Default 20" Wheel Backspacing

Does anybody know exactly what the backspacing is on the stock 20" wheels?

If you take a straight edge and lay across the back side of the wheel and measure from the back flage of the wheel to the straight edge and you will have your backspacing. But I want to say its around 5 inches of backspacing

Yeah, I haven't had time to take the wheel off and measure it. Wanted to order some new wheels and tires, so just checking to see if anybody knew right off hand. Wanting to run 35x12.5x18 and so I think I am going to need about 1" less of backspacing than I have now. So if 5", I need a wheel with about 4" of backspacing.

Yea i got 17x9s M/T classics on my truck and they are 4.5" cause they stock was 5.5" and I am running 33x12.50x17 Super Swamper SSR's and on the stock wheels the inside of the tire was tight on the upper control arm(about a 1/4 to a light 1/2" off).

Same here. Can't even fit my finger between the tire and spindle.
