All sounds good but usually a 5.5" b/s works best on a 9.5" wheel,me thinks you should be looking at a 5" b/s which would work better on that wheel.I am looking at a steel rally wheel that is 17x9 with 51/2 backspace. Planning on a 275/45/17 tire. All of this will be on the rear with a standard 12 bolt rearend. Anybody have experience with a 17x9?
IT depends on the exhaust, i had the same issue where the exhaust was don't before the tires & rims. While i was get the tires & rims put on, they said the rears are touching the exhaust so i crawled under the car and had some large wire/cable ties, then strapped a couple on some to put tension on the exhaust to help pull it away from the tire until my exhaust guy fixed... I think i drove it around like that for a month :thumbsup:.your right, I meant 40 series tire. The next thing I am thinking about is the tailpipe. I had a custom job done that exits between the rear spring and the quarter panel. I may need it bent a little to avoid the tire.
