  • Backspacing question???

    ok backspacing issue here, to start off i have bushwacker flare (6in.), and had 15x10s, with 4in backspacing with 31s 10.50.... and everything was good besides the bubbling of the tire, and it was even flush with the flare....


    so i took my stock rims and had them powered coated, but there sitting in the flender to much,

    so another words the question is what backspacing do i need to have a 15x8, fit flush with the flare.....??????????

        I'd say you need 4" of BS. (sounds funny) If you're using the same tires, the width didn't change enough to notice when you put them on the stock rims. As long as the tire width didn't change, the amount of BS will remain the same.
        Hmm...and I thought I had noticed an increase in the amount of BS around here. Go figure.

                15x10

                well all the rims we have here at 4wd are 3.75 bs so Id say to clear a 6in flare u'd need some 15x10s with 3.75 bs. HOWEVER I would highly discourage this rim with those 10.5 tires being their only .5 inches wider than the rim Especially if ur taking that baby off road at all cause u run a higher risk of blowing a bead at aired down situations.

                  I'm pretty sure the correct answer is 2". I was originally thinking about the inner side of the tire because usually rim questions are about the tires rubbing the springs or control arm. To keep the outside in the same place, relative to the flares, you need to decrease the BS the same as the width difference of the tires. At least that's how it looks when I drew it on a post-it note, lol.

                    thanks for thinkin bout it, and i'm thinkin 2in too, but do u know even if i can't get a custom backspacing at 2in.??

                    and would it be alright or cause to much stress on the joints??

                    if not i guess i'll have to do a little trial and error

                          But I thought you wanted to use the stock rims?
                          I wouldn't run that much BS, but that's just me.

                            i had the stock rims powder coated but the back spacings screwed, thats why i'm trying to figure it out,

                            most likey i'll order some cragers as close as i can and just put a 1/4 or 1/2 spacer???

                            what yall think???

                              Ok just wanted to see what u guys thought of this

                              31 10.50s or 11.50, on cragar soft 8, in a 15x8 with 3.75 backspacing, would u think it'll clear the bushwacker flares???????

                              to clear up another post, the rims that are on there were like 5 1/2 to 6in backspacing thats why it's in the fender so much...
