I want to get the Fikse FM5 wheels, i was thinking 17" but dont know the measurements i need in terms of backspacing etc. I want to install 315 tires, can somebody please help me with this and also teach me about the wheel measurements. I know what they are i just dont know how to calculate them.

Good luck with it all
