So that wheel has 4" backspacing if my math and what I just read is right that's a perfect wheel

Which one has 4" back spacing? The one on the link or the 15x10 that I mentioned?

Ok. I get it now. So I could get either wheel and have the same back spacing on both? Which would be 4"??

I have 15x10 wheels with 4" back spacing and I like the way it looks that's why I wanted the 15x10

Ok. So -38mm is pretty much 1.5 inches. So half of the 10 inch wheel is 5 inches so it's got 3.5 inch back spacing? Is that right?

You measure the wheel from lip to lip (total width) 11" half of that is 5.5" minus the 1.5" equals 4"

Well everyone learns something new each day! Now it's time to save... Wait, I gotta get a job first.. Then I will start saving!

One last question... The 15x8 with +6 offset has 4.25 back spacing. Would that make it stick out farther or be tucked in more than a wheel 4 back spacing

last week I tried sanding my tailgate and found the rust was deeper than that so I took it off and glass beeded it creating a nice hole. Today I bondoed it, then im goin to paint it with some bedliner. I took a pic of the rust before I got to sanding it.

Tucked into the wheel well more with a positive offset.

Talking Coils

Replaced my old rough country front coils with new skyjacker coils, painted the fenders, and put the winch back on. Rides great with the new coils and now no sagging with the winch on!

Moved CB overhead

Had my CB on the side of the hump by the gear shift, and just moved it overhead. I can't take credit for the idea, I saw it on another website. I also added a Stainless Steel whip. Made the whip mount out of a piece of aluminum stock I had.

Added polyfill inside my sound bar. It actually makes a lot of a difference. I was thinking that it wasn't gonna sound any better, but the bass is more prominent than before. I like
