Dick Cepek Mud Countrys installed right now on what I believe are rims from the 3rd gen Rams.

The tires rub on my control arm when doing a full left turn.

I'm going to be getting some Bushwacker fender flares soon and I also want to get new wheels that don't rub but are also flush with the flares.

What backspacing/offset do I need?

I was looking at this wheel:

17x9 wheel size
5x5-1/2 bolt pattern
2.5" backspacing

There is no spec for offset listed. I'm assuming it's 0.
