    I have done a search- and keep coming up with the same questions I already have......

    does anyone know of a site that tells you "you need xxx backspacing" or xxx is too much etc... I need rims, but can't figure out what will fit

    BTW its an 86 K5, back to 1/2 ton

    thanks!

    If your going to 10 inch rims you would want 4 inch back space. With a 12.50 tire that will put the tread just outside the fender on the front.
    If your looking for 8 inch wide rims the factory offset if 3 5/8's. Anything between 3 and 3.5 will work fine.
