I need some consensus on back spacing
While rethinking the whole wheel situation, since the Boyd Coddington's I received were defective (and sent back), I've come to the conclusion I want to stay with Rallys. But...mine are 15x7's all around and I'm going to buy 15x8's for all four corners.
So, I'm trying to figure out back spacing for 15x8's. I can get them with 4", 4.5" & 5" in the 15x8s. I know that with the 17"x8 wheels the BS for front was 4.75, ideally.....and 5.5" for the rear using 17x9.5. But these will be 15x8 and the dynamics change.
I've looked at the entire sticky thread w/pics several times. It appears the few members who run 15x8's use 4.5 bs in a few cases, but some look like the tires stick out too far from the car. I guess I'm looking for 4.5" or 5"...or would 4.75 be ideal? I have a 69' w/disc fronts and drum rears...and want to run 235/255 combo. What back spacing would you suggest for front & back for 15x8's all around?
