Rockcrawler
16x8
4.5" BS
Spacers
285/75/16
2.5" lift
No aftermarket UCA

Only slight grinding on the break caliper to resolve the rubbing issue with the new rims. I love em! Cheap and look great!

Sweet ride you got there Rippin. Question, If you had gottin wheels with 4.0" back spacing would you have needed the spacers? Are your spacers 1/4"? Any alignment or balancing issues?
Thanks for the reply.

Thanks for the reply.
Thanks!! Might not have needed them if I went 4" BS but I remember it being hard to find the right rims that way. My spacers are 1/4". No issues.

Thanks Rippin! I'm not against running spacers. I've read that some guys have troble with tire and wheel balancing with spacers. Did you experiance any problems with balancing. What brand of spacers are you running.

I just looked at the wheels you have in 4in backspacing...how much did you pay? Do you think that I would have to grind with 4in?
