17" jeep rubi wheels on wj

After recently purchasing some 17" jk rubi wheels and tires (and i cant find my wheel nut lock thing or i would just try to put them on )
I noticed there is very little backspacing ...
I am wondering if I need a 1" wheel spacer or something ???
I have claytons long arms front will it rub?


thanks in advance

No you don't need spacers. They are almost the same backspacing as the WJ wheels are.

You don't need them, but you will want them. Mine rub on the control arms when at almost full lock.
