    Okay Im looking at some method racing wheels. This one
    http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Whee...lse&filterNew=All&filterWeight=All&sort=Brand
    It says a back spacing of 4.72" and 0 offset. Will this fit? Just so I understand it better this will stick out further than say a 5" backspacing? I will be running 265/70's but I want to upgrade later to 285/75's will it work for both tires or am I going to rub? Also anyone with these rims know how big the wholes are for the lug nuts? Will the standard acorn style work or do I need the thinner splined ones? Thanks

    I have stock wheels.

    However i have been researching a lot and anything 5.5 bs or less should work. The zero offset/4.72 bs would be fine and sick out an inch and a half or so farther than stock. I am interested in these wheels in a 16.

    I had 4.75" BS 0 OS KMCs and they did not clear the calipers.

    I also have methods, the standard acorn style works.

    but if you run this wheel with a spacer you will more than likely have to trim.

    16s or 17s?

    What part of the caliper was to close? The spokes of the wheel rubbed or the inside of the wheel rubbed?

    Well I guess its back to the drawing board. Any idea how much it might cost to have rim made to my spec?

    Shouldn't cost any extra. I got my methods made to spec. Just call a method dealer and they will contact method and have them cut to spec for you. I have 4.5BS -12 OS 6 on 5.5 that I had cut direct from method.
