Last question, since I've been thinking about doing a small body lift, like a 1.25" or 1.5", would that work with the level to not rub? I'm gonna run up to a tire shop in awhile & have them measure the wheel.

Edit: Got one of them measured. It is indeed 4.5" backspacing. And of course I noticed today a stamp on the spoke that says "ET -12". Didn't know what ET meant which is why I didn't mention it.

So the breakdown: 18x9 Moto Metal 951 on 5x4.5 Jeep bolt pattern, 4.5" backspacing (-12mm offset), 35x12.5 tire. Now I'm confused on what options I have if I were to use 1" or 1.25" wheel adapters. The size would be perfect for a 12.5" tire minus the wheel adapter width. Guy at Discount Tire urged me not to use a wheel adapter as he said he personally had a wheel come off one.
