    As it turn out I don't care for the Mopar cop wheels I had and have put on my Duster with Cooper Cobra's. To me it looks incomplete, even if I got centers and trim rings.

    My Summit makes a nice weld wheel knockoff, 15x8, that comes in a 4-1/2 backspace.
    some folks I know who know what they are talking about have said I can get up to a 275/60 in there on that rim. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    15x8 with a 4.5" backspace and 275/60/15's should fit with the 8.25" rear axle. Obviously you should measure your car, the spring to wheel mounting surface and wms to quarters is what you want to look at. But on a duster you should have the room. If you had an 8 3/4 I'd say get some more backspace, but the 8.25's are narrower so 4.5" should be right.
