Default 4.5" backspacing

So i understand what backspacing is and all but would like to see a visual here so I'm wondering if anyone is running a 16x8 wheel with 4.5" backspacing and what it looks like? And what your tire set up is as well and if you have any rubbing issues at all

No pics, but a 4.5 backspacing on a 16X8 would put the tire well inside the outer edge of the wheel fender. I have 265's on 16X8's with a 3.75 B.S. which lines the tires up parallel to the outer edge of the fender.

I don't have a pic either but Rwenzing posted this in another thread.

Compared to a stock 7" wide Ranger wheel, a 16x8 with 4 3/4" BS:

The outer rim would be moved about 3/4" farther out.
The center of the tire would be moved about 1/4" farther out.


take about 1/8 of an inch off those numbers and you have an idea.

I can show you a side shot of my truck with my wheels(same as yours) and tires. It's not sucked too far in.

This picture kind of gives you an idea if you look at the back wheel. I have a better picture somewhere. I'm looking for it.
