    100% on the grinding to fit a 15" wheel on the back.
    LOTS of grinding.

    I think that is the right backspacing for the 15x8.

    I know the 15x10 is 7.5" backspaced. And if I remember correctly, the 15x8 was also 2" smaller on the backspacing.

    15x8 w/5.5 backspace is correct. Not sure on offset. I have the 15x8s.

    backspacing and offset mean the same thing, but in different terms.

    backspacing is measured in inches and it's how much inward of the total wheel width.

    offset is measured in millimeters and is how much from the center point of a given width is is. positive inward from center. negative outward from center.

    example:
    15 x 8 wheel has a center point of 4". this would be 4" backspacing and 0mm offset.
