any body have 15x8 that stick out of the fender wells

i want to get some new wheels but i want to have them stick out. not a stupid amount but just about an inch or 2 more then the fender flares....but it seem like every one with tires that stick out nice have 10 inch wide rims..so im wondering if i should wait to get some 33/12.5 and some 15x10 instead of 15x8's now and 31's. since u cant put 31/10.5 on a 15x10 wheel. and i need to regear b4 33's so im wondering if i should just wait or if a 15x8 with 3.25 BS and a 33/12.5 will look good. thanks

a 15x8 w/ 3.625 or 4.000 bs w/ 12.50s or 11.50s will put the outside of the tire just about to the outside of the flare.

yes you can run up to a 12.50 on 8" wheels. I have ran 12.50's on 7" wheels with no problems.

I was waiting for somebody to say that.



33x10.5 BFG A/T KO tires mounted on Eagle Alloy 057s with 3.25" backspacing. I don't have fender flares, but it looks like they'd stick out a little bit past them.

Good to see there's someone else out there not stupified by 12.50inch tires. Our trucks + extra centrifical mass = suspension component repairs. Not to mention the off-road benefits of a 10.50inch tire over a 12.50. Initiate link whoring...

yeah narrower tires are better hence tires on a geo metro are ideal for off-roading.

I had 15x8's w/3.75 BS with 32x11.50's on my Ranger when I got rid of it. They stuck out just enough. It's like one of the above posted, it's all in hte backspacing. Here are a few pics of the old truck. I don't know if you will be able to really see how much they stuck out though, but you would get the idea:
