What are the available backspace dimensions? 4.5" would be safe for 10.5" wide tires, you could actually go with a little more if desired to keep the wheels tucked in if you want.

Wayne Walker wheels? Never heard of them.

I run Walker Evans 15x8 wheels & they have 3.75" of BS... but then I run 35x12.50 tires so with your 10.5" wide tires you could go with more backspacing if it's available. What BS options are available on the exact wheel you're looking at?

spacing

3.75,4,4.25,4.50,4.75,5 if I were to change tire width to say a 12.50 how much does that change the spacing? from the 10.50 size ..

If you think you may go as wide as 12.5", I"d go with 4.25" of BS which will be fine with 10.5" wide tires too.

Cody from Walker Evans said they sell a ring that has the bolts resessed and valve stem protection.
