18 inch wheels with 3.5 backspace?

Ok, some suspension changes are in the works and I need to get some wheels with 3.5 inch backspace. I am currently running 18 inch stock wheels with 35x12.5r18 Nitto Trail Grapplers. I wouldn't mind sticking with the 18's because I have quite a bit of life left in these, plus I have a friend who just moved up to 40's and can give me a great deal on some very lightly used 18 inch 37's.

Anybody know of any good offroad wheels available in 18 with 3.5 back space? I am not looking at bead locks right now simply because of the weight, but I know I can get them in the right backspacing....

None that I know of off hand except for beadlocks. You would need a 18x9 with around -40mm offset or a 18x9.5 with around a -44 offset. You likely need custom wheels or beadlocks to get that offset range.
