    not 4.25 for sure. there is 3.5 and 2.75/2.50 left in sizes for backspacing. but if you do all 4 then the front will be out farther. so 2and 2 with no rotations in your tires life time.

    easy way is van width 14ff wideest stock axle.

    I would say the top of my tires stick out about an inch. I have 4.25 back spacing, but I have swampers too so the tread is a little wider. 3.5 would work for sure.

    Not sure if you can see in this picture my computer is ****ed up so it is dark for me. I am running 37 MTRs on 15X8 wagon wheels with 4.25 back spacing.
    I can get more pics when I get home.
