Backspace help.
Hello guys, I'm new with the WK2, so lets see if you can help me out. I'm from Venezuela and i own a WK2 2012 laredo with hemi engine. i was doing some research because i want to lift it. So far i saw the dobinsons suspension system and i think to combine it with 275/70r17. My question is, how much backspace do i need to avoid rubbing with any suspension component, fender or body? I want to install Method Racing Wheels, the standard model.Thanks for your help guys. I know that my english sucks :lol:

Re: Backspace help.
I can't answer your question, sorry.

But if you read through this forum, there is one thing you'll learn ...

... your English is as good as most and better than many. :thumbsup:

Re: Backspace help.
I went with a 5.88" backspace with 17x8 rims and a 265/70R17 tire, but no lift on my 2013 wk2. I would imagine it being the same across the board. You'll just be able to have bigger tires with a lift. Hope this helps.
