Yet another front wheel question
My setup: stock subframe, DSE control arms, factory disc spindles, Wilwood brakes with hubs. My question is regarding backspacing. Tires will be either 235/45R17 or 245/45R17 on Billet Specialties 17x8 Mag Legend Series wheels. Ideally an 8” wheel sets up at +6mm offset. This is about 4.75” backspace on the nose. My Wilwood setup pushes the track out 3/8 so my ideal backspace should be 5 1/8 +/- or about +15 offset. Does that sound right? I twist myself up going back and forth between offset and backspace. The wheel is available out to 5 3/4 so i was thinking 5 1/4 and a 1/8 spacer if necessary. Am i messing my math up?
