    Welcome Josh!

    What size rim are you trying to go with -- 15", 16", 17", 18" or larger? I am pretty sure that if you try for 15" you will need to grind the heck out of your calipers to make them fit. I believe that Bogart is the only aftermarket 15" wheel that will bolt up without modification.

    We run 15" x 10" on the rear of our car for the track, but I didn't have a clue on what the backspacing is.

    A lot of people run a 7.5 bs simply to get away from the tire sticking out farther than the car. 6.5 bs is also very common because it is aligned out even with the body panel (which has been noticed to hit on hard launches or lowered cars) and 5.5 sticks out around an 1" on the sides.

    Alot of people run 15x7 but me i have always liked the big and little setup (no the best for daily but a lot of people do it) and they are 15x4 or 15x3 1 1/2" bs with 1/2" spacers.

    Rears are a personal option in what you like, what type of weather you have and how much rubber you actually want hitting the ground lol. Nitto, mt, are prob my two favorites. bfg's are good but very noisy. I will post some pics as soon as i finish up my new 9" of the setup i have.

    I use spacers up front, and be prepared to do a lot of grinding on your rear calipers.
