I am going to tell you what I've said a million times already. I absolutely love the Toyo's I put on my truck. They are on 18x9 wheels and there is about 10 inches on the ground. I did run 1.5" spacers so that they fit with the fender flares.

edge how much backspacing do those wheels have? i thought 11.50s would stick out further, i have 10.50s and they are about 1/2 in past my fender wells but i dont have the flares like u either, really want a wider stance...think mine a 3.75 or 3.50 back sapce

im looking for an off road look. i saw this ranger with a level stock lift and his tires(im pretty sure were mickeys bara crawlers) were probably an inch out from the fenders.
04blackedge, you have a wide stance im looking for something a bit more. will a bigger rim do this for me or will i need like some new A-arms or somehthign?

If you go with like a body lift with 15x10s and 33x12.5s those will stick out like 2" more then mine are.

32x11.5 and get a rim with low backspacing. I've seen a couple rims that have like a 3.3 back spacing.
