    I know this has been asked before, but I did a search for wheels/rims, and couldn't find any definate answers. I am going to be installing my D60 and 14 bolt FF soon. I'll be running an 8 inch lift with 38s. What wheel size/backspacing would everyone suggest? I know that if I keep a 15 inch wheel, I have to grind, and don't really want to do that. I've also heard, though, that the 15s hold the tires better, and that the larger diameter wheels have a tendency to push the tires off the rim in tight places. I also don't have any idea what backspacing to run compared to tire width. If someone has a list of what backspacing works best with what tire widths, that would be great too. I'm looking for any and all ideas, suggestions, criticisms etc. Thanks.

    Shouldn't it be called uncommon sense?
