Rize 8" backspacing question

I just installed my Rize 8 inch kit on my 06. I am running 24 inch wheels and 38x14 tires.

I am running into a problem where the tire is hitting on the 4 link bars when im turning. I think my backspacing on the wheels which are 24x10 is about 6.1 inches. Im thinking i need to add a spacer to the wheel to correct this. I checked the length of the stud that actually comes through the wheel and there is more than enough to add a half inch spacer and still have at least on inch of lug for the nut to secure to.

What does everyone think the optimal backspace for a rize lift would be.

I had read the other post you made. Did you add a coil spacer?
If so you will get more steering wheel pull to one side and rub. Also you have a big b.s. wheel and wide 38's. I would add steering stops. Just put some tack welds on the inside of your steering knuckle to axle tube. This will make sure that you don't rub and have that nasty rubber build up on those nice new RIZE 4-link bars.
