GM Rallye Wheels 4.5 vs 5" backspacing

Hello,

Does anyone have a picture of GM Corvette style Rallye wheels with 4.5" or 5" backspacing. I'm trying to determine which one I'd like to get.

Thanks,

I think you should make that choice based on where you want the wheel & tire to sit relative to the fender lip. Be aware that sometimes even 4.5" b/s on a front wheel can cause the wheel to hit a control arm or tie rod end depending on wheel diameter, spindles, etc. And on the back, too much b/s can cause the tire to hit leaf springs.

Earlier when I asked for 4.5 or 5" backspacing, I was backwards. What I was really needing pictures of was 4" or less backspacing on Corvette Rallies, or really any 8" wheel.

3.5 backspace. 7 wide in front with 235-60-15 , 8 wide rear with 255-60-15. Yes the all rub on bumps of when 2 or more people in car. Yes it has bump steer( follows bumps or road crown like corvette) I don’t recommend you go that far from factory specs.
