    stock should be 4.5"

    those wheels will stick out quite a bit...

    so the backspacing should be 4.5 and what about offset? so the smaller number backspacing the more the wheel will stick out?

    not sure about what offset you would need...

    with our trucks, backspace is what you need to clear calipers and keep the tires from rubbing, etc...

    i once found a graphic that explained offset and backspace on google... too lazy to look for it again...

    yeah i found where a site was saying like 3 3/8 bs my rims are wide deeper in the back than the front now, but back spacing is how deep the rim goes back behind the plate where it touches the axle
