Re: backspace question

Crash69- most of the guys I know around here run 1.5"-2" bs on there skinnies. It doesn't seem to mater what it is either. Everything from 60's-70's muscle cars, 3rd/4th gen F bodies, tri 5's to vega's.

Re: backspace question

I run 15x5 welds with 3.5 bs and 205x75x15, with the skinnies b/s is not critical.But in my opion a 5 inch wheel is as skinny as I would run and they are borderline,I know there are millions out there 3.5's and 4's but I have seen some ugly things happen with skinnies on the front just be careful if your gonna drive it on the street.
