Wheel Question

I have 16 inch fx4 wheels and was curious if these would make the wheels stick out further. Im not really that good with the whole offset and backspacing thing. Thanks. http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...All&sort=Brand

You know with the wheel and tire sticking out more in the front will put more strain on front end components especially the wheel bearing/hubs... because the wight is further out. In the rear it will be more stable wider stance. I would go with Mickey Thompson Classic II's

The backspacing on those wheels is almost the same as your stock ones. Stock ones are 4.5" BS IIRC. If you're looking for something that will make them flush with the flares, go 4" or 3.75" BS. The less BS, the further out the tire sticks.

Those are sharp! That one is eight lug, do they have 'em in five or six lug? If I had money, I would put them on mine!

Yeah but since they are wider they would be a little further stuck out right?

No. My wheels are 16x8 with 4.25" BS and they don't stick out much further than stock.

perhaps more generic, but 15s have more options for backspacing!

This is also true. I thought a lot about getting them. But i didnt have money for wheels and tires at the same time. so i bought some km2s and 6 months later im getting rims for xmas. and i have had my eyes on those kmcs since i bought the truck.

Wider will with same back spacing will stick out more, even though as Tyler said it may not be noticeable. If you are fine with the stance now those wheels will go well because they certainly won't be further in. I say you just get em they will work fine and should look good.

4 of em. $80. Idk what brand. I just haven't used them yet because I need to cut the studs. I'll probably use them though. I just haven't felt like cutting the studs yet.
