Trying to figure out what to do with my rear rims. I have a 1966 Beetle with the IRS setup from a 1975 Super Beetle. Confused on how to determine what backspacing to put on the rims. I am looking at 15 x 8 inch rims with either a 3.5 inch backspace and a -25mm offset or 2.644 inch backspacing with a -47mm offset. Don't really know which to go with or if either are going to rub. Any advice would be loved Smile

I would go with the 2.6" backspace to give yourself the wider stance
