just get wheels with the least back space u can find...u will probably need 15x10 to get them to stick out an inch farther with out wheel spacers....but also depends on what size tire ur gonna run.

What wheels do you want? We could offer more help if we knew what wheels you are considering.

I had a 10" wide wheel with 0 offset so 5" backspacing and they were just inside the wheel well. Now i have 12" wide rim with about 4" of backspacing and they sit about 1-1.5" of the wheel well. both were with a 33x13.50

Stock wheels are 7" wide and have 4" or 4.5" of backspacing.

Recommended backspacing on a 15x8 wheel is 3.75 inches with -19mm offset.

That's about 4" of backspacing so it will probably sit pretty close to flush with an 8" wide wheel.
