Backspacing???

Well I just got some 15x7 Black Steel rims w/ 31x10.50R15 General Grabber AT2 tires, and I noticed that the tires don't sit centered in th fenderwell. I think I have stock backspacing but i don't know, can you change the backspacing? Or does it come in the rim?? Any feed back is appreciated. Thanks

Backspaicng it how far the mounting place is molded from the inside edge of the rim. I believe stock BS is 5in, if you want them to stick out go with something like 4in BS.

The only way to change The space between your hubs and rim is with wheel spacers, which most ppl dont recommend.

Stock is 5 1/4" BS and aftermarket are generally 4-4.5" BS. You can decrease BS with spacers, but you can't increase it without get new wheels (or cutting down the axle).
