Man I mounted a tire on my wheel and slid it in place to check to see how they will fit. The stick out pretty far! these wheels have a 3.5" BS. What do you guys think will I have problems with this setup? The stick out like 3.5"

SST Pros on Methods? Looks great man.

If you’re good with how far they stick out, go for it! Do you have laws (enforced) in your area about tires sticking past fenders?

You’ll get more mud/rocks kicked up from the front tires going along the sides to the back - so consider a protective film (especially for the hinges).

We have method racing mr312 17x9 wheels wrapped in nitto ridge grapplers 35x12.5R/17. The wheels are -12mm (4.5") backspacing on stock height Rubicon and fit perfect. Not to aggressive sticking out and they clear when the wheel is fully clocked left or right. So far no rubbing that I can see but I have not fork lifted it yet to max flex it out from all sides.

Going with Fuel Beast D564 17x9 5x127 bolt pattern with -12mm offset and 4.5” backspacing. Tires are Falken WildPeak A/T3W 35/12.50R17 121R. This will be for a JL 2 door Rubicon with RC budget spacer lift. Will this work? Thanks.

Yes, that should put them out almost 2.8" and leave you lots of room inside.
