Re: wheel questions

Hey Oz..

I'm NOT running the YJ's but I was surprised that the backspacing on the F-series trucks will clear the stock springs lock-to-lock at 3.75" (95.25mm)

Backspacing is measured by the outside of the inner edge of the wheel rim to the inner mounting surface of the wheel. My understanding is that the best Backspacing is 2"-2.75" (50.8-69.85mm)...
