Wheel Spacers??

got my new tires on today before i had wheels that had 4.5" backspace now i went back to stock wheels but stayed with a 35" tire and have some rubbing when I turn sharp forward and reverse. I know I need spacing so any suggestions I am leaning toward Poly but still not decided.

Mine were not torqued properly. Front driver's side came detached doing 80mph on the freeway.

I have the Teraflex spacers, and haven't had any problems. Used Red threadlocker, and torqued to spec. Recheck every 5k miles or so when i rotate tires.

I DON"T GET DRUNK........I GET AWESOME!
