|Back space is the distance from the hub mounting surface of the rim to the back lip of the rim. |
What changes the back space distance is the offset which is usually measured in mm. You can go to this site
and play with the offset being + or - and see how it affects back space.
I'm sure someone on here can give a better explanation than me though.
The rims I have on my 65 Cuda are 5.95 back space and it allowed me to put a 275 in the stock wheel well of my cuda without rubbing.
Tire rack probably has a explanation of back space.
