Wheels and backspacing for 7" flares?
Hi there, needing a bit of help on buying the correct wheel backspacing.

I am looking to go with 7" fender flares. I need my tyres to be flush or no more than 1/2" proud of the flares or I can't get it certified here in NZ.

What backspacing is correct to achieve this with 33 x 12.5 x 15 tyres

It also depends on 15 x 8" or 15 x 10" wheels...

Definitely don't want the tyres to sit in from the flares as thet looks wrong! So only really have 1/2" margin for error here.

Hi, I am in Whangarei with a TJ Wrangler. Mine has 7" fender flares 15x8 Crager alloy rims, 33x12.5x15 BFG tyres and wheel spacers (not sure what width). You are welcolme to make contact and have a measure up sometime or I could measure up my wheel spacers in the weekend. When I can drop a wheel off and measure in the daylight. Might help to actually see though? Drop me a line if interested. 0276548882.

3.75 or 4 inch backspace... If you are looking on the rims, they will be stamped with the amount of offset from center. -44mm for 10" wheels or -19mm for 8" wheels are common.
