Anybody running this setup and if so, what backspacing are you running (4.25", 4.5")?

If not, what are you running in a 17" or 18"?

Thanks,
Rich

Thanks for the inputs and opinions. It looks like a 18X8 with 5" backspacing should do the trick for a 245/45.

I tried my rear tire on the front and it won't clear the lower front edge of the fender. The rears are 255 x 45 x 17 with 8 x 4.5" BS rims. A 245 x 45 x 18 tire is even taller . Look in this section for the tire calculator, I like the bottom one on the list ,rimstires, you can compare 2 tires side by side.
