32's, which wheels?

So in the next few weeks here I will most likely be getting 32's to replace my old stockers. The question is should I keep the stock rims for the new tires, or invest in a new set of rims? I would probably go 15x8 as well.

Do you want to spend the money on new wheels? Aftermarket wheels look better IMO but your stockers will work fine with 32s as well.

Yea thats what Im trying to decide, if I want to spend the money to get some aftermarket wheels. How far would 32's stick out on stock wheels?

Would you be going with 32x11.50's? If so, then they won't stick out past the fender flares.

^^no. lol. 15x8 w/ 4" backspace would put the tire just about inside the flare. I ran those with 32x11.50's.


If you got the green, I'd say go for 15x8's.

yeah, and i'm talking about aftermarket that still don't stick past the flares, debunking what you said.


*i'm talking the upside of the flare, highest on the fender part of the flares, not down towards the bottom where it curves closer to the body.
