Default Double Checking Backspace Info

hey guys I was jw something, im going to be buying 15x8 rims and with all things being similar, will a wheel with lower number backspacing stick out farther than a higher one? for example will a rim thats 15x8 with 3.75 bs stick out wider on the truck than a 15x8 rim with 4 bs?

yes, the lower the backspacing, the more the tire will "stick out"

kk thanks for the help. no honestly the style rim im choosing, there is acourse like 4 different companies that make the same look. I cant really find differences and most say they just bought the particular brand they did just because they found a good deal, or place near them that had it. after so more research ive noticed that actually the backspacing differs on most of them. I like the tire to and rim to stick outside the truck, but I didnt want to move up to a 10 wide rim on a no fender truck and put more wear and tear on my bearings and such. I think the lowest bs on the style rim that I like is 3.65'' and the highest is 4'' backspacing. so I was making sure that the 3.65' backspacing would stick out the most, and that would be the one Id go for if that makes sense. thanks, Zach.
