    thanks, but do u know what backspacing was used? I don't really mind grinding my calipers down, but how do u do it? Is it just a "sight" thing- putting the rim on, felling where it hits, then taking it off and grinding, or is there another way to do it? Thank you

    15x8 Weld uses 5.5' backspace. 15x10 uses 7.5'. Here's a couple articles with more info.

    If you have the money get the Bogarts. You won't have to grind and they are a better wheel.
