    hey does wheel basckspacing and size affect alignment? meaning do all the wheels need to have the same backspacing or something like that to get them aligned? i think my alignment on my 83 K5 is messed up, b/c it likes to wear out tires. any help is appreciated. Oh yeah, i have 16x6 on the back, b/c i recently did a 14BFF swap, and i havnt gotten around to gettin new rims so i can put my mudders back on, and the front wheels are 15x8. thanks

    Both front wheels should have the same backspacing before the alignment is done.
