35" with a TF leveling kit ??

Trying to determine weather or not I"ll need to keep my Spidertrax. Have purchased a set of 35" Toyo MT"s and am waiting on 17x9 Mickey Thompson Classic II"s. The wheels that are coming off have approx 6-6.25 backspace where as the Thompson's are either 4.5 or 4.75. There's a lift in the plan (probably a 3.5 AEV) but most likely not for another year or two. So..for dd and mostly on pavement could I nix the spacers with this new set up?

Yes but you are going to have to trim the pitch seam. Flat or trim flares and ditch the air dam if still on the jeep.
Stay connected and on road you should be fine.

After double checking the spec's on the Classic II's, the back space is listed at 4.5 and so I'm thinking I should be ok running without spacers. I haven't had any problem's with them just prefer not using them if not necessary. Plus the bigger tires will be thowing rocks/mud bad enough as is without the extra help.

You don't want to run spacers and wheels with that or less BS'ing. Just imagine the stress put on the axle/ball joints/bearings. It's not so much the width anyways, it's going to be the height.
