    The rim is 8'' and backspaceing is 3.5. I would of liked a 4'' backspaceing but that's all I could find used at the time. No didn't have to make room for them

    Well got to go to the track today the weather was around 55 all day and sunny. It was a test and tune day and it seams like everyone and there brother with a street tire was there so the traction was at a all time low. But I was able to ran a 11.42 right off the trailer. Not bad was fighting a spinning issue off the line all day. I talk to some others and I wasn't the only one. So after crossing the center line on my 4th pass and going sideways I put some more air in the tires and made another pass and ran my 11.39 @ 118.55 mph. So I put the car on the trailer and was happy with my day. I think with little better weather and better track prep I think a lower 11.30 would have happend but that's it for the season.
