Default Leveling and 20's with 35's

Ok after tons of research on different fourms I have decided to level my 2013 PW. I am going to install leveling coil spacers. Many people are running them without issue and this seems to be the most economical way to level the front end. My goal is to get rid of the dredded rake and have extra room for 35's. I do not plan on doing any hard core off roading so I think this should suffice. My question is what rim offset/backspacing should I use to run 35's and keep the wheels tucked in the wheel well? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thx, Dave

With the power wagon, you should have no problem fitting 35's!

I think the key is to find a wheel the same width as stock. I believe the stockers are 11.5" wide. From what most people look at with 35s they are 12.5" wide. That inch makes a big difference. If you don't get a wheel with a different offset, you can get new control arms from Thruen of Carli.

The stock wheel is 9" wide. If I am not mistake the backspace is about 5.25" so you would be looking for something in the 4" backspace range to avoid rubbing.

Eagle driver do you have any photos of your set up? Are you running Nitto Mud Terains or Trail Grappler Mt's? What rims are you running? Im looking at Fuel Mavericks 20x9 with +20 offset and Nitto Trail Grapplers.

35" BFG mud terrains on the above rims. Kore suspension, which would be close to your leveled powerwagon. 5.7" backspacing with 18mm offset, no rubing even with the swaybar disconnected.
