    Rockstars have 5.5 backspacing but they are in 18's and up.

    Offset and backspacing measurements are directly related. In other words one affects the other. You are probably going to have to go with 20mm offset to get the backspacing you need. Offset is the distance the mounting surface of the wheel is from the centerline, not including the lip. Backspace is the distance the mounting surface is from the back edge of the rim, so clearly these measurements will affect each other. Check out this thread.

    i have an 07' ltz vortex max with front 2.5" leveling kit & put 17x9 -6 offset which comes to 4.75 backspace with 285-75-17 nittos (33).if you go with 5.25 or 5.5 backspace with a 35 you may rub on frame or suspension,you need to get the tire out with a smaller backspacing.
