instead of 10x15....

I want to get the tires to stick out just a bit to get a beafier look, but I dont want to get 10x15 inch rims. What kind of backspacing would I need to get this effect. Im going to run either 33x10.5 or 33x12.5.

Also where could I find this custom backspacing? I like the black crawler rims.

Thanks.

10x15?!??!?!

i am glad you dont want a 10" tall rim and 15" wide ...

going with the fact you ment 15x10 wheel.. well look into a 15x8 with 3.25 back spacing... also if your not going to body lift or suspension get the 33x10.5 less rubbing issues even tho it looks like a pizza cutter...

a 15X8 rim with a 33X12.5 tire would be pretty good and be beefy but if you go any wider you'll need to step it up to 15X10.

You could always go with a 32x11.50, it's a little wider and less rubbing.

This was my Ranger several generations of mods back with 15x8 Mickey Thompsons with 3.25" backspacing and 31x10.5x15 tires.
