I'm planning on purchasing 8" rims for my current 33" tires. What is the recommended back spacing? I would like the tires to stay under the stock flares.
You will have a hard time keeping the tires completely under the stock flares running 12.5 inch tires. As mentioned, you need 4 to 3.75 inches of back spacing to avoid rubbing things on the frame, etc. but the tires will stick out from the flare.
