Another wheel question.

Im looking to buy new Crager Soft 8,s. More than likely they will be 15x8. I plan on putting 32,s on them. Will a 4 inch back spacing be ok or should i go with 3.75? Also what sites do you recommend to purchase the wheels from?
Thanx

I have the soft 8's. I got mine from summitracing.com 38 a piece shipped... i have 33/11.50 on mine with 4" backspacing. I would say the 3.75 if you can get them from summit for the same price but if not go with the 4".

I have the stock 15x8 canyon wheels & understand the back-spacing is 4 1/2 inches, I read that Crager makes steel wheels in both 4, & 4 3/4 back-spacing. Is the 4 3/4 inch back-spacing to much for 31x10.50's ?
