H2 wheel backspacing

I've searched and all i gathered was an answer that said they are "5.5" backspacing(i think)"

I'd like to find the actual answer for certain before buying a set

Thanks

Per my wheel vendors website; Factory rims are 8.5" wide, and have a
+22 mm offset. this indicates the the mounting face is 22 mm closer to
the face of the rim from center. 8.5" % 2 = 4.25" + .866" =5.116" backspace.
22 mm % 25.4 ( conversion to inch ) = .866"

That is good math, but the measured backspacing is 5 5/8" since it is measured from the inside edge of the wheel, and offset is measured from where the bead seats. I have personally measured this with a tape measure.

It's more than 4.25". I have a set of H2s on my truck and the rears are almost inside the fender. Stock 15x8 ralley's stick out more than these do.

does a 40 x 12.5 or 13.5 tire provide enough clearance for hub protection?

I have 37x13s on mine, doesn't give alot of protection. Only real way to do that is more offset.
