Backspace help...

Hey guys,
need some quick help again... ive searched so i think i know the answer, just wanna make sure before i spend this much money.

Ordering some HoleShot wheels next week, and im going with a 15x8 rear.
I thought i would need a 4.5" BS, seeing that 10" uses 6.5 and my old 7" TelStars were 3.5".

Upon searching i see everyone uses 5.5" for 8" wheels...
heres my problem... Holeshot goes by 7/8", not 1/2", so my options are 4-7/8" or 5-7/8"
Im assuming just go ahead to the 5-7/8" but i just wanna make sure.


11 SHO - Tuxedo Black - Livernois MyCal 4+ tune, K&N Typhoon, Stainless Works downpipes, Magnaflow Tru-X mid-muffler/Dynomax UltraFlo's, 170* t-stat, H&R Sports

04 GT - Comp Orange - John Tymensky Boss Block/3.80 stroker, Foxlake TFS', Hellion kit w/ Comp CT5 Turbo, MM cage, Team Z/MM suspension
