Default Wheel backspacing

What backspacing do I need to get a set of Weld 15x 10in Drag Light wheels in the rear?

Rear suspension mods:
BBk U/L Control arms
Eibach Drag launch springs
Lakewood Shocks (removed quad shock set-up)


Thanks for the help as always guys!

You have 10's on your car? What size tires? What did you have to do for them to fit and do you have any pics?

Your definitly going to have to roll the fender in bang in part of the inner fender. I think 8 inch wides would be plenty, you can run 275's with them.

Dont oversize your rims but 10's are about the max... If one day you want to run slicks you might want to plan ahead...
