I have decied to run the 6.5 inch dick cepek lift on my 1995 gmc sierra 1500. I am going with 35inch tires. My question is what backspacing should I run on the rims? Can I stay with the stock backspacing, or do I need to go wider. I plan on going with 16inch rims, but maybe might go to 17's [img]images/graemlins/RockOn.gif[/img]

Re: Backspacing

you wount be able to find aftermarket rims that have stock backspacing. the closest you will find would be about 4 1/2" of so.

Re: Backspacing

well stock aluminum rims are 5.5" bs. you can go with a 3.75 or 3 5/8 and call it good. if you want them further in, go for 4" bs.
