I opted for the DF drilled hubs 5 x 114.3
Looking at 17x10 wheels with et of 18
Which comes out to 6.21 inch backspacing.

According to internet factory backspacing is 6.0 inch and cobalt forums say they max at 6.27inch backspacing before hitting struts.

I think I'm allset but for about 2grand figured I would ask, thanks

I could go for the 9.5, which gives backspacing of 5.96 inches

I have the DF coilovers for the rear will this give me more or less space ?

This is what I run , I don’t know if you would have enough room in rear, I don’t have spacers

I think so I've never ordered wheels before, last time I bought porsche wheels they were off by an inch, held on to them a year and traded with a guy who made the same mistake the other way, split year porsches very lucky did an even trade
