Backspacing

What is the backspacing or offset on the stock 18s and what are most getting in aftermarket rims? I installed the Mopar rockrails and the tires really seem inadequate now. I'm thinking of throwing on the Spidertrax wheel spacers I had on my JK to see what they look like.
Thanks

Re: Backspacing

The 17's are +56 I believe, 18's are probably similar if not same. 0 offset is a popular aftermarket backspace. Mine are -6 and I like them a lot. I don't think JK spacers fit on the WK2, someone on another forum had to re-drill them to get them to work.

Thanks, the 18s are 56.4. I pulled one off. My old JK spacers will only work on a WK UP TO 2010. The WK2 has the same wheel studs as a 1/2 ton Dodge PU.
