16x8 wheels with 6" Fabtech lift.

Before I start, Ive already been searching as much as I can about this fitment with little results, so don't bash me too hard for asking for help with this one.

My current wheel set up is 16x8 4.25BS MB Razor's. I've recently purchased a 6" lift from Fabtech and buying a full set of 17" wheels w/ tires is pretty out of the question.

Is it possible for me to run 1.25 Spidertrax wheel spacers and keep my 16's or is the backspacing still going to keep me from running them?

Yeah I know, I think its pretty much just wishful thinking on my part as to making these wheels fit correctly.

Dishing out $1200 for new wheels and tires is not exactly high on my to do list if I don't have to ya know.

they will clear with spacers but i would recommend buying a new set of wheels when u got extra $$, use spacers as only a temporary fix

Spacers are not exactly my first choice, but for the time being until I get some more cash saved up it will have to do.

My only worry is getting the lift installed and not being able to get to wheels to fit properly even with spacers. Then I'm really SOL until I come up with some 17" wheels.

I do appreciate the advise very much, thank you.

Ive talked to a couple more members on here who swear that spidertrax 1.25 wheel spacers will correct the fitting issue and allow 16's to fit properly. My lift should be arriving sometime tomorrow, so I'm gonna spend the $100 and get the spacers. I figure its worth a shot, and if it doesn't work then I will be heading to lesschwab for new wheels and tires.
