    IF I read correctly a stock 04 wheel is 16", 5.5" of back space and 7" wide.....So if you wanted more clearance for a tire hitting the UCA you would look for those spacers/adapters or more backspaced wheels correct?
    Example if stock backspace is 5.5" and say you need 1.5" more clearance, you would get a wheel with 7" backspace? IS my figuring correct? SO then a wheel 16"x7" with backspace of 7", just does not sound correct....

    What am I missing?

    Back space is the distance from the inner edge of the wheel to the back where it mounts, so if you want the tire to move out you want a wheel with less back space.

    You still screwing around on that stupid website, Tom? After all the comments such made here about that group, I'm surprised you give it a second of your time.

    Yes although 80 % are stupid, there are those who actually ask good questions and a few of us provide them with the right answers
    Plus I was on there checking out pictures of my nephews kids, 7th or 8th with 2 wives and a girlfriend :happy175:
