Spindle Lift Advice?

So after a crap ton of researching hours a day and looking at every possible forum on here about suspension i think i am just going with Maxtrac spindles, but im looking for a way to keep my tires tucked in as much as possible. I still am confused about backspacing rims and offset. I have 16s factory rims but i see a couple people run factory 17s sport rims and get away with just a little tire sticking out. Can anyone provide me with information on what i need to do to prevent so much tire sticking out?

Also anyone running 305 mud grapplers on this setup? Thanks guys for putting up with all the questions

I dont run them, but the tires will stick out more with spindles no matter what you do I think. youd need to run some spacers in the back to make them all stick out / look the same too. I dont know if youd need spacers on stock rims with spindles tho.

personally I like that my tires stick out abit more.
