wheel spacing
 
I've got Black Pacer Daytona Wheels with LT235/75R15 goodyear extra grip workhorse tires. Is there a way to tell what size rim it is and what the spacing might be without taking the tire off? My lift is stock right now but plan on putting a Rubicon 4.5" extreme duty lift on my 95'. I believe that I'll want to widen my wheel base once I get the lift. Are these good rims or should I sell and get new?

I would have to think they are 4.5" of back spacing. They will work fine for what you want. You can toss a 33x12.50x15 on there with your lift and it would look really good

is there any way to measure the rim. There are no markings on them that I can tell

Here is one way to measure.
Coker Tire Resource - How do I measure my wheel's Backspace?

As for tire size to fit on them.. I am thinking its a 7" wide rim. So say a 10.50 wide tire.

Thanks, that helps.
Does anyone know anything about these rims or the company. Do any of you wheel with them?

minimal backspacing puts more stress on the wheel bearings. I've seen em fail in less than 2 years with stock size tires and wheel with little backspacing. the wheel bearings are probable the weakest link in the TJ's D30
