general wheel questions
Some general wheel questions here that will really make me sound like a novice!! ;o)
First of all i have a 1988 4WD S-15 Jimmy and am getting to ready to get new wheels and tires for it after a 3" body lift and a 1.5 inch torsion/add a leaf raise. I'm kinda confused about the different measurements for wheels. I understand the bolt spacing measurement that parts easy but what i don't understand is the backspace and offset measurement and how you know what you need. I noticed that the most likely place for my soon to be new tires to rub will be the frame of the truck when turning sharply. So to me that means i need to have the tires away from the truck a little more. Please help me with all these terms and 1 more - I plan on getting 32" tires hopefully if they fit - does it matter if I get a 15X7 or will i need a 15X8 and how do i know?
