    quick question about wheel fitment. Im looking to fit 18x9 wheels on my truck with the 5100, 885x lift combo with 275/70/18. i know that with 17's, im looking at a 4.5 backspace, is it the same for the 18x9? or do i need a different backspace for the 18" wheel?

    It'll be the same, unless you have aftermarket control arms (Total Chaos, Icon...) then you can usually get away with a higher backspacing such as 5" or 5 1/4".

    yeah, i will have LR uca's as well. Sorry just trying to get as much info as i can, i would hate to spend the money on wheels and tires and get the wrong back spacing and have it rub all to hell. thanks for the info though

    4.5" is still the best for that setup.
