What back spacing are you able to get away with on rear discs? 3.5, 3.75?? Or do you have to do custom bs rims, spacers?
What I have now is soa rear with GM disc conversion, tires I have are 35.15.5X15, trying to determine what the best rims are to run, with the best backspacing. Front is soa, shackle reversal, cut and turned housing with saginaw P/S.
Another concern is the tires rubbing on the frame, or springs at full turn in the front.
Any suggestions?

I had spring rub in front with my 38.5's on 3.75" BS 10" rims w/ 1/4" spacers....with the 2" BS rims, no problems.

3.75" BS works in the rear with the monte calipers.

Personally, 3" or less BS is nice...little added track width, little less body/spring interference.

Thanks Woody! I figured I would need around 3" or less BS. More than likely here I will not find any rims less than 3.75 BS, Alaska really sucks for finding parts. Looks like customs, or run adapters. $$$$. :-/
