Wheel spacers

Also, I'd only be running spacers for added turning radius due to rubbing. Is it possible to just run front spacers? Would that muck up the alignment?

EDIT: I had asked if anyone had any experience with using the Rough Country spacers, but once I stopped being lazy, the consensus was to stay away.
I'm currently looking at Synergy and Spidertrax, which seem to be a good enough deal.

I'm currently running 1" spacers to achieve 3 1/2" backspace so my tires won't rub at full lock, AND for Method beadlock wheels to clear my ORO modified tie rod. Adding spacers will affect scrub radius but it may not be a problem for you.

It only became an issue when I changed from 4 1/2" to 3 1/2" backspace. To solve the resulting vehicle control issues I introduced (wandering and a slight pull to left), I increased toe-in by 1/8").

When it comes to modifying a Jeep, my experience is that ALWAYS, one thing leads to another.
