    15x10\'s with 7\" BS?

    Does anybody know of a place that has (or will make) some 15x10 steels with 7" backspacing? I have emailed quite a few places, but nobody ever replies to my emails. Pretty gay that the businesses are ignoring the consumers. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    If not 7" backspacing... then just ALOT of backspacing. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    There is your first problem...
    Most of these places are run by "old fashioned" guys that don't answer emails like they answer the phone (most arn't even good at answering the phone!).

    I don't know of any places but stay away from Stockton wheel.

    I had 5" on 16.5X10 and a hair more it would have rubbed for sure on the tie rod, I bet if it was a 15" it wouldn't have fit at all.

    I agree on calling the places. By the way, why would you want 7" of back spacing on a 15x10 rim. Why would you need the tires drawn in that far ??? I don't think they'd even work on our trucks. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Wouldn't it be PUSHED out that much? According to 4WPW backspacing is the measurement from the outside edge of the wheel to the mounting surface. Therefore, 7" backspacing would make it a REALLY deep dish wheel and would push the wheel out as opposed to bringing it in.

    In that case, 4WPW is wrong. Backspacing is by definition the measurement from the mounting surface to the inside edge of the rim.

    Interesting. That is what I had originally though until I called and the guy on the phone told me otherwise. Then when I went in just this weekend to pick up my winch the guy behind the counter confirmed that it was the measurement from the outside-in. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    [/ QUOTE ] That would be 3" of back spacing. 4WPW has it backassward !!! You messure from the back side of the rim, hence the name, BACK SPACING .
