    backspace

    have an 88 YJ and have been considering putting 4' backspace on the tires, is it as simple as throwing them in behind the tire and thats it...can anybody elaborate a bit for me?

    backspacing is built into the rim.. unless you mean wheel spacers.
    but 4" is standard on a 15x8 rim.

    Actually 3 and 3/4 is standard backspacing for an offroad rim at 15x8 in our bolt pattern
