would a wheel with 3.75 backspacing stick out more than one with 3.58?

becareful not to go too much because it can put more pressure and weight on your hubs and make them wear faster..(probably dont need to worry about it...but i wanted to put what i learned today in use haha)

One way to never forget what you learn vehicle wise is to post it on RF lol

Along with that though, i never had a problem and i was at 3.313" for two years

The offset of a wheel is the measurement from the center line of the wheel to the wheels mounting pad measured in millimeters.

Backspacing is the measurment from the wheels mounting surface to the back edge of the wheel.

my wheels were 3.313" backspacing and -30.00MM offset

i know what you mean. no problem...and ok great. im thinking on either tires with my taxes or sct tuner. not sure yet-tires would really help the look but the tuner would be more useful haha
