    OK so i have the 4" RCD lift on my truck and i'm currently running 17x9 moto metals with a 4.53 backspacing with 285-70-17 BFG AT's. They work with no issue. I'm looking at getting 16x8 Procomp rock crawler series 52 steelies with 285-75-16 MT baja claws. On the RCD install sheet it says "with a maximum backspacing of 4.5". should i get the steel wheels with 2.5, 4, 4.25, or 4.5 backspacing?? will the tires stick out farther with 2.5 vs 4.5? thanks :)
