Getting MC 3.5" installed. Planning on 35s and the wheels I'm looking at come in two diff offsets and BS. Which would be better ??

1) 17x9" with -12 offset /BS of 4.53
2) 17x9" with -24 offset /BS of 4.06

Thoughts?? I know zero about this

For a 35x12.50 tire most people go with around 4.5 backspacing. Either would be fine however. What wheels are you looking at?

I forget, which shocks were you going with?

If the 6 pak, I'd go with the 4" backspacing. (I believe this is recommended by MC somewhere on their site if you dig). Mine are 4.25" (17x8.5 wheels) and just barely have the clearance at full flex and lock.

If one of the other shocks you should be good with 4.5, since there's not as much uptraval and you won't get as close to things.
