to answer your ?.take your wheel off and lay it on the ground pretty side down.lay a straight edge across the wheel out where the tire bead is.then measure the distance frome the straght edge to the mounting plate of the wheel.this is your backspacing.the less you make the number the more the wheel sticks out.

I am sad Washington does not do this. I see far too many vehicles on the road that have no place there. Even a minimum safety inspection would generate a lot of revenue, stimulate the economy, and reduce accidents. The inconvenience caused to car enthusiasts stretching the law is worth it, IMO.
