rims question
most people use a wheel spacer of about an inch or so when running larger tires, would buying an aftermarket wheel with a backspacing of 5 inches be the same as a wheel spacer? the stock wk wheels have a backspacing of 6.25 inches so thatd move the wheel 1.25 inches out right?

Re: rims question
Good question. I would love to know the same thing when you figure it out. I put a 2.25" lift with larger tires and I had to put a 5/16" spacer on the front so they don't rub on the upper control arm bolt. I know that isn't any help to you but I am at a lost with that as well.

Re: rims question

Re: rims question

Cool send a pick when you're done! By the way how much are they per wheel?
