    FIRST... what is the backspacing on a standard 15" rallie wheel?

    I've been looking for tires for my DD for awhile, its a cruiser, and I want to put some some bling in the 16-17-18" form factor /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Problem is most of the wheel's dont have the right backspacing... most are 4-4.5" when you get over 15". Plus the center openings usually aren't big enough for the front hubs /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    What can I do?

    I like these rims

    Standard is 4.5 I think. I went to 2.5 and cleared 33X12.50 without a lift.

    I would shy away from the 18" wheels. I was recently looking at rims and was thinking about 18's for my DD, and after talking to a guy at the wheel shop, tire selection is very limited. There are tires for days for 16" and 17" wheels though. Street tires anyhow.
