Joe or others with info...

Let's say I purchase and install a Daystar 1 3/4" lift. Now I want to get some bigger tires, let's say 35's. I want 16x8, 5 on 5, the only backspacing I have found is 4"...will that work? Next question...tires, can I get away with a 13.5" wide on an 8" rim or do I need to stick with the 12.5"? Any info would be appreciated. thanks for your time.

I have 35-12.50 x 17"s on our JK. I'll have to find out on back spacing on Tuesday when the Jeep gets back from running the Rubicon trail.

Meant to say late tuesday, not sure what day it is...too many 12 hour overtime days at the plant!

I thought about wheel spacers temporarily and keep my factory 17" for now to save a little cash-just not sure, I've read so many mixed emotions on the subject...Wonder what backspacing the factory rims have? Anyone know?

6.25" of back spacing with 50.8mm of offset is what I've read.

Yes. 4" will work. OR you could keep your stock wheels and use a 1.5" wheel spacer. These have become so popular, I usually keep 4 sets in stock....
