Need Help with Backspacing

putting on a 2.5 AEV lift and want to know if I need to get some spydertrax spacers... I have ordered 18x9 XD's with 35x12.5 nitto trail grapplers. The wheels have 5" backspacing. Does anyone currently run this set up? I don't want to have any rub whatsoever, even if its just light while backing up with the feel fully turned.

Thanks in advance for the help

You are going to rub your air dam but other than that you should be fine with 5.0 off backspacing near the suspension components. You never know until you've got them installed.

I run 37x12.50 with the AEV 4.5" on wheels that have just under 5" of backspacing and haven't had a problem with rubbing.

I'm going to play it as a wait and see if I need them. Easy enough I can throw them on myself if I end up needing them.
