Wheels anr rims qustion

So i was thinking of getting some wheel spacers to push my tires and rims out to give it a wider stance but for the same price i can get some new rims. Black AR with the red/blue stripe 15X10's with a negative offset of -38. In have 33X12.5 BF's on my stock ones right now(have now idea what they are-i think old enkeis)
Heres my question, any idea how far out they will be pushed? 1" or 2" or more?
Id like to give it the wider stance. The rims by local tire place is costing me $59/each..The spacers were $250 for the 1 1/2"..the choice was a no brainer..i have an all white jeep with a black top so i think it will look good with the black rims

I notice that the centercaps and lugnuts are chrome, I was wondering if anybody else had bought these and new were to get black centercaps and lugs(or am i not going to have luck with that?)

thanks, in advance

You'll have to compare the backspacing on your current rims with the backspacing of the new rims to figure out your net gain in width.

I'm totally with you, Black Rims on a White Jeep, NICE

I've seen the black center caps and lugs on ebay, do a search.

Good Luck!
