    After searching the archives I am still confused on what wheels to get for my 40. I am looking for 8 inch black rims. Some people are using the 3.5 and some 3.75. I was leaning towards the Desert Rat wheel tire combo but was told that the back spacing was 3.75 and I might need to use spacers. I would rather not use spacers. So what is the correct back spacing?

    Thanks Mike El PasoTLCA 8009

    Stock is 3.5 BUT some 3.75's will work. For example, I ordered Steel Wheels from US Wheel with 3.75 BS and they were fine for my past 76 FJ40.
