Per Baer's techie their hubs add .125 or 1/8 inch per side to the front track. I want to go with Forgeline RS's in 17 x 9.5 inch wide. A test fit showed that they still tuck (clear) the fenders with 285/40/17's and I could come out a tad more.
However they hit my HO sway bar way before full lock so I need to move the rim out as much as possible. My brain is fried now. Do I add or subtract back spacing to move the wheel out.

Adding backspacing (more inches of backspacing) pushes the wheel IN towards the caliper. Less backspacing will bring your wheel out closer to the fender lip. Good luck.
