On a 15 x 8" rim a 3.5 - 4" backspacing is what you want. On the front with that small of a rim I don't know what back spacing you want, sorry.

On both of my GN's I have 3.5" back spacing (rear rims) with aluminum drums and I do not have any problems.

GN #1 runs a 9 x 28" M/T slick and GN #2 currently has 245-60-15 BF Goodrich radials on it. Next spring GN #2 will be getting a pair of 275-60-15 tires on the back.
