The 15" wheels that I went with have a 3.75" backspacing. I'm not sure if that is exactly what you need, but that is the only backspacing that was available for the Dodge bolt pattern which is 5 on 5.586turned89 said:I have a 98 1500 with 3"pa body lift and 3"suspension, I want to change to 15" wheel and run 35's.My question is what backspacing do I need.I perfer the tire to be in as close as possible with no rub on the street lock to lock.
Yes, in a way the back spacing will keep your tires from rubbing. On our trucks we need less backspacing than the factory wheels have in order to run the bigger tires and keep them from rubbing on the track arms that make up the 4 link suspension. The wheel wells are plenty large enough to accommodate 35" tires so you don't have to worry about any rubbing there, just on the suspension components.4wdRam said:??? I actually like my tires to stick out. On my 96 they are about 3" out. Does back spacing help not rub?? And how is it measured? From where it bolts up to outside of rim is 6" on myne. Any way just curious.(not trying to change subject)
