265/75's on 16x8 wheel

I think this is what i'm gonna go with after all. I'm not gonna do the body lift that I had planned a while ago. Any of you runnin this kind of set up? If so do you have any pics you can post? Also what back spacing should I go with. I don't want any rubbing issues.

I'd go with a 4" backspace if you can find 'em.

I am running the ProComp 1079 series wheels in a 16X8 BS I am not sure about but with a tbar crank and a AAL in the rear I am good. Here are a few pictures.

No rubbing issues as of yet. Had to re-crank my T-bars after me abusing it alot, but besides that, absolutely nothing. I am going to go up a size for the next tires, but there will be a body lift added.

According to ProComp's website, Ory's Pro Comp Xtreme Alloy 1079 16x8's have a 4" backspace.

265/75/16 on stock rims with absolutely no rubbing, tbars cranked but not all the way. just curious why would you need back spacing if they don't rub? Doesn't backspacing make the tires stick out further? Is that better for wheeling and balance or does it just look cooler?

Well I don't want the wheels to be too far in or out. I would like them to be about where they are at now. I don't want to run into any issues.

i've got 15x10 with 4" backspace(2" sticking out farther than a 8" w/ 4" bs)...and i have no issues. I'm just saying....doesn't really matter what backspace you do......265/75r16's are small enough to not rub no matter the backspace(so long it's not more than 5". lol.)
