Wheel Spacing

Hello All,

Just purchased a 2" RE BB with OME shocks. Wanted to get new rims and tires as well and mount everything at the same time. Looking at Cragar Soft 8 rims 15x8 and Wrangler MT/Rs 32x11.50. The rim backspacing is 4.0, do i have to add any spacers or will i be ok. By the way i drive a 99 Sahara, searched the forum but really didn't find what i was looking for.

Thanks,
Ryan

The 4" backspacing on that rim with those tires will work nicely. No spacers will be needed.

i say off the top off my head you will do just fine-- if not there is a way to add washers to your steering stops to make sure you dont rub--
