Backspacing Question

What backspacing and size are you guys running in order to use a 275/60R15 Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials? My car is not mini tubbed not even sure that I can get it under it with no problems. Also what backspacing and size are you running if you have front runners. Car is lowered some so that is what has me concerned about them fitting. Thanks. If you have pics please include.

Re: Backspacing Question

4-1/2" backspace is what I've been told.

NPD sells rallys that are 15X8 with 4-1/2" backspace.

Re: Backspacing Question

I agree with Doug. I have 15x8 Street Lites (4.5" bs) with 275/60/15 MT DR's and they fit great.

Re: Backspacing Question

This Fall while the Elky was getting painted, I threw the Welds and rubber onto the 68 Vert

215/65/15 and 275/60/15 BFG DRs on 15x8x4.5
Snug with one passenger in the front. Would rub around corners with a back passenger
