what is the back spacing for these ?
I recently bought a 00 TJ and the original owner put these chrome wheels on it that i am not to fond of. I love the stance of the jeep and i have 6 inch flares, but the wheels dont say the back spacing.

Here are the specs that are on the wheels:

16x10 et 38........

the tires stick out a little past the 6 inch flares but legal in WA. So not too much, maybe about 1/4-1/2 inch.

Im a newb and have seached to find the answer on what the back spacing is for et38 but i have no luck...

can someone help please.. the chrome wheels have gotta go asap lol

thanks all :dance:

ET38 means the offset is 38mm which is 1.49". What I can't tell you is if it is + or - offset. They are either 3.5" bs or 6.5" but that seems unlikely since they stick out from your flares.

so would it be more like 3.5 BS?

with BS, is the higher the number the more sticking out beyond flares? or it the other way around? (the lower the more sticking out)

thank you so much for the help :)

Lower the number the more it will stick out. 3.5" will stick out more than 4.5".
