    Whats a good backspacing to go with for trail use? It will be with 15x10 wheels with 35 inch tires on a Blazer with a six inch suspension lift. Thanks

    with 4.25" backspacing i had to grind the calipers and back plates on a 8 lug 10 bolt. they keep the track width pretty narrow and the tires havent hit a spring yet but it took a couple hours to do. If you just wanted to slap them on a 3.5" backspacing would prolly be good to go. They cleared the 14 ff with drum brakes.
