Question back spacing

I know I am probably dumb, but what is the back spacing for on a wheel? Does it make it stick out further to help bigger tires not rub?

That is why it is called a short cut. If it was easy it would just be "the way."

Remember, there are no stupid questions. Just stupid people. JK. Backspacing is simply the term used to describe how far the center of the wheel is from the inside lip. For instance, if you had 0 backspacing, the tire would stick out dramatically. Wheels have various backspacing, so if you pick the correct one, the tire will not rub any suspension or steering components. Or, if you care at all, not stick out too far.
