ideal wheel for the spindle lift..

hey guys, i plan on doing a spindle lift soon but i dont't know what wheel size i should get... i'm kinda confused. the only spindles that are available round here are the maxtrac so i was wondering what would be an ideal wheel size i should get to run with some 285/75/? ...

anyone know the guidelines when considering the backspacing and offset when running spindles.

i prefer not to cut any well trim or brackets... but i don't wanna rub either..

any help would be greatly appreciated.. tnx

the spindles will kick the front tires out a bit, i think it's about a inch that they get kicked out but i'm not sure.
not sure on the tire size either.

Typically, the manufacturer will provide some kind of wheel spec to go by. Call them or go to their website to find out what's needed before you end up with the wrong set of wheels.

Ok so back spacing = 4.5
What about offset? I heard a lot of people saying -12?
