    Okay guys I'm gonna be ordering a set of summit drag thrust wheels for my car but I need to know the back space to run on a 15x10. I'm gonna be running a 26" tall tire.

    6.5 backspacing will be perfect.

    Well I did alittle measuring and found that my 17x9.5 wheels have a 4.5" backspace. So that tells me a 5.5 should work just fine.

    Yep so it wasn't gonna work. Now summit sells a centerline rev wheel that has a 15x10 with a 7" backspacing. Will this work?

    depending on the size tire you run, a 7" B/S wheel could hit on the inside wheel well.
