How much spacer do I need?

I found a good deal on a set of 35s on 17s that came off of a 6.0. My truck is a 99 and has the 16s on it. I got to the tire shop to have them put on to find that they wouldn't fit because of the back spacing. How much of a spacer do I need to make them work?

Thanks, the tire guy I took it to ordered 1/4" spacers and said he didn't want to use any wider than that. I was thinking to my self that probably wasn't going to work but I wasn't going to question the professional. Guess I'll go ahead and order some 2" spacers.

haha 1/4 spacers...why even bother with spacers at all if your gonna use those.

you have to use atleast 2 inch spacers to get the rims to sit right.
otherwise they will rub on the tie rods.
and its just dangerous
