Mark,
That is what I use 5.5 Back Space.I dont move the Shocks in unless I am going Wider.What are your Tires close to on the Inside?I had to do some Minor work.Biggest Problem was the 3" Tail Pipes.

Joe,
Any problem with the draglites and 5-1/2 spacing. Just ordered Hoosiers new DOT drag radial in a 275/60-15 and they are in. I am running 15 x 8 x 5-1/2 BS on my '72. Also have 4-1/2 BS if needed, but I think I would rub the outside.

So you guys have fit a 15x8 with a 275/60/15 with 5.5 back spacing with no rubbing??? I want to run the widest tire I can, but I dont want to buy somthing that doesn't fit. I've heard 275/60/15 on 15x7 with 4.5 b/s fits.
