    I'm gonna order a set of wheels for my rig. My K5 is stock at the present time, and I'm going to run 31x13.50 on 15x10's. What kind of backspacing do ya'll think I should use? Do you think the tires will hit my frame since I don't have any lift? I think I'll be alright with the normal backspacing but just wanted to see if ya'll knew of anything I might want to consider.

    3.5 to 3.75 is what I would recommend. 4 inches will rub on your tie rod ends when you turn. I have 3 5/8 inches on my truck and I think its perfect.
