Aftermarket 4×4 wheels are typically more than 8 inches wide and will often use a backspacing measurement that is 1 to 2 inches less than the factory backspacing. “You can choose less or more backspacing depending on the use scenario you need, and try not to make dangerous attempts at either extreme of backspacing.
