Either BDS backspace info is wrong or that guy might be running 3/4" spacers on the fronts to push them out to 4.5" backspace.

very true, I am thinking BDS might not have their info right, or there is a range of backspace, 4.5 being ideal.

I just want a answer from BDS, or someone who has a BDS lift, on how close do you have to stay with 4.5, or is everyone using spacers to get back to the 4.5" backspacing
I have the Zone lift, which is BDS' sister company, and you can look in my sig to see what I'm running. 4.5" backspacing..
Tomorrow is Monday. Call 'em on the phone.
It could be that they never fitted 18's with their lift. They'll let you know what the deal is.

I've been emailing with BDS and they've got nothing. Engineers say that 4.5" backspacing is needed to clear the bosses on the cast knuckle. I asked for suggestions on rims they have used with their lifts and they suggested that I check out the "bad ass rides" section and see what other Colorado owners have used.

Well I've done that already and like I said in my previous post, can't find any 4.5" backspaced rims.

Obviously people are running something that works, but I am missing part of the puzzle somewhere

@kevbz Sorry you're having trouble finding what works and what doesn't. @yokev is right about clearing the spindle. From what I've seen the 4.5" backside seems to be more of a recommendation than a 100% necessary backspacing. For instance the local dealership put's 6" lifts on most of their Canyons. The specs recommend 4.5" for 18" wheels and 5" for 20" wheels. They've been using 5" with 18" wheels and 5.5" with 20's. So sadly it comes down to finding out what others are using with BDS kits. I know it's not the answer you want but it's how it is for now.

@CUSTOMWHEELS4U, speaking specifically about the fuel recoils, I only see it offered in 5.25 and 5.75 backspacing in the 6x120. If I see this rim on a BDS lift, will it have to be one of those?

Meaning is there other backspacing options other than what fuel has listed? If what you see, is whats available, then I've seen them work with this lift, assuming they are the 5.25 versions

My guess would obviously be the 5.25" but they might have a spacer on it. The local dealership we sell to usually uses Rough Country kits so they wouldn't have any info of any use either.
@Tilley has a BDS kit but he runs bigger wheels (20x10 and 22x12). He might be able to chime in about the kit though?

I'm thinking I would just get the wheels I want and if they don't fit buy spacers. Simple right? Good luck

Honestly, I don't pay any attention to backspacing when choosing my wheels... it's all about the offset. How/Why BDS makes the recommendations on backspacing is beyond me. If you're looking at the 18x9 +7 option, those wheels would sit about 3/4" inward more than my last set of wheels (which were a 20x10 -25). As you can see in this pic, there is plenty of room between the inner lip and spindle. Plenty of room to accommodate the 3/4" difference between these wheels, and the 18x9 +7 Recoil wheels

I've done just that. Bought them tonight after thinking the same thing.

I figured since I can't find a rim to meet BDS specs, and all the rims I see have a 5 to 5.50 BS,i roll the dice and see.
