    I'm trying to fit a set of michelin XL's on the buggy and I can get a set of 16" silverado stockers for free but the back spacing on thse from what I remember is that it's huge.
    Could I basicly run a set of spacers all around to be back where I am now or would I be better off spending the money and get the right backspacing on a new set of rims?

    The ones on our '94 Sub are something like 5.5 inches. It might have even been a little more than that, as it's been a while since I measured and the numbers are fuzzy now... :yikes: But yes, it's quite a bit more than on the straight axle trucks.
