    I am going to pick up my new 37" SSRs ans 16X8 wheels. How much backspace does everyone run?

    I did a search for you on backspacing- what I can find is that people run from 3 5/8 -4" some of the people running 4" are having issues with them hitting tie rods-- did you order them from a tire place? I would think they would know what you can and can't use?

    Thanks Brandy,
    I wanted you to know that before I posted I did do a search[​IMG]. I saw so much variation that I wanted to ask again to be sure. I ran 4.75" on my 16.5 wheels but there is not as much to choose with the 16s.

    I ran 4.25 on 16x10s but I dont think that will help you much.
