Ford 8.8

I have tried searching with no luck. I am interested in running stock canyon rims on a ford 8.8 from an explorer. Does anyone know if this will work? Thanks in advance.

Is it advised to use spacers on the 8.8 to get the width equal or wider than the front?

Not in my opinion. I've swapped a number of 8.8's into YJs and never used wheel spacers. No one can tell, it's a moot point.

The width differences of a Ford 8.8 compared to the stock Dana 35 are marginal. 58.5" vs 60.5" width between wheel mounting points. You will be fine without spacers.
