    I've been searching, but no luck. I've been talking about it forever, but I'm finally going to have my H1 rims recentered and actually put them on my truck. Which leads me to my question. I'm trying to figure out what backspacing I should go with to put the tire where I want it. I've got Bushwacker cut-out flares (mistake...but they're there) so I'd like my tires to stick out a little, but not too much as I don't want to get into too many issues with scrub radius.

    If ya'll get a chance, could anyone/everyone with 8" wide wheels (or especially recentered H1's) post up pics that show how much your tires stick out and put what backspacing you have. All my wheels in the past have been 10's so I'm having a hard time putting everything into perspective.

    PS Though it's not necessary, If you want to be very specific I have a Chevy SRW D60/14bff and 39.5 TSLs.
