15x7 with 3 3/8" or 5" BS

I need new Centerline Warriors up front and can't decide if I should get the 3 3/8" BS or go with the 5" and use a spacer. I have read that I need 4" BS with a 15x7, especially with drop spindles.

Any disadvantages to running spacers?

I just put 15 X 7 Cragar S/S in the front with 225/60R15 = NO ISSUES! The backspacing is 4 1/8 on the 7" wheels.

So do you think a 3.375" will work or will it be too close to the fender lip?

Might work until you hit a dip and turn at the same time. Might be better off with 5" and spacers but that may require longer wheel studs. Most tracks want to see studs out the end of the nut.

If your front end is dropped as much as mine, then yes 3/4" will probably hit the wheel wells while turning sharp and hitting a bump.

Thanks for the info. I will order 1 wheel from Summit and get an idea of how it will work before mounting. If it doesn't I will return it. I will probably have to run a 215 or 225
