Would the tires rub? how bad would the tires ride on the road? and what size backspace would i need to get on the rims? the 6.09 backspace with 15mm offset or the 7 inch backspace with 38mm offset? Please help me out here. Thanks
If you're 16 and don't have/want to spend a butt load of money, then why are you even considering about a $2000 wheel/tire combo!?!?!?? Let alone lifting your truck...
You should be looking at 15" wheels and tires. The combo is going to be less than half the price of that 18" setup. 15" alloy wheels can be had for $75-150 each. Those 18's are nearly 300 each. I had a hard enough time getting a spare $200 to buy used 265's when I was 18. Of course I had the truck payment, insurance to pay for too...
Backspace on a 10" wheel on these trucks needs to be in the ballpark of 3.5" to 5". Any more backspace and it'll be too sucked in. Any less, it'll push the tire out so far that you'll run the risk of rubbing the fender while turning.
Oh yeah....3" BL and 33x12.50s are about the most common setup on these 98+ 4x4's...hands down. TONS have it. You're good to go depending on wheel choice(width and backspace).
