    17x8 / 17x9.5 Backspacing

    Looking for your advice on backspacing...

    I am looking to add a set of larger rims for an upcoming event (more on that later). It’s basically a 17” version of the wheel used on the Sam Posey Challenger. Here are my questions:

    a) will a 17x8 wheel with 4.5 backspacing work on the front?

    b) assuming no issues with a 17x8 wheel with 4.5 backspacing in the rear?

    c) will a 17x9.5 with 5.5 backspacing work in the rear?

    d) if I could have these made to order, what would be the ideal backspacing for a 17x8 in the front and a 17x9.5 in the rear?

    Thanks guys, really appreciate your thoughts.

    A friend just did that exact combo. You'll have to keep the rears off the lips, but they fit.
