They're 10" wide rims instead of 8" wide rims. They have an additional 2" of outter lip. The backspacing is measured form the inside lip.

So having wheels with low backspacing puts the same amount of stress on your ball joints that spacers do, and it is just more reliable to run wheels with lower backspacing than to run spacers. correct?

For safety's sake, I would NEVER run spacers. I dunno, some people run em and haven't had a problem....that's your decision.
