Beadlock Wheel choices for JK UD60's?

Hello, I'm trying to decide on what wheels to run on my JK. I'll be swapping to some UD60's in the next few weeks so I'm trying to figure out what works well as far as backspace without spacers, etc. Any info and pictures is much appreciated.

Thank you!

Actually, I might recommend more back spacing with 68.5" on a JK. 4"-4.5" will bring the wheels in more. They're just harder to come by.
My methods are 4.5” if that helps the OP. Definitely helps the wear on the bearings snd scrub radius if it clears.

I’ve been very happy with them. My only complaint is that they were not made in the USA, but most wheels aren’t anymore

I would second what the other guys said above. I have the Machetes in 3.5 backspace. They work , but I could have definitely gotten away with a little more (4) backspace.

You might consider the Hutchinson Rock Monster beadlock wheels. Part #60669/WA-1174 is an 8x6.5 bolt pattern with 4.51” backspace. I’m currently running their 5.21” backspace wheel on 68.5” XD60s with 37s and plan to run the 4.51” backspace wheels when I migrate to 40s.

I am running the UD60s that is 69 inch wide on 40x13.5R17 Nittos with the KMC 17x9 with 3.5 back spacing and still rub a little. I had to cut front and rear fenders and extend out my steer stops to stop the 40s from hitting frame.
