What yall think bout this combo?

AR Outlaw II 16x8 4.5" bs:


With these tires:

Lemans AT LT245/75R16 OWL"


I alredy got the tires. I don't like the way the stock tires look tucked under the truck. Hoping that a combo like this will make them look more inline with the factory fender flares.

if you want to make the tires line up with the truck get a smaller backspacing on the wheel. for instance, my wheels have a 4" b/s, my new ones im getting in the next couple of months will have a 3.6something b/s.

stock wheels have 4.5" backspacing so really bumping up to a 16x8 it really wont stick out or be hadly any wider then it is now just a FYI...

Is there a company that makes a similar wheel with less backspacing?

Oh and I don't really care if they stick out past the body, I just want to make it look a little wider. Outside of the tire being flush or just barely inside the flares would be fine with me. I'm not going for an agressive look, just don't like the flares hanging out so far over them as is.

The tires I got are 16" and they are almost new. I don't drop back to a 15 then I would have to get wheels and tires, which is a little outside of my budget on the truck for now.

So you think those will be wide enough to look good with the fender flares and all.

Most of my driving is on the street, and that picture dosen't actually do the justice. They are as agressive or more agressive than what came the truck stock. Lemans makes a good cheap tire, if I get those wheels and tires it will be the fifth set of lemans tires run here. I am currently running their SR series on my 84, and my dad ran same type on the 2wd he used to have. We are both currently running these AT series, and so far have ben happy with them. Since I don't mud, or rock crawl they are plenty off road for me.

I was gonna comment on them too... but since you had already bought them, I figured I'd best not say anything...

Mine stick out just enough so that with fender flares, you should be right at the edge... I think... I don't have fender flares so I can't speak from experience really.
