    I've looked at quite a few threads and found that everyone is running 15x6 with 3.5" backspacing on Fox Mustangs on the front. One reason is because that was all that was available in 4-lug.

    I'm going to be buying 5-lug because of my 95 spindles. In 5-lug Draglites they offer 2.5", 3.5", or 4.5" backspacing. Is 3.5" still the one I need to buy?

    Also trying to decide on a tire size. Daily driver car with no track time. Thats why I'm getting rid of the 4-lug 15x3.5 draglites I have on there.

    Any info and/or pictures would be great!

    Are you still going to use weld draglites after converting to 5 lug? IMO there are a ton more options that look better. But each there own

    I'm ordering 17" Pony R's for it. I have the draglites for sale but if they don't sell I'll keep them too.

    Anyone know the answer to the backspacing question?

    Its not a question of whats broke or not. With the 4-lug there was no option for backspacing. With the 5-lug there are three different choices. So there may be one that works better. Just curious what backspacing others were running with a 6 inch wheel.

    I understand that what i meant was if the backspacing on the 4 lug works why take the chance with anything else. And by works better how could it work anybetter.. I have the 4 lug they dont stick out, rub, or scrub.. So i would say its perfect

    Billy,

    It just clicked in my head, but I've got something similar on my car, I could measure when I get home tonight. Do you still have (or ever get) my number so you can call me and remind me?

    They're billet Centerlines, but off the top of my head I can't remember the width. They might be 6" wide. If so, Ill measure the BS.
