I tried a set of 15 x 8 inch ralleys last night w/ 4"s of backspacing and a 275/60/15 tire and I only had about 3/4" between the tire and the inner fender on the rear. How are guys going to 4.5" and 5" backspacing on rims? I ultimatley want 17's but there is no way a 17" w/5" backspacing will fit. Unless you think it is because the wide wall of the tire not fitting. How much over hang do 17" tires have on the rim? I have a huge swap meet this weekend that I can get rims at but need the right measurements.

Thanks, Erik
