I currently have a PRG mini Lift and will be lifting my truck with the PC 6" within a year or two. I am going to be buying tires and wheels in the next week and have a question.

I was thinking about going with the AR Mace 8 in 18x8.5 because they have the closest to stock BS I can find. My question is once I lift the truck will that BS still be ok? I have read on a few forums that a couple of lifts out there require a different backspacing to eliminate rubbing on the spindles.

Any help would be appreciated. BTW, what do all of you think of those wheels? I don't see too many people with those wheels.

Thanks.

With the 6" lift the back spacing you are looking at will be ok, a lot of people like to lower the offset with a lift to get the truck a little meaner look with a wider stance.

Alright, Thanks for the info.

I was doing some searching for this wheel on this forum and clubtitan and noticed a few people talking about how the Fuel 8 hit the brake caliper with this same BS and offset. I am a little concerned hearing that a wheel from the same manufacturer had that problem. I know they are different wheels but with this much money invested I just want to make sure. Can anyone out there verify or negate this? Again talking 18x8.5 here with the 5.375 BS.

Plus at the same time some many folks are putting Mojaves on their Titans with 4.5" BS and having no issues.

Please help or advise.

Thanks.

See if you can get a hold of the manufacture. Every wheel has a different x-factor (x-factor is basically the curve of the back of the spoke) The Fuel 8 might have a different x-factor as the Mace. Call and ask them what they recommend for BS. I would again shoot for a little lower offset, with your soon-to-be lift the truck will look better with a 4.5BS if they make it.
