10" with 4" backspacing.
#1
hey guys. Would 15 x 10 inch wheels with 4" backspacing fit on our cars? The set I am looking at is 15 x 8.5 in front and 15 x 10 in the back. I know the 8.5's will fit because I had 14 8's in the front so half an inch is no big deal.

Had 15X10's on my old one. Just had to lift the rear because the tread sticks out 1 groove width and will hit the rear quarters.

They will stick way out. My 18X10s have approximately 5.75 backspacing and look about right.

+1 on Droptop's post. My 15x8 clear OK with 4.5 back spacing but, could use another .375-.500 back spacing to perfectly center the wheel. Chuck

my street wheels/tires in the rear are 17x11 with a 7BS so about 4 inches of offset and i use a 1/2 spacer to push it out and it fits find but its only a 26 inch tire.

my race slicks is a 15x10 with a 5.5BS with a 28x10.5-15 tire which is equal to a 275/60/15. it fits tight but i got a little bit more room to spare.

BUT I GOT MY LIPS ROLLED IN TO CLEAR!!!

i think if you don't got the lips rolled, then a 6 inch BS will work with a factory rear swaybar and have about .5 inch to spare from it.

with only a 4BS on a 10 wide wheel, it'll stick out about an inch or more.
