    Hey guys I have a icon lift at 2.75in and a spc uca. Just got some new wheels 16x8 0 offset. And 285/75/16 Patagonia MTs. Will I rub on the frame rail? Should I get spidertrax wheel spacers?

    You’ll likely rub. You can either get different wheels with less backspacing, you’re at 4.5 now, shoot for 4 or less, the lower you go the more you’ll poke out. You likely won’t have to worry about rubbing on the fender with your lift, but you may rub on the pinch weld, that’s an easy fix with a hammer though, or adjusting castor.
    Spacers will also get you off the frame.

    I personally prefer to have the wheels handle that task.

    ps. I am FAR! from an expert here and just going off what I’ve read, I haven’t run that set up. Hopefully someone who has will chime in and show that I’m wrong and you won’t have any issues!
