Yes I'm positive. I'm pretty much the wheel, tire, and leveling guru on the forum. I deal with this on a daily basis. If you want more information check out the Guide to Leveling & Wheel and Tire Sizing linked in my signature. You probably won't doubt me after reading that

Okay for some reason this tire rim backspacing thing continues to cause me confusion and I do not want purchase the wrong rims as I make changes to my set up.

04 4wd leveling kit hemi is my set up...17x8.5 aluminum pacer rims.

My factory bolt pattern is 5-139, correct? factory backspacing is 4.5, correct?

going from a 8.5 to 9 rim does not effect anything mechanically (or rubbing fenders) as long as backspacing is consistent, correct?

Thanks, I do not why this causes me so much confusion but it does so I want to verify before purchasing new rims.

Your bolt pattern is 5 on 5.5 (139.7mm) do you're close. Your factory offset on a 17x8.5 wheel should be +19mm which is a 5.5" backspacing. Going with a wider rim with a consistent backspacing will push the wheel out further which does have the potential to give you rubbing issues depending on the tire sizing you're going with. Check out the Guide to Leveling & Wheel and Tire Sizing linked in my signature. The second post has a ton of information about wheel sizing and how offset and backspacing works with some diagrams and charts to help you out.

I assume you mean 305/50? Without looking I'm fairly confident they don't make a 40 series in the Trail Grapp. Even a 50 series is shorter than the stock 20" tire. If you want to beef it up I might suggest raising the torsion bars slightly and putting on a set of aggressive 305/55, 275/65, or even a 35x12.50. You can find info on how these sizes compare to the stock 20" tires in the first post of this thread.

On an 04 any of those will fit without any lift beyond a little bit from the torsion bars.

Newbie Here..... Upfront thanks to all of you for the info and time you have all put in to providing help. I am doing a 2/4 lowering on a 1999 Dodge Ram 2/4 STD and want to fill the wheel wells up with tire without scrubbing and rubbing. I a looking at either 17s or 18s x 9 inch with 4.5 offset but am unsure of the tire sizes or clearance issues? This is an econo build that I am doing for a baby brother - mainly paint, suspension, tires/wheels, exhaust, and minor engine upgrades. Any help that you can provide is much appreciated in advance!! I hope I can repay in the future as well.
