another rim question

I have American racing ar 767 currently not the prettiest rim. But I like it. Rear has 4.5 backspacing. Getting ready to install new suspension which in return will lower the car. I contacted American racing to see if they made the rim with a 6 inch back spacing but no response. Anyone know of an affordable 15 x 10 rim with that backspacing. I found basset racing, but they mention rim fatigue on their own site. Any info would be great.

Garage
I run Weld Racing Pro Magnum 15x9 1/2" rims with 6" backspacing. They are two piece wheels with a variety of center designs and finishes available.

Why the 9 1/2" rim width? Because they fit perfectly without rubbing on my quarter panels (which I still rolled) with the tires I run, 12.5" wide M/T ET Streets.
