Backspacing Measurement

Going to run some beat up 36's for the summer and am trying to figure out if I will need spacers. Attached below is a link to the wheel I am mounting on the 36" super swampers. Trying to avoid rubbing (fenders are already trimmed, pinch seam will also be) I have no lift in. Do you think that these will need to be accompanied by some spacers?

-12 = 4.5" of back spacing on a 9" wheel.

You need 5 on 5 bolt pattern if it is a JK with stock axles.

Without any lift you'll probably still need wheel spacers, but try it and see.

Was hoping nobody would notice the bolt pattern because I couldn't find the 5x5 on amazon but I got the 5x5 pattern thank you, nothing gets past RCO eh? Thank you for the input I'll start spacer shopping, what is the smallest you would recommend? Trying to make sure I don't put too much stress on whatever starts breaking when you put on big tires and move them out wider

Ha ha! Just wanted to make sure you knew.

I'd do a 1.5" spacer from Spidertrax. They are the most common and have the best track record.

X2. Any thinner and you'll have issues with the factory lug studs sticking through the spacer. Then you'll have to trim the pilot off the studs if you want the wheels to mount up. (Ask me how I know.)

Not sure I understand, the lug nuts can't be to long with spacers installed? I plan on running these until I get the spacers, shouldn't be an issue besides some rubbing on tight turns right.
