WANTED: Looking for new wheels. I need four wheels for a FFR, 5 lug. Tires would be nice as well. 17" preferred, but I'm open to other sizes. Let me know what you've got.

Thanks,

Backspacing

Is there a way to tell what backspacing I have without taking the wheel off and measuring it, or is that the only way?

The best way to measure the back spacing is with the wheel off. That said, I've done it with a tape measure through the spokes in the wheel. Measure the full rim width, then the front spacing (brake mounting face to front edge of rim). Subtract the two for the backspace. A piece of wood or ruler helps with getting the front space distance by placing the wood across the edges of the rim.

HTH,

John

Steven,

Did you get the e-mail concerning the wheels?

Let me know if I need to bring them to AZ.

Yep, I got it Ray. I just need to measure the backspacing on my wheels to know if they will fit.

I should know tonight.
