    Anyone running 18" x 10 rear with 275/40/18 & 18" x 8 Front with 265 /40/18
    do you know the backspace i am looking at the Forgline ZX3 like on the Hotchkis Challenger
    Hard trying to get a good answer tried the Forgeline page but they dont respond
    Thinking 4.5 backspace on front & 6" backspace on rear using Baer 14" rotor with 6 pot front
    4 pot rear.

    I am running 275/40r18 on a 10” wheel with a 5” back space but if I was going to have new wheels made I would go with 5.5 backspace.

    Yea, I think a 275 on a 10” rim with 6” backspace might rub on the spring.
