Offset and backspacing?

I picked up a set of 22x9.5 Dick Cepek Torque rims from a guy Saturday for dirt cheap.. (One of those deals you cant pass up)

Anyway, I was looking at the specs, and its 22x9.5 With B.S. 6.00" ET:+19mm. Wheel spacers are a must? or would 37x13.5's clear on 6" lift? Im just mainly worried about leaf spring rubbing.. But any other pointers would be appreciated.

You'll definitely need spacers. The backspacing on that is about 1" more than factory wheels, plus it's wider. You're going to rub like a beast.

Well im running Moto Metal 951s right now. Dont remember the BS or anything from them but ive got about 1.5-2.5 inches of clearance with 33x12.5x20s off my leafs at full turn... I'm not the smartest when it comes to understanding this back spacing/offset ****.

Well with the 6" lift you have a backspace of 4.5" with those 20" 951. So from where it sits now you it would bring it closer to the frame approx. 1.75"

And no worries on understanding it; I do this **** all day long.

So would a 2" wheel spacer make up for the backspace to run those 22x9.5s? Cause i wil have 13.5 wide tires on them.

99-04 need 4.25~4.5 inch backspace.
05 and up need the 6~6.5 inch backspace.

05+ backspacing depends on the wheel you're putting on. And factory backspacing is closer to a 5.5.
