Wheel tech - backspacing, offset, etc.
« on: November 22, 2008, 09:32:33 AM »
Nice explanations and charts found here. https://www.rsracing.com/tech-wheel.html

For quick reference, this would be the appropriate place to note that Eagles have 5 on 4.5 lug pattern with 4.5 backspace.

Just a word of caution, I found out the hard way that, sometimes, the advertised  back space is not the same as the actual  back space, so when buying new wheels, always measure first, before you mount them
so that's a Matador...!!!

6" on the stock steel wheels.  And, I believe 7" for the factory alloys.
