Backspacing with 33x10.5x15???

I have been looking around and can not seem to find the info i need. Maybe I skipped over it but cant seem to find what i need. I went to summit racing and was going to purchase some new wheels. I am going to run the bfg at's 33x10.5x15 tires. The guy working told me i need atleast 6" of backspacing. Does this sound right i thought it would of been around 4" but yet again i dont know to much about it.

You were grossly misinformed. The factory backspacing is a hair over 4.5". 6" backspacing and you'll be all over the frame.
4" backspace will suite you well if you've got a lift.

Also, what wheels are you planning on running? I vaguely remember reading somewhere the summit steelies rub the caliper. If you're in the market for steelies, go with what works:

I would go 4" or less. Less backspacing pushed the tires out away from the frame.

Thanks for the help i knew he was wrong im glad i didnt purchase the wheels he told me i needed, and for the type of wheels i was looking at the cragar soft 8s http://www.summitracing.com/parts/CRR-3975860/ but you might have changed my mind with the wheelers. Thanks for the help and ideas

Yeah, I'd go with the wheelers wheels. I was cheap and chose to paint my stock wheels and run spidertraxx wheel adapters instead lol
