Looking into buying the black soft 8's but dont know what backspacing I should go with?
What size tire?


3.75", 4", 4.25", and 4.5" are popular sizes that we all use.

You will need more backspacing on a 11.5" wide tire than a 10.5" wide tire to pervent them from rubbing on your lower control arms when you turn. For a 12.5 or 11.5" tire, i'd go with 3.75" or 4" at the minimum. I have 11.5" wide tires and i rub just a tiny bit on the arms with 4" backspacing. It's not major though.


Here's a 11.5" wide tire with 4" backspacing crager soft-8's
