How far is it out you'll want the front and back to be at least eqaul but really need you're front wider I always started even and worked from there it' according to your driving style and how the track goes IMO

It was tld to me to keep the left rear up under the car as much as possible.With the front right tire with the largest tire roll and offset wide you will have your needed cross in the car.Front left and rear right should be same tire roll and offset.Dont let offset sizes confuse you like it did me///larger the number more the tire is up under the car.

Right dbl trbl I always run my right front out about an inch or so of my RR but diff things work for diiff folks so I just generalize because of so many things that really come onto play i.e. air press. camber and so on

My first car had a Lincoln rear. We've run 4" & 5" BS wheels on the rear. For the 5" BS you need to watch out for caliper to wheel interference. We found the Aero wheels to have better clearance than Bart. The front had 1 1/2" spacers on each rotor and we ran 4" wheels there. Last season we eliminated the spacers up front and ran 2" BS up front. So I would say if you want the front and rear tracking you want 5" at rear and 2" up front with Lincoln rear and stock metric front as your base setup.

Sorry I forgot these are 10" wheels. If you run 8" wheels then my 5" is your 4" etc etc
