    backspacing relates to how far your tires stick out, as the number get's higher, the tires move in, and vice versa. example, 3.75'' backspacing will stick out further than 4.5'' backspacing.

    my guess is that you will rub due to the new parts? seems odd though.

    I think stock backspacing on the 2nd gen's is 5'', so you can order some wheel spacers or get new wheels with the proper backspacing. most people around here prefer spidertrax wheel spacers.

    On RCD's website they have a warning that says DO NOT USE WHEEL SPACERS, so I am pretty much Flucked and have to buy new wheels, just when i thought I was getting an awesome lift kit, now I am back at square one for a lift. FML

    Your stock wheels are 5.25 bs and 16x8. I'm not sure if a 8" wide wheel will work with a 12.5" wide tire? Go to bfg's web site and see what the recommended rim range is for the tire your looking at. As far as the spacers go, I think you'll be ok running some hub-centric spidertrax wheel spacers.
