new rims question

I am about to order a set of XD addicts and I currently have 285 70 17s with wheel spacers on the stock sport rims. Should I keep the wheel spacers or not with the new rims?


New wheels specs: 17x9, 4.5" backspacing, -12mm offset

Get rid of spacers cause your new wheels will fit just right with those specs.

I figured that was the case. I just like the look of the tire poking out a little further than normal

Keeping the spacers on with those new wheels will lead to a good deal of rubbing on the outer edge of the tire.

With the new wheels you will already be sticking out the fenders about 1-1.5"s so I think with the spidertraxx that would be overkill IMO. I have 18x9"s with 4.5 BS and a -12MM offset and I love the stance it has right now.

I hear ya.. Its easier to take them off if I dont like them rather than taking them off, and then putting them back on to see what they would look like. Thanks for the help!
