15x8's w/3.75 backspacing what do yall think? Will it look Good? Will the Tires stick out of the fenders some?

That link is messed up you have a extra http:// at the beginning. I think it would look great on your truck. The tires would stick out 1-2 inches from the flares, it would look fantastic.

I do not think they make those wheels in 3.25 backspacing. I want them to stick out past the flares tho.

I just read that they don't make them... But I love those wheels! The guy that did my lift I went in and bull****ted with him and the others that work there and the owner but them on his lime green jeep on 38's and I LOVE those wheels... I think he gave me a price of like 120 or 130 a wheel.. So nice!

I love those wheels! I plan on getting them next time I get new wheels. I just have to figure out how I can justify them. I love them and can't wait to see them on a red Ranger!

I think with my truck having more black (black fender flares, all black interior, and plastic) that the black with chrome pro comp's will look better.

Yes the tire will look bigger with a 10in wide rim, but you can't lower the pressure down as low as a 8in wide rim... That's the only difference I see
