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...

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.
