They will stick out some but on these dodges if you go that route you can't do a very large tire without a lift. You guys in Cali sure like wheels to stick out. Every time I am in either state I am blow away at how many trucks have tires sticking way out. There are 100 in your state for every one I see here at least.

Yeah, the 17x9's with 4.5" backspacing will stick out but not extremely too far. I am running the exact same size rim with the exact same backspacing & a 34" x 11.5" tire.

My setup sticks out about 1 1/2" from the fender. Not too bad IMHO.

HUMP

i will seriously park out in the boonies where there is not a single car...and what makes me angry is theres always someone parked out there next to you when you go back...hopefully once IM up 7 inches higher in a month people wont be able to ding above the rocker panels..

1 thing to consider is that a wider tire is more rolling friction so you will lose some economy...but as far as how far they stick out..its maybe two or three more inches if your running a 12.5 inch wide tire on upgraded rims..on stockers its less..so its hardly as big a deal as it is made out to be
