Re: rim offsets
a 4.75" backspaced wheel would put the tire further into the wheel wells than the 4" backspaced wheel. it'll help your clearance between the tire and the fender, but you could start hitting the control arms with a tall tire, somebody with that suspension setup would have to tell you exactly when you'll start having problems. In my opinion, it's better to hit the control arms (radius arms in my truck) than the fenders, and not having the tires way out there will keep the wear and tear on your drivetrain to a minimum. It'll also steer better compared to having less backspacing with the tires sticking way out. How much rubber are you talking about exactly?
