    I have some good 285/75R16's (same as 33x11.50) I want to put on my 40 for the winter because they do better in the deep snow than my MT's. What backspacing do I need?

    Thanks..

    probably the same 3.5" as works with 15" wheels for most tires. Less than that would be OK.

    80 series wheels fit with a 1/4" spacer on the front.
