Backspacing is the distance from the mounting surface of the wheel to the inner rim edge. It determines how far inboard the wheel will fit. Too little backspacing and you may run into fender clearance problems. Too much and you may have suspension clearance problems.

check out the tire-related topics in the FAQ link shown below; there's a chart that will tell you what tires/wheels/backspacing will work with what car.
