Default How to decide backspacing

Putting a set of 15x8 wheels and 31's on my truck and was wondering what the stock backspacing is on the 15x6 wheels and if I should keep the backspacing stock. I want the aggressive look without my tires being outside the wheelwell too much.

Stock BS is 4.5". Most of the 15x8's I have seen have around 3.75" of BSing. I would go with 3.75" and higher.

Thanks guys, I think Im going to go with 4" backspacing. I can get brand new Cragar Soft 8's for $47 a piece new on SummitRacing.com. And just found a set of brand new 32" MudTracs for $250 on Craigslist.
