18x9 wheel spacers.

Hey all. I'm just got my 18x9 wheels fitted for tires. I was going to run 275s in the back, but I got the option to go 285 free of charge so I did it. I've done a lot of searching and seen a lot of people discuss 18x10 spacers, but I'm curious what I could run with 18x9s in the rear. I have stock all suspension and want to go flush with my fender. Could I run a 1 inch or 1.5 inch spacer? I don't really ever intend on lowering because of the awful road conditions in my state.

You can put 1 1/2" on the rear. I have 10 1/2" wheels on my rear. Also 94-98 rear ends are 3/4" shorter (on each side) than 99-04s

Yes but the 99-04 rear fenders are wider too so take that into account. Just measure how much spacer you need from where you want it to be, not really too hard.

I just got my tires mounted the other day, and haven't put them on the car yet - but I'll definitely do that. I'm guessing I can just use a standard tape measure to estimate how far out I need to go?

Yeah you can. Generally a 1" spacer is going to put you somewhere in the ballpark of where you need to be but watch the backspacing.
