    I am looking at the new Mickey Thompson Classic II black wheels, it says the backspacing for the 15x8 is 3 5/16". Will these fit my 98 4x4? Backspacing still confuses me, will these stick out further or no? Btw i have SAW coilovers set at about 2.5" lift. I did use the search for this too and could't find what i was looking for, i could't find a thread talking about this amount of backspacing.
    Thanks!

    i don't recall Classic IIs having that much backspace in 15s, but yes, they will stick out significantly...

    there are a bunch of older 1 st gens running 15s near that backspace on TTORA... might want to search their galleries to get a better idea...

    Rims with tthat much backspacing will stick out a lot further than your stock rims. At least an inch wider, maybe more.

    Im running Mickey Thompson Classic II with that backspacing. I think stock backspacing is like 4.5 on my 02, so with the backspacing on the Classic II it definitely made them stick out more which is exactly what i wanted. not sure what the backspacing on a 98 but im sure its something similar. the smaller the backspacing number the more they will stick out compared to stock. i have had no probs with them, and im running them with my 2.5 Camburgs and Camburg UCA.
