Wheel Question

Recommended Posts

I am looking at running a set of 305/70R16LT, Irok ND and was wondering what backspacing i would need on a rim so they wouldn't rub on the strut. I know Rich13 is running 3.75 but I can't find 16x8 with that bs.

 

Thanks.

3.75 is what I run. I would not go bigger as it will hit the strut.

would 2.5" of BS be too much? I don't want them to stick way out.

Here are some pictures of an R50 with 10.5" wide tires mounted on 7" rims with 4" back spacing.

305mm=12" width.12" tread on 8" rims with 2.5" BS is going to stick way the hell out there, about 3" farther. (it's all in the math ;) )
