Going for 15" to 16" Wheels
What's up guys -
For the last few years I have had 15x8 steel wheels with 3.75 backspacing. Tires have always been 33x12.50xr15. My front end has the 1st generation camburg 6.0 entry level kit with uniball uppers. If I can recall correctly, I got this backspacing to be sure of no rub with the upper arm. I am looking to drop some wheel and tire weight and go with a pro comp matte black alloy 16" wheel. From what I can tell they all have 4.50 backspacing. I don't mind if my track width is reduced by 3/4 inch, but I am worried of rub. Will I see a significant differnce?
My other question is if I want to downsize a tad in euro measurement tires, would I be safe to assume going from a 33x12.50xr15 to a 285/75/16 would make that tad difference? Again, I want to take some weight and stress off of my current suspension and hopefully increase gas milage a tad. Any help would be great!
