15X8 w/ 3.75 BS will stick out a little bit if you're flareless. I think its pretty near flush on stock flares.
After that less backspacing will set the wheel further out. If 2 wheels have same backspacing, but different widths, the wider one will stick out more.

mickey thompson classic II's are 15 x 8 and have a backspacing of 3.31 . thats what i am running on mine with 31x10.5 and i think they look good . they are out slightly past the flares but not too far out for the tire size. i would stay away from spacers personally .

Something in the ~3.25" bs on a 8" wide rim wouldn't be too shabby.

+1 on no spacers

15x8 (3.75" BS) with 31x1050... I like it beacuse the factory flares are flush with tires like Tim said...

15x10 is the way to go, I wish I didn't get these 15x8's.

3.75 like trent said the lower you go the further they stick out but 3.75 would be as low as i would go

hmm 15x10 isent lookin to bad.. i like how much they stick out.. im guessing a 15x10 4" bs is equivlent to a 15x8 3.25" - 3" bs.. interesting..

mossyoak what wheels are thoughs? i cant find 15x10 with 4" bs.. i can find 15x10 classic 2's with 3 5/8" bs.. but i want my tires to stick out just like yours..

My tires stick out a decent amount.

15x10's with 3 5/8" BS
12.5" wide tires
Fabtech spindles so they make them stick out more in front
and I believe 1" rear spacers to make the rear even with the front

I have an Edge so I have stock flares and they stick out past them a decent amount all the way around. I would NEVER run spacers up front, but in the rear I don't think they are too bad especially since they are only 1".

I have the cragar soft 8's in a 15x10 with 4" backspacing. I ordered them from Jegs online. I think they're about $50 each. They shipped out fast too. They were on my doorstep in three days. Here's the link.

Definitely don't use spacers and I wouldn't put 10.5" wide tires on a 15x10 wheel.

Here's my 33x12.5 on 15x10 with 4" backspacing.
