Wheel Back Spacing Question?
« on: November 20, 2010, 09:57:50 pm »
Alright everyone im thinking about getting a set of Diamond Racing wheels in 15x8's, and they have a back spacing option i can get em anywhere from 1" to 5 1/2" backspaci ng.  I was wondering if i would have any clearance problems, cause i want the biggest lip as i can get w/o having any issues with clearance .
Thanks,
Chance

This is probably a better question for H-T seeing that no one on here has Diamond Racing wheels. There are tons of people on there with them.

For an 8" wide wheel you want +24 offset to get the same backspaci ng as oem.

That would be about 5.5" according to that chart.
