    i am about to buy an 80s CUCV truck and it currently has h2 wheels and tires. I plan on a 6" TC lift and runnin 39.5 Iroks on the H2s. Oh lots of trimming too. Question is will the tires rub the frame real bad with the H2s backspace? I thought wally had h2s on it so I figured someone would know here. ALso if not are spacers safe for on/off road? thanks

    It will rub.
    How much I don't know.

    I feel like spacers are just fine for on and off road use.
    Wally has had spacers on the rear for the last 8 years roughly and I think they had to put spacers on the front to clear the H2's as well.
