Spacers and rubbing question
 
I have a 2012 ram 1500 4x4 w/ 6" bds lift and 37" x 12.5 tires. I want was thinking about getting wheel spacers to flush my tires with my bw pocket fender flares. Has anyone done this? How far can I go out without rubbing/ mild rubbing?

What wheels do you have on it now? Stock or aftermarket? Specs?

Procomp

20x9 wheel size
5x5.5 bolt pattern
0mm offset
5" backspacing

So I'm assuming you're sticking out about 1.5" past the fender line. Bushwacker pocket flares extend 2.5" so you will need a 1" spacer to sit flush or a 1.5" spacer to stick out a half inch (which is what would look better IMO). You should be able to do that with your 6" lift no problem... If there is any rubbing it would be at the back of the inner fender liner or the front plastic valance. Both can be easily fixed with a bit of trimming.

I have a similar question... I just bought a set of 325/60/20 Goodyear Duratracs to run in the winter on my stock 20x9 rims. I was wondering what size of spacer I would need to bring them out flush or a little past my Bushwacker pocket flares... The whole backspacing/offset thing messes me up for some reason! I know that with the stock rims and tires they were flush with the fenders.

You'll need 1" or 1.5" spacers to be fairly flush with your pocket flares. 1" will be slightly tucked under while 1.5" will be slightly past.

Right on, thanks! I want to order them so that they arrive before the snow flies!
