    I need a wheel that has more backspacing or is more than -6mm preferably - -10mm. I am trying to shed my spacers since i almost had near death experience when back wheel fell off while on HW. My current setup is MB Chaos 17" -6mm backspacing and 4.5 offset, I need to clear my aftermarket A arms and the wheels need to come OUT about one inch. Thanks for the help!

    I think you typed your numbers backwards... Isn't your backspacing 4.5 and your offset -6mm. not the other way around??

    And usually you go by backspacing.. Offset is the back side of the wheel away from the center point.. so if you have wider wheels i.e. 8 your 9s or offset needs to be greater.

    Go by backspacing. Look for 4.5 or 3.5 backspacing.

    And try actually asking a question all you did was say you need help..

    what do you need help with??

    spidertrax adapters, and offset is actually +25 so dicount tire tried to match stock specs but when i lifted truck i now need wheel to come out more, yes backspacing of 4.5 or 3.5 would be good, I believe toyota either torqued them down to much or not enough and we avoided a catstrophic wreck

    3.5" backspace on a 2nd gen will end up looking like a skateboard or a lowrider or one of them crazy Hawaiian trucks...

    most aftermarket upper control arms don't stick out more than stock, so not quite sure how you are not clearing your wheel/tire at 4.5" backspace since your stock backspace is around 5"

    at 3.5" backspace, you may need to run fiberglass fenders to keep the tires from stuffing into the stock fender lip...

    Ok looked up and they are 5'' BS and +25mm offset. I need a 1'' adapter or spacer to clear A arms now w current MB Chaos wheels. That would be about -25mm, so I probably need a wheel at 0mm offset or slightly in neg. so I can ditch the adapters in front.

    ok... in that case, yes, 4.5" or 4" backspace will work...

    even 4' on a 2nd gen with aggressive tread tires will stick out past the fenders...

    Im so confused reading this post.. I dont think you understand what offset and backspacing mean.. The only thing you need to be concerned about is the backspacing. Offset is totally unimportant.

    Correct me if Im wrong about anything?
    You're current wheels have 5" backspacing.
    You're using a 1" spacer?

    That's the equivalent of 4" of backspacing

    less backspacing = wheels stick farther away from vehicle
    More backspacing = wheels closer to vehicle.

    Thats all you need to know.

    If you have 4" right now see how much space is between your tire and Upper control arm (UCA)

    and buy a new wheel accordingly...

    and your fender flares and 3" lift don't really help anything with clearance..

    Although I am curious to what tires you're running are those 285s?

    I know that BS is most important, and I measured my MB Chaos wheels again and they have a 5.75'' BS, so I know now I'll be ok with a wheel that has 4.5 or 4.75'' BS. Already decided on 2 wheels. yes 285/70/17 BFG A/Ts, also I will have a set of Spidertrax adapters for sale soon!

    first choice
