Backspacing is the opposite of offset. It's how far the back portion of the wheel is from the cener line on the hub.

The stock size is 215/50/17, right?

If that's the case than a 245/45/17 would be fine as long as you're planning to run a wider wheel to match it. I wouldn't suggest anything narrower than a 8" wheel
