So I managed to pick up not one, but 2 sets of MOAB's. I had a friend of a friend that wanted 40 for his set. And another friend of a friend was just giving them away. I said yes to both in case one of them fell through, and instead I get both sets. My plan is to paint them black as I've been reading how lots of folks have done this and I really like how they look. So here's my question. Can someone explain the whole backspacing thing to me?
If you're willing to sell a set of those at a reasonable price to a fellow wk owner with a limited budget please let me know haha.

From what I have found, you can get .25", 1", 1.25", and 1.5" spacers. Our lug pattern is 5x5. Do a search on google or ebay and you will find them. If you really care about them being hub and wheel centric then 1.25" and 1.5" are your only options.
So I shot an email off to the spidertrax folks asking about using their 1.25" spacers on the WK and this is the response I just got. Hope it helps.
"The WHS-006 and WHS-010 are identical except for the thickness. Because of the stud length on the WK, the 1.25" space will be a little short and the lug studs can extend past the wheel mounting surface causing the wheel not to seat correctly. If you were to trim the studs to a height below the wheel mounting surface you would be able to use the 1.25" spacers."
