He's over at TRS or RPS, he may be here too, but I remember him talking about ordering his new tires.

Truck is an 08/09 and is bodylifted. I'm thinking he's prekeyed, but am unsure.



I'm doing some searchin'.

You can also look at Ryan's truck over at RPS...BL, Prekey, 285's. Or Marie's/DisturbedESV or Jesse's/Cooke15 here.

ahh ryan.. ive chatted with him on car domain! back when he had just a BL and 265s! sweet truck indeed...

ive done my fair share of drooling over pics lol.. just coming down to the crunch and its hard to forsee what MY rig is gunna look like!! im hoping something along the lines of howells or hozII's truck!! they seem to really sit ontop of the 33s...same with cooke too..hell any Ranger is BA with 33s..

anyways BL is basically done and wheels should be in next week (15x8 ion alloy174b w/ 3.5" backspacing) and im slightly torn between 32s and 33s!!!

HAH

thats exactly the type of motivation i need lol..

i went and looked at the 33s today and thats kinda what i was leaning towards... now the only thing thats been haunting me is if i should have gone with a 15x10 instead?? after looking at all the comparo shots im starting to like the wider stance..

you think a 15x8 with 3.5 will stick out of the wheel wells much??

edge of tire will be right at the flare I'd say.


Pics posted above are I believe 8 and 4" bs. add 1/2" sticking out more, you'll have 3.5" bs.




EDIT: *****! Procomp has some SERIOUS backspace options now! 15x8 Soft 8/aka Series 98 w/ 5x4.5 bolt pattern: 2.75", 3.5", 3.75", 4.5" backspace options. WOW. lol....so.....IDK what that truck above actually has. I'm definately leaning away from 4.5", and leaning from 2.75 too. 2.75 would stick out justl ike a 10".

http://www.procomptires.com/truck-je...98-wheels.aspx

Now, I'm second guessing my 4" BS claims on my wheels....after seeing how many options in BS there is for my 15x10 series 52's.

great! im using one of his pics for my background actually!! his truck is in PERFECT proportion imo.. so with only that .5" difference in backspace it should look roughly the same as him... i can live with that!!

appreciate the help Shane, you da man! cant wait to finally be rolling on 33s!

damn you. I wish mine looked like that. my guess is 16x10 with about 4.5" bs.. But it's really hard to tell at those angles. Looks sticking out farther than an 8 with the same bs.
