Post Ouch! ... My rubber is hittin the shocks.

Wow, New springover and the problems begin.
The tires are hitting the shocks in front.
I'm running modified rear springs up front with missing link shackles, getting so much more flex. I guess I need some wheel spacers or new wheels. Right now I have stock rims with 235 75R 15 tires. I want to sit on 31x 11.50 for now, 8" wheel good for that? Any idea what car at the "Yard" I could Rape some wheels from that will have the bolt pattern and the 2"-2-3/4" backspacing?
I don't care what they look like.
Will anybody be upgrading and score me a deal on wheels or spacers?
Thanks
Dave

you will need to go with an aftermarket wheel in an 8" to get the proper backspacing...most stock rims arent going to be wide enough nor will they stick out like you need them too.
8" Black rockcrawlers....25 bucks a piece!

Check the backspacing on those rims for me and get back. Slicks should work great on the rocks !
I need some more foam if there is any more laying around where you work.
Call me about next weekend.
