They come in multiple backspacking specs.
Why don't you ask Weld tech support?

FD can use back spacing up to ~7-1/4, or more, it really depends on the section width of the tire you are going to run, what trailing arms, springs, etc. since it is a 15" rim, I assume this will be a drag tire. If you are asking a fitment question, you need to be very specific. If you want to know the specs for the largest rim for a drag tire, some of the dedicated drag guys would be better to ask. Most people here are road racers, and AX's. Carl

Stock rims are 16" x 8", +50 offset.
Can you figure the backspacing off those specs?
Yes, 6.0"...
