    Latest tires I am using on my boxes 265 50 15 front and 295 50 15 rear Hankook. Very close to the BFG 275 50 15s used to use on the front that were discounted. Wheels purchased for the wagon 8 x 15 4" offset Crager. Rear are 10 x 15 5" offset vintage wheels. Going to install OEM hub caps before long

    So according to this 93 Ranger wheels should fit an 85Colony Park.

    Is the back spacing different?

    it might be but unless you have a wide wheel you should not have clearance problems

    Is that a backspace to offset conversion?

    Default Backspacing

    I am looking to get a matching set of these from Summit. What is the backspacing I should order?

    3.75, 4.0 or 3.625?

    I will probably got 235/60/15.

    Thanks.

    To calculate backspacing and offset you use these formulas:

    (rim width) / 2 + 0.5" + (offset /25.4) = backspacing

    [ (backspacing) - 0.5" - (rim width) / 2 ] * 25.4 = offset

    Examples,

    A 16" X 8" wheels with 24mm of offset.

    (8"/2) + 0.5" + (24mm/25.4) = 5.44" of backspacing.

    A 16" X 8" wheel with 4.5" of backspacing.

    [ 4.5" - 0.5" - (8/2) ] * 25.4 = 0mm of offset.


    Take note the 0.5". The 0.5" is there to take into account the thickness of the bead lip of the wheel, since whell width is from inside to inside of the bead. The factory wheels for 79-02 Panthers are 0mm offset. Knowing this to find out what BS you need, simply divide the desired rim width by two (2) and add the 0.5". That will give you the backspacing that is best for our cars for said rim width.
