Backspacing and Offset Q's

I'm going to be going with a 15x10 wheel. What backspacing and offset should i get. I know nothing about either one. Dont want to look retarded witht the wheels hangin all the way out from the fenders, plus i dont get the wrong B.S. and Offset and screw somthing up...

you should get a 3 5/8" backspacing with the 15x10............i would get 15x8's with the 11.5 tire, just my opinion!

i wouldnt recommend it. plus with a 15x10 it will be sticking out the fender like mine does. a long way

a 11.5" wide tire would fit alot better on 15x8
