Custom wheels and rims are available in a wide array of dimensions. A 15x8 American Eagle wheel in a given style might have backspacing that range from two to six inches.

This means that the tire can either be tucked up under the fender, or it can hang out. Because of this, it makes sense to check and double-check dimensions before buying custom wheels.

Custom Wheel Backspacing

Backspacing is defined as the measurement from the inside of the rim edge to the edge of the mounting surface. It can be measured by putting a yardstick across the backside of the rim and measuring the distance between the mounting surface hub and the yardstick. Backspace is expressed in inches. See diagram 2 below.

Determining the amount of backspacing will help you determine the amount of wheel offset. This information is useful in determining what wheel will fit your car or truck, especially if you want to replace a set of wheels that fit correctly with another set of the same size but are a different style. The above measurement is done to the wheel with the tire off.

You should become familiar with some of the technical terms all manufacturers and our Custom Wheels n Rims Sponsors use to describe custom wheels and custom rims.
