Need help on wheel/rim fitment on my D60

Thinking of going to 42 bfg reds on 20's. Currently steering is D60 with reid knuckles in double shear and i dont have much room from end of heim to tire. Other issue is i want to try and stay the same width (just over 82). Still want to fit onto both my trailers.

Current set up:
39x13.5x17 reds
Trail Ready Beadlocks 17x8.5 with 4.5 Back Spacing

New setup:
42x14.5x20 reds
Trail Ready Beadlocks 20x9.5 with 5 Back Spacing.

What is the most Back Spacing i can run with a double shear setup on the reid's. I can go to a different high steer arm, single shear, that moves it in over an inch. then i could run a 5.5 Back Spaced rim if i need to.

Want to know what folks are running and how it changed their width. Let me know.

Reid does not make a steering arm, I would start Measuring or ask whom ever you bought the double shear steering arm from.

I may be using the terminology wrong. I have my heim on top of my high steer arm, high steer arm bolted to a reid knuckle (didnt say i had a reid high steer arm). I have a long bolt going thru the high steer arm, thur a 8inch or so spacer down to the cast steering arm on the reid knuckle (not sure if thats double shear or not). here is the best pic i have of it right now.

Those look like an Artec arm, but I can't see it that well.

Moving your rod end location opens up a whole other can of worms with steering cylinder location unless you can move them in with different arms, but then you don't get the strength advantage of the Artec arm setup.

That is still only a single sheer setup.. if you had your steering rod end in between the two arms then its double sheer..

I want to keep the setup the way it is for strength. i have other high steer arms that would move it more in, but then i could not use the lower arm, as they would not be lined up.

So, its only double sheer if the heim is between the two, not on top of the arm like my set up is.

I have a message into Artec. they say 4.75 backspace with 17's. not sure if i can get any more backspace with the 20's.
