What is backspace ?

 

Wheels (rims) with different backspacing are used to make sure that the wheels are always flush with the outline of the M-Class body no matter what tire sizes or possible fender flares are used.

Less backspace means that the tire/wheel combo sticks out further.

More backspace means that the tire/wheel combo stays in more.
