Really cool area you got in your back yard. Would love to be able to drive around the block and hit the mountains.

Thanks guys. Oducks that would be awesome dude!

So I know there are hundreds of wheel questions on here but I have kinda a unique question that I'll pose here first. Hopefully I don't have to start another thread to get an answer... Anyways the question is, what kind of off set and back spacing am I looking for if I want a rim that is similar to my 1in wheel spacers and stock ronin II rim set up? I want to get rid of the spacers but really want to get the tires as close to the same location as possible. (they don't rub at all and no trimming needed). Any help would be great!!

I've also heard it affectionately referred to as the chickenhawk edition.

I think your factory wheels have a 50.8mm offset (verify that first) which is exactly 2 inches. On a 7.5" wide wheel that works out to 5.75" of back spacing. So for a wheel to be the same with your 1" spacers you need 4.75" of backspacing and if sticking with a 7.5 wide wheels you need a 1" offset or approximately 25mm. Remember offset changes with the width of the wheels backspacing does not.
