Looking at getting new wheels, but they are only available in 5.5BS it looks like. Specs show 17x9" with +12mm offset. I plan on running a 35x12.5" wide tire on these. Is this going to be an issue and will I need spacers for daily driving?

Wheels with 5.2" backspacing will work so you are on within 1/4" of working for sure. It may come down to the specific tire.

That's the same as the AEV wheels. I run pintlers with a 35/12.50/17s on a 2.5 in lift with no issue. You will have to remove or cut to fit the front air dam.

I was thinking the AEV wheels were 5.2, which is why I thought 5.5 would need spacers. I'll have to look into it a little deeper. Thank you

You are correct I had misread your post. Yours may work. I seem to have plenty of room though. After work I will try to measure clearance if you would like.

I ended up going with a different set of wheels with 4.5 BS, so all is well! Thank you!
