Are these safe to run with wheels pacers because they are already backspaces? I run a zj btw and just put wheel spacers on and have been thinkin about the dc-2s. The spacers are 1.5" thick

That would put you at like 2 inches of backspacing, What are you running that you would want that little backspacing?

But anyway these wheels would be just a safe running spacers as stock wheels, but with 2 inches of backspace you'll be putting way more stress on the bearings

Lol 32 inch m/t with a verry aggressive tread. Don't have them yet but I will be ordering them in the next couple of weeks. Just trying to work things out. 2 inches is not what I expected lol I might drop the spacers XD. give em to a friend when I'm done with them. Key word is looking lol I haven't read up on them yet how much backspacin do they offer 3inches?

I used to run dc mud country's 33x13.5 and even on an 18 rim they rode Awsome smooth relatively quiet for a mud tire but then I went from 3" of lift to 7.5" and moved up to 38 Baja claws. But I had no complaints at all expect not to good in thick soft sand
