    Well the deeper the backspacing the bigger tires (wider) you can run

    -4.5" seems to be the norm :)

    I'm personally gonna try to go -5" cause I wanna run 295's if possible...plus I already have my cab mounts chopped :)

    Your backspacing will all depend on what size tire you are wanting to get. Ultimately you want as much backspace as possible without rubbing. That will reduce the strain on your suspension.

    The shallower the backspacing the wider you can go.
