that is way too much backspacing.

the more backspacing you have the more the wheel sticks in not out

Yeah, you want something with LESS backspacing.. 4 or less, and preferably 8 inches wide.

www.summitracing.com is good

I have used 4wheelparts before with no problems, I always pick my stuff up in the store though.

the closest store is ~ 60 miles away, probably cheaper than shipping anyway
