1" spacer w/stock 18" Limited wheels?

Curious if anyone has used the spacers with 18" wheels, I see alot of talk about using the 1.25" larger spacers with 20" wheels and about whether or not you need to cut the studs down.

My new WK2 wont be here for more than a month so I cant pull a wheel off and measure the pocket depth on the limited/ORA1 wheels to measure if the 1" spacers will work.

Basically I like the look of pushing the wheels outward so it is more flush with the wheel well opening but I want to us the smallest spacing possible without chopping up the factory studs.

I dont know why Jeep spec'd out the factory backspacing at 56mm, it seems like they should have done something closer to 30mm and probably would also make for a stronger wheel, oh well. The only other idea is that they wanted to push the knuckles out as far as possible to be able to get as much articulation as they could with a full IFS setup.

Back to my original question, so if any of you use spaces with the factory 18" wheels let me know if you had any issues.
