2" backspacing for 17" wheels
« on: Mar 18, 2020, 02:34:32 PM »
Hi All, this is just an FYI for anyone who runs into this problem.  I was running 37" MTRs on 15" wheels with 2.5" backspace.  As you know, you can hardly find a 37" tire for a 15" wheel without breaking the bank on Swampers or something.  I called Summit Racing and spoke to Thad in the wheel dept...he was able to get a custom build on 17x8 with 2.5" backspacing for me at about $125/wheel.  Hope this helps someone in my same position...good luck.

thats awesome. this should help some folks out.

thats a big reason i wont run a 17 rim is that they have no negative back spacing. ill stick with my 15s and keep it old school but i run a 35 with no intention of going bigger.
