Re: Favorite Xj Backspacing

are you running stock or with a lift? lifted, 4.5 works well and looks good too. i'm running 4 bs because of future tire size, but it works well and still looks good. in the end, what looks good is in the eye of the beholder.

Re: Favorite Xj Backspacing

I went with U.S. Wheel Daytona's from Summit Racing in a 15x7 with 4.5" BS. I'm currently running 31's. The wheels stick out a bit farther, the tires don't rub on the control arms, and they still tuck completely in the fenders at full stuff. I think it has been the best compromise for my setup.

Just my 2 cents.
