I like the Dick Cepeck Torque wheels. I can get 20x9 with 5.5 back spacing, 18x8.5 with 4.75 back spacing or 17x8.5 with 5" back spacing.
Which of these wheel sizes would work best for my truck with 35" tires, 2" level kit and pocket fender flares?
I think my stock 20x9 wheels have a back spacing of 5.25" If I buy new wheels do I want more back spacing or less? 5.5" or 4.75"?
Thanks guys for all the input.
when I do it ov er again next year I am doing 35x12.5 on 18x9's I find that looks best and makes it look like you have more tire, also It costs ALOT less than 20 rims and tires to fit.... 8.5 is getting to be a pretty narrow rim for a 12.5" tire, all tire manu's say you can do it but you will have more centre tire wear, if you cant go 9 than dont go any less than 8.5... and no idea about back spacing, I cant help you on tha one

GO WITH 35'S!!!!!!!!!!
