TJ's - 4" backspacing, no spacers. any wheels.

will 4" be enough back spacing to not need a spacer??? i would preferably like to see a black 8" wide wheel with no 4" backspace.

It depends on the size tire you plan on running but for up to about a 12.50" wide tire 4" backspacing will work.



Sorry, best pic I've got.

i was kind of hoping to see more into the lip of the wheel, but that sort of works.

haha, that actually helps, but i was talking more on the outside of the wheel, i wanted to see the profile of the wheel and how far they stick out from the flares.

Below are pics with Cragar Soft 8 with 4BS. The tires are BFG 33x12.5! There are more assorted pics in the sig link. I prefer the Rubi flares. The stocks were too narrow and the Xenon too flexible. They would not stay flush to the jeep. Mud and all sorts of crap would get lodged in between.
