    Tomorrow Im off to get my rims. But what back spacing should I get? I Also read a lot of post's on wheel spacers.I understand it aligns rear with ft tires. But does the rear tires hit the wheel well under full stuff? These spacers are going on a 88 K5 6 lift w 37/12.50/15 and 14 bolt rear. I Also read the wright up that Steve did should I get 1.5 or 1.0 spacers?
    Some pics would help also.
    Thanks,
    Bo

    Bo where are you going to get your wheels at? Perfomance tire and wheel? I'm guessing you would seeing as they sell the spacers. And the spacer size should be 1.5 I believe.

    Getting wheels from Discount and spacers from Perfomance
    So 1.5 Spacer would be best what about wheel offset?

    I was just thinking about this today, glad I caught this article. Quick question, Would the spacers be the same width (1.5") on a 2wd? I know its not the right forum but scince you're on the topic I thought someone might know.
