Would the anticipated rubbing be the same?

    I currently have a set of wheels and am looking at buying a new set. Offset and backspacing are as follows:

    Wheel A (16x8):
    Offset: 0
    Backspacing:4 7/16"

    Wheel B (16x8):
    Offset: -11
    Backspacing: 4"

    When I sketch it out on paper, it seems that the rubbing would essentially be the same (minimal) between them.

    Can anyone confirm my theory?

    The second one will rub more. Folks have a lot harder time fitting 4.0" bs wheels than 4.5", because pushing the wheel further out makes the turning arc larger.

    I would've said the opposite. Pushing the wheel out further gets the tire away from the suspension. Its the reason people use wheel spacers to fit bigger tires, right? I could be wrong though, its happened before :rolleyes:

    it all depends on what size tire you're going to use and if you're lifted or not. stock sized tires, you should clear with either one.

    People use wheel spacers to push the tire just barely far enough from the UCA. Once you have done that, the further you push it out, the more rubbing you'll have on the fender wells.
    This^, but if you were to have rubbing with any particular size, the second one would be worse.
