Default 3.5" Backspace Wheel

I am going crazy trying to get a wheel I like in the size I need. The wheels I ordered from M/T are now delayed again until July.

So I found some I like the ATX wheel but it has a 3.5" back space. Has anybody tried a wheel with such a low back space. I will be running a 37X12.5 tire and have a leveling kit on the Hummer.

Any help would be appreciated.

your tires will stick out 1.5 inches more than stock which would look goofy IMO with a 12.5 wide tire.
also you will be eating up hubs.

if you want a wide stance get a 4.0 backspacing and a 13.5 wide tire.

agreed.
You want at least 13.5 with 37" tires. with wide offset I'd recommend getting lifetime warranty replacement hubs and you'll be fine. if you can't find the right offset wheel you could always get some 20 or 30mm spacers for all 4 wheels.

OK here I go again.

Its a real pain living over here in Germany sometimes.

So this is the 3rd wheel I have tried to order.

I just placed an order for the "Black Rhino Imperial" with a 5.5 BS. Figure its the same as the OEM so I should be good to go. If I need to I can always add a spacer.

Discover STT's sitting in the garage 37X12.5 since January. At least I could get them on post.

stock backspacing is 5.0, so those wheels will stick in half an inch. if it doesnt work out just add .5inch or 1inch spacers and youll be fine.

Here's the correct wheel specs on the stock 17" wheel:

Size: 17"x8.5"
Offset: 18mm (0.709") positive
Backspace: 5.563"


So using a 3.5" bs wheel is not the right setup. 35's will hit imo.

4.75bs with 37's hit the back of the front wheel well...until you turn the tbars up a little.

Thanx for the good info.

The wheels I ordered were once again canceled by the company, as they dont ship to APO address.

I feel your pain, Im in the same boat located @ APO AE 09112. I have been trying to get some NFAB nerf bars sent to me since Feb and they keep getting kicked back size issues.

Thanx, I will take a look and see if they have something I like.

Where are you, I'm in Mannheim.
