Advice needed asap!!

Looking to order my set of wheels/tires tomorrow morning!

I am definitely getting the mud grapplers (35x12.5x18) and 99% sure on the xd series rockstars 18x9...My question is do I need wheel spacers? Im not really familiar with the required backspacing for this setup but from what I see the rockstars dont offer too many options in the backspacing dept. Does that mean every1 who has the rockstars has wheel spacers b/c of wheel's lack of backspacing options? If so, 1.5"? or 2"?

Thanks!!

You need a MINIMUM of 4.5" of backspacing- what do the ones you're looking at offer? That'd be a good start for info- Mark W.

They are all +0 offset which if my calculations are right thats 5" of backspacing.

Would a 1.5" wheels spacer on all 4 corners be the way to go?

They have 5" backspacing. You'll need a wheel spacer- 1" or 1.5" would be good- less is more.
On a side note, you and I have VERY different taste in wheels Mark W.
