backspacing blues

hey guys i have my heart set on the procomp 7089 series but they only come in 4.5 bs. i know that this is the same as stock but after my bl im going to be running some 295/75/16s, i think ill have rubbing issues. can i use spacers? i want the tires to stick out a little not much, just to give it that beefy stance.

if you have to run that rim.....your best best are those like 1.5" spacer things. That bolt to your studs, then your wheel bolts to it. I don't like the idea. imo, I'd get a 15" rim, where those have more avalible backspacing options.

more like a 1" spacer, nothing more. 1.5" will make the backspacing 3" you dont want that
