Spacers for Rubicon Wheels

I just picked up a 2013 Overland with the hemi . I would like to ditch the 20s and pick up some Rubicon wheels and tires . Does anyone know the minimum wheel spacer size needed to clear the HD brakes?

I've read through several posts regarding the topic but can't seem to locate this info.

Thanks for the help !

Re: Spacers for Rubicon Wheels

So I just put Rubicon wheels on mine for the winter. I have the V6 so no HD brakes.

There is probably less than half an inch space between the caliper and the rim in all directions. This is really hard to explain in text but does the HD brakes require more circumference as well? Not just wider?

I am trying to figure out how to explain this lol the words are not coming to me.

So if brake would JUST fit on an 17" wheel and then same width same everything in an 18" and it would give it more space. But take that same brake and try to put it on a 16" rim and it would not have enough circumference to fit around the brake.

That's the direction I would be worried about, not just the way a spacer could help
