Ok, I am currently running Zinik Z9 18" wheels and 215/40 tires. Offset is +42. I am currently running 15mm spacers out back and the tire comes perfectly out to the edge without rubbing.<p>Now the question. What size wheel/tire combo and backspacing could I run to fill up the wheel wells completely. I want to run the staggered look.<p>Let me know if you know how to figure this out.<p>Gary

Re: Got a backspacing/wheelsize question. Please help me out if you can. (yellow95)

Not as easy as 1-2-3. You have to consider how much of a lip you want to run. That will affect backspacing as well. Also, you have to consider caliper clearance as well in most vehicles. Best advice is to get the wheel well measured (some wheel shops do this for custom apps) and go from there.
