I need to run this by the people who know - you guys.
I am going to buy (if the consensus comes back in my favor) these new wheels from Method Racing.
18 x 9 with a 4.75 back space (-12mm Offset). I want to wrap them in 285/60/18 Cooper Zeon LTZ tires.
I have read just about every thread on here regarding 285 tires and 4.5" back space. My issue is does anyone think that having a back space of 4.75 will cause me to curse too much in front of my kids. I know the new Cooper tires are about a 32" tall tire which isn't the problem. It is a 9" wide rim and the 285 width on a wheel that isn't 4.5" back space.......i know i will have a little trimming to do.
I have ordered 5100's for the front and plan on the 1.85 setting.
Does anyone think it will be a deal breaker.
(i really like the Cooper Zeon LTZ tires but they don't come in a 265 for an 18" rim and the 285's are really cheap right now)
Thanks in advance guys!
