114.3 = 4.5

i am sure this has been asked before, (i even did a search and found the answer) but i want to ask in the race car section where i think people might have accually done this.

I am almost done building the drag car, and its time to order up some wheels. but the wheels i am finding are 5x4.5 i belive this is the same as the stock 5x114.3 that comes on the 5 lug FC.

can anyone confirm this?

also what backspacing can fit...

Basically will a 5x4.5 bolt pattern fit, with 4 1/8" back spacing, and 8" wide fit?

thanks to anyone that can verify this!

Rears can go down to a 6.0" backspacing.

I dunno what the "-10" offset is in reference to (offset means nothing without width), but it's way too negative to fit nicely.

Sorry about that...missed that part.
It'll fit, but the tire will most likely contact the fender lip.

It's means -10mm.
