Wheels+ spacer, made a bit of a hasty decision, some advice please.

I ordered 'type B' wheels for my 2nd gen last night from Wheelersoffroad. Type B have 4" BS so the description says that they will stick out a little, I also ordered 1.5" AP Hubcentric Wheel spacers. I wanted a wider looking stance but am afraid that I may have overdone it a bit. Will my wheels stick out 2"s each side now? What do you guys think?

you might rub even with just the wheel.

4.0 is slightly too little backspacing. PSU Taco 85 has 4.0 BS wheels and he had to cut a lot.

If you add the spacers on to those, you won't even be able to turn out of your driveway.

Dang, I might have to give both Wheelers and AP a call and switch back to the 4.5" Type A wheel and 1.25" spacer

Can't run the spacer with those either, you'll rub incredibly bad. I was saying that PSU Taco rubbed with the 4.0 bs even without a spacer.

If you want a wide stance you'll need to get 9" wide wheels with 4.5" BS, that about as wide as you can go on these trucks without a lot of cutting.
