backspacing

i dont know the backspacing of the wheels on my cherokee and i was wondering if there is a method of measuring it to figure it out i got them for free from my freinds jeep that he just bought so we dont know but i just got some 33 1250 procomps and idk if they are gonna rub because it doesnt look like there is that much

also is there a decent pair of spacers that go on before the wheel sombody post a link maybe

thanks

are your cherokees wheels stock? if so the BS is 5.25. if not then refer to this link

as far as spacers go you will want to look at spidertrax. 100$ per set (set=2) so 200$ total.

IMO, spacers are usually a waste of money. You can get cragar steelies from Summit for cheaper, and they look nice. The only downside to getting new wheels is if your tires are already mounted on the wheels that don't work, you have to get them mounted on the new wheels.

What wheels are they mounted on?

but what if you like the look of your tires? i kinda like my Moab's on my white XJ. if i want more backspacing, i'll need spacers because nobody makes Moab knockoffs with different backspacing.

Or the canyons that I am going to be using. If I have to much BS I will have to break down and buy spacers.
Before I got the canyons I was looking at a set of cragars to replace my stock steelies though since a set of 5 costs less than 4 spacers.

Fitch how do the moab's run on yours I believe they are the same size and BS as the canyons 15X8 5.5" BS. Any rubbing?

no rubbing with 245/70 r16 General Grabber AT2s with the 2" budget boost. i did mount the tires/wheels the night before the lift and i had a tad bit of rubbing at full lock. i actually already have the spacers, just haven't put them on yet. after i installed the lift/tires, i was pleased with how they line up.

here's what it looked like the night before the lift:





i'll probably slap the spacers on this winter to see how it'll look, but i'm pleased with how it looks now. besides, i was just going to install them for looks, not to fix rubbing
