Thanks, I found out the same thing this morning. I decided to go have my tire rotated since it is free and while the wheels where off I asked the tech if he could find the back spacing for me and he said that it is 5 9/16". Look like I need to start looking for some new wheels. I was hoping to keep my wheels and also avoid the extra cost. Oh well, its only money.
