    personal preferrence really, if your going with 16" rims, you can get ANY offset you want. If your going with 15" rims, just depends on how much front caliper grinding you want to do to fit the rims over the caliper. 3" backspacing will get you very little grinding if at all, less BS = no grinding, more BS = lots more grinding

    I like 4 1/8" on my 16s. That way my 17" wide tire barely sticks out past my Exo cage.
